It's not the Super Bowl, but the NFL still has fans covered this weekend with the 2019 Pro Bowl on Sunday, Jan. 27. Super Bowl LIII between the New England Patriots and Los Angeles Rams is still a week away, but first the NFL hosts its annual all-star game from Orlando, Florida.
While it may be a glorified exhibition game, the Pro Bowl features some of the best players the NFL has to offer along with some pairings you won't see during the regular season due to the AFC vs. NFC format. There's more than pride and bragging rights on the line as well. Win or lose, participants will get paid for their time spent in Orlando this week with the winning team taking home a nice check considering the circumstances.
So if you're wondering, "What football games are on today?" know this: There is one scheduled for today, Sunday, Jan. 27.
2019 Pro Bowl: AFC vs. NFC
3 p.m. ET on ABC/ESPN/Disney XD — Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.
Why You Should Watch: It's the NFL's all-star game. And while several players pulled out due to injury or another reason, nearly every team will be represented on the field on Sunday (with the exception of the Patriots and Rams). The relaxed rules and setting should provide plenty of opportunity for MVP front-runner Patrick Mahomes and other skill position players to shine, although that doesn't mean there won't be any defense. Last year's Pro Bowl was a one-point game (won by the AFC, 24-23) and featured six turnovers, including four interceptions. This is the third straight year the Pro Bowl has been hosted in Orlando since relocating from Hawaii and the AFC is 2-0 in the game's new home. Overall, the AFC holds a slim 23-22 advantage over the NFC.
