The NFL decided to forego the traditional on-field Pro Bowl showdown between the AFC and NFC’s Pro Bowl players due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In its place, they will broadcast a Madden competition between the AFC and NFC. Each conference will have a team of four representatives playing head-to-head, quarter by quarter.
Who will be representing the AFC and NFC Madden teams? We take a look at their rosters here.
AFC Madden Team
Each Madden team consists of four NFL players from their respective conference, who will each play one five-minute quarter in the Pro Bowl. The AFC will be represented by QB Deshaun Watson, RB Derrick Henry, rapper Snoop Dogg and former wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson.
Snoop Dogg, a self-proclaimed Madden NFL star, has been featured in a number of high-profile Madden games, including a head-to-head competition with Marquise Brown last spring. He’s proclaimed his fandom for the Pittsburgh Steelers most passionately, but he’s been seen all over Hollywood sporting gear of plenty of other NFL teams.
NFC Madden Team
Each Madden team consists of four NFL players from their respective conference, who will each play one five-minute quarter in the Pro Bowl. The NFC will be represented by QB Kyler Murray, S Jamal Adams, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, and former RB Marshawn Lynch.
