A Brief History

The NFL Pro Bowl under its current name was sanctioned in the year 1950 but the concept was of a football all-star game first reared its head in the late 1930’s. It was in the year 1939 that the first NFL All-Star game was played. The New York Giants took on the NFL All-Stars in an encounter that was won by the former. The game was played every year till 1942 but was discarded because of the Second World War. The game was then given the title of "Pro Bowl" in 1950 and the first Post Second World War game took place on 14th January, 1951. The format was revamped as well and it was decided that all-star teams from both divisions will now go head to head. That remained the case all way till 1960. 1970 saw the AFL merge with NFL and that changed the format once again to AFC versus NFC contest. The first AFC versus NFC game was played on 24th January, 1971 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. That game was won by the latter by a score of 27-6. The format remained the same but the rules of the games were tweaked a little over the years to make it different from regular NFL games.

Who Won What?

Between 1951 and 1953 the National Conference won two games while the American Conference came out on top once. Between 1954 and 1969 when the league was divided into East and West, the former won it one six occasions while the latter came out on top eleven times. After the NFL-AFL merger the game started to be played between the National Football Conference and the American Football Conference. NFC teams have their noses in front with twenty two wins to AFC’s twenty one.

New Rules

The NFL has scrapped the AFC versus NFC format. The fans, coaches and the players will vote on the players from both conference and the players with the highest votes will then go into another pool. They will then be selected through a fantasy football styled draft to make it complete the two rosters. There will be two offensive and defensive captains each as well selected according to the votes they get. A total of eighty eight players at the end will qualify for the final Pro Bowl draft. The latest edition of the NFL Pro Bowl is now just around the corner with a brand new look. The game has got football fans excited for what will for sure be another fascinating encounter between the best players in the sport today.
