Lions shut out
Imagine this, no Lions made the NFC Pro Bowl roster released on Tuesday. Also there were no Falcons, no Bucs and no Seahawks.
No surprises either. The Vikings lead the NFC with eight Pro Bowlers. The Lions have faced all three NFC quarterbacks Drew Brees, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers.
For the first time the Pro Bowl will be played in a location other than Honolulu. Kickoff will be at 7:30 p.m. on Jan. 31 at Dolphin Stadium in South Florida.
