The Baltimore Ravens have racked up10 consecutive wins to push them atop the NFL’s standings. Now, they’re leading the league in another category – Pro Bowl selections.
When the NFL announced the rosters for the 2020 Pro Bowl on Tuesday night, it revealed that 12 Ravens players received Pro Bowl recognition this season. It sets the NFL record for most selections, excluding alternate nominees.
Quarterback Lamar Jackson ran away with the voting at an incredible count. Of course, it’s certainly expected in an MVP-caliber season that has seen him break Michael Vick’s single-season rushing record and lead the NFL in touchdown passes (33).
Jackson is joined by many of his teammates on both sides of the ball. Running back Mark Ingram, tight end Mark Andrew, fullback Pat Ricard offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley and offensive guard Marshal Yanda earned selections. Meanwhile, defensive backs Marcus Peters, Earl Thomas and Marlon Humphrey and outside linebacker Matthew Judon also received the honor.
Baltimore’s special-teams unit earned some love as well with kicker Justin Tucker and long snapper Morgan Cox named Pro Bowl selections.
The New Orleans Saints received the second-most Pro Bowl selections with seven players receiving the honor. The Kansas City Chiefs had the third-most with six players on the first Pro Bowl roster. Meanwhile, the New York Giants and Miami Dolphins didn’t have a single player receive the recognition.
The 2020 Pro Bowl will be held in Orlando, Florida, at Camping World Stadium on Jan. 26, 2020. Of course, every team hopes it gets to decline the invite and play in Super Bowl LIV instead.
