The 2022 Pro Bowl was the National Football League all-star game for the 2021 NFL season. It was played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada, on February 6, 2022.[1] ESPN, ABC and Disney XD had the national television rights.[2] Voting for the game started on November 16.[3] The entire roster was announced on December 22.[4][5][6][7] Mike Vrabel from the Tennessee Titans coached the AFC team, while Matt LaFleur from the Green Bay Packers coached the NFC team.[8]

Background

The league awarded the game to Allegiant Stadium, as a make-up for the 2021 Pro Bowl, which was originally scheduled to be held in that stadium before the COVID-19 pandemic forced alternative festivities to take place instead of an actual game. With the league expanding the regular season from a 16-game schedule to 17 games, the Pro Bowl was moved from the last weekend in January to the first weekend in February.[2]

In the first quarter and a half, the NFC matched the AFC touchdown for touchdown, with the latter team leading by one due an unsuccessful two-point conversion after the NFC's second touchdown. After the AFC scored another touchdown before halftime, they continued to extend their lead in the third quarter with two more touchdowns, which gave them a 20-point lead at the end of that quarter. The NFC attempted a comeback, scoring 14 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, but the AFC took back and kept possession for the final two and a half minutes, securing their fifth consecutive Pro Bowl win.[9]
