The Pro Bowl has been overhauled this year, adding some intrigue to an event that had lost its luster over the past decade.
Instead of playing a standard football game, players will compete in a series of skills challenges in Las Vegas before coming together for a flag football game.
The events began on Thursday with a dodgeball and some initial skills challenges, but the centerpiece of the weekend takes place on Sunday for the Pro Bowl’s inaugural flag football game.
While, yes, the past edition of the Pro Bowl looked more like a flag football game than an actual football game, the new format could certainly energize the players and bring back some of what the event used to be.
Here’s everything you need to know about when to watch the Pro Bowl Games on Sunday.
What time is the NFL Pro Bowl today?
- Date: Sunday, Feb. 5

The final day of Pro Bowl festivities is set to begin at 3 p.m. ET. That includes the flag football game between some of the NFL’s best players, but Sunday’s action will also feature a handful of skills challenges.
The challenges will include a competition for best catch, a “Gridiron Gauntlet” relay race, a competition for kickers, and a “Move the Chains” competition designed to showcase players’ strength.
What channel is the Pro Bowl on today?
- TV channel (national): ESPN | ABC | Disney XD
- Live stream: ESPN+, fuboTV
The Pro Bowl will look much different this year, but it remains available to watch on ABC and ESPN. The games will also be simulcasted on Disney XD.
Viewers without cable can stream the Pro Bowl Games on ESPN+ or fuboTV, which offers a free trial.
The new slate of events does mean the broadcaster lineup is changing. Kirk Herbstreit and Pat McAfee will be on the call for the flag football game, while Robert Griffin III, Marcus Spears, and Laura Rutledge will handle the skills competition.
Ryan Clark and Dan Orlovsky joined the broadcast for the skills challenges that took place earlier in the week.
NFL Pro Bowl fan voting results 2023
Dolphins fans were out in full force during Pro Bowl voting, as Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill were the league’s leading vote-getters this year. Tagovailoa won’t be on the field as he continues to recover from a concussion.
Patrick Mahomes finished third, but you won’t see him in Las Vegas either as he gears up for his third Super Bowl appearance. Travis Kelce, who finished fifth in voting, will be by his side as the Chiefs prepare to face the Eagles.
Still, there will be a barrage of stars in Las Vegas for what amounts to a grand experiment for the NFL.
Here are the vote totals for the top-five finishers.
