As the final days of January trickle away, sports fans are in paradise. Major League Baseball is slowly becoming a part of the discussion again. March Madness approaches and so does the next NBA All-Star Game. This coming weekend, the AFC and NFC Championship Games will be played. That means that, yes, the Philadelphia Eagles are in action and looking to qualify for the Super Bowl for the second time in five years.

Once the winners of the NFC and AFC title games have been determined, the Pro Bowl will follow on February 5th before the Super Bowl occupies our minds until the game is finally played on February 12th. Here’s a question that we have to ask, Are any of you watching the Pro Bowl?

Sure, it gets a bad rap and all of that. This time around, however, it may be worth a peek.

Here’s how you can watch the 2023 Pro Bowl and all of the information that you’ll need about the festivities.

In a little over a week, the NFL’s brightest stars will converge on Las Vegas, despite long being seen as the weak link in the NFL’s sturdy chain, pro football’s all-star game is doing all that it can to be seen as being just as interesting as the all-star games w see in the NBA and MLB. Fingers are crossed for quality viewing entertainment this time around.

Here are the dates that you need to familiarize yourself with.

This time around, there are eight unique skills competitions and the first-ever NFL Flag football games. The AFC team is led by its head coach, Peyton Manning, Diana Flores (offensive coordinator), and defensive coordinator Ray Lewis.

On the NFC’s side, Eli Manning will serve as head coach. Vanita Krouch will serve as offensive coordinator while DeMarcus Ware mans the defensive coordinator duties.

Everything kicks off with skill challenges on Thursday, February 2nd that will be televised from 7-8:30 p.m. EST. On Sunday, the proceedings begin at 3 p.m. EST and run until 6 p.m. EST. That day’s activities include more skills challenges, a musical performance, and the first-ever NFL flag football game.

Will the Eagles be participating?

Eight Eagles were voted onto the Pro Bowl roster this season: QB Jalen Hurts, RB Miles Sanders, WR A. J. Brown, C Jason Kelce, T Lane Johnson, G Landon Dickerson, CB Darius Slay, and OLB Haason Reddick. Nine more Birds were named as alternates: T Jordan Mailata, G Isaac Seumalo, WR DeVonta Smith, DT Javon Hargrave, CB James Bradberry, DE Brandon Graham, DT Fletcher Cox, DE Josh Sweat, and LS Rick Lovato.

If the Eagles beat the San Francisco 49ers, Philly won’t be participating in the Pro Bowl as they’ll be gearing up for Super Bowl LVII. Let’s hope that’s how things play out.
