Is there an NFL Pro Bowl this year? Date, time, listings and more to watch Madden Pro Bowl 2021

Must read


The two-week hiatus between conference championship games and the Super Bowl really leaves some football fans in a downturn. At least there’s the Pro Bowl, right?

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the answer to this question in 2021 is a “kind of”. There will be a game, but not in person. As Zoom couldn’t handle a football game, apparently the NFL had to turn to the well-established Madden NFL franchise to stage the game.

Some would say the league should have started doing this a long time ago. Snoop Dogg will even be on a controller for part of the game. You tell me it’s no better than professional athletes who don’t try to compete because they play a very violent sport and it doesn’t. is that a star game?

While the NFL will surely be looking to bring the Pro Bowl back in 2022 as a real football game, this could be the beginning of the end for it. It would probably be more fun to watch NFL players react to their virtual selves’ movements in Madden, anyway.

So anyway, if you’re trying to watch this revamped version of the Pro Bowl, we’ve got all the details below, as well as the rosters who will participate.

Is there an NFL Pro Bowl this year?

There’s an NFL Pro Bowl this year – sort of.

There will be no real and actual Pro Bowl football game played in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Pro Bowl rosters have been chosen and will play against each other, but they will take place in EA Sports’ Madden NFL 21, the latest in the popular video game series.

What time does the Pro Bowl start?

  • Dated: Sunday January 31
  • Time: 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. ET

Pro Bowl coverage for 2021 will be split into two parts. First, at 3 p.m. ET there will be a “Pro Bowl Celebration” on ESPN and ABC. It will feature panel discussions with NFL legends as well as Joey Bosa and DeAndre Hopkins breaking down a football movie for younger viewers.

The (Madden) Pro Bowl itself will begin at 5 p.m. ET as a streaming event on the NFL’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels as well as EA’s Madden Twitch channel.

This is the usual Pro Bowl date, the Sunday between the Sunday Conference Championship and Super Bowl Sunday.

What channel is the Pro Bowl on?

  • TV channel: ABC, ESPN
  • Direct: The NFL’s Facebook, Twitter and YouTube channels; EA’s Madden Twitch Channel

For those looking to watch the Madden Pro Bowl stream, you won’t find it on terrestrial TV. Instead, you’ll need to use one of the NFL’s streaming platforms or access EA’s Madden Twitch channel. This game starts at 5 p.m. ET.

The action taking place on ABC and ESPN begins at 3 p.m. ET and includes various roundtables and other NFL discussions, but it won’t feature any actual gameplay. This can only be found on the various live streams starting at 5 p.m. ET.

Who plays the Madden Pro Bowl game?

It won’t just be a mock Madden version of the Pro Bowl. Big names will control every team in a battle for conference supremacy.

Control on the AFC side will be Snoop Dogg, Deshaun Watson, Derrick Henry and Keyshawn Johnson. Hopefully Watson doesn’t ask for a mid-game trade.

NFC players will include Bubba Wallace, Marshawn Lynch, Kyler Murray, and Jamal Adams. If we handicap ourselves assuming a younger age helps Madden’s prowess, the NFC has the advantage with all four players younger than Johnson and Snoop.

Pro Bowl Replacement Players

As there is no actual football game being played for the 2021 Pro Bowl, there is no need to replace players. Anyone can be healthy in the Madden video game.

A year ago there were 17 replacement players for the Pro Bowl, so this season allows a lot fewer players to call themselves Pro Bowlers. Conversely, this does not allow the league to compensate a snubbed player by inserting him as a replacement.
