While the Pro Bowl lacks any competitive nature with no real rewards, it’s the last chance to watch Giants players suit up in the 2018 season. For the players, the Pro Bowl is a vacation rather than a typical work week. The pressure and stakes are incredibly low, letting participants relax and slack off in wonderful Orlando, Fla.
In the last four AFC versus NFC matchups — ignoring the confusing period when Hall of Famers picked their teams — the AFC was victorious in three of the games. Last Pro Bowl, the AFC narrowly defeated the NFC 24-23.
The week also featured the Skills Showdown, in which players compete in miscellaneous games vaguely related to football — including dodge ball. Of course, rookie Saquon Barkley found a way to show off his dominant athleticism.
