2016 Pro Bowl Balloting Live On

Intro: 2016 Pro Bowl voting is now open to fans on Through six weeks of the season, a few Colts players have certainly warranted consideration for a trip to Hawaii.


INDIANAPOLIS – Voting for the 2016 Pro Bowl in Hawaii is now live on

Last season, the Colts had seven Pro Bowlers (Andrew Luck, T.Y. Hilton, D'Qwell Jackosn, Vontae Davis, Mike Adams, Adam Vinatieri and Pat McAfee).

In 2015, Adams, Jackson and McAfee are well on their way to warranting Pro Bowl consideration again this season.

Adams is tied for the NFL lead with four interceptions.

Jackson's 71 combined tackles are 12 more than any player in the league through six weeks.

McAfee's net punting average of 46.5 is more than a yard better than anyone else in the NFL. The Colts also lead the league in allowing just 3.4 yards per punt return.

More information on the 2016 Pro Bowl (Sunday, January 31) is below:

Fans can begin voting to select players for the 2016 Pro Bowl, the NFL announced today. Voting is available online and on web-enabled mobile phones by going to

Balloting will conclude on Tuesday, December 15. The Pro Bowl players will be announced on Tuesday, December 22 live on NFL Network.

Players will later be assigned to teams through the Pro Bowl Draft during the week leading up to the game, which will also air on NFL Network.

The 2016 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 31, 2016 and televised live on ESPN from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. Game tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, November 16. Fans can register on for notifications regarding exclusive ticket presale opportunities.

The 2016 Pro Bowl will continue using the revised game format that debuted with the 2014 Pro Bowl, with NFL Legends captains having final say over Pro Bowl Draft decisions. The Pro Bowl will remain "unconferenced," with several key playing rules changed. Players will be selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players and later assigned to Pro Bowl teams via a fantasy football-style draft.

The 2016 Pro Bowl Draft Show will be televised on Wednesday, January 27 in primetime.

Four leading vote getters – comprised of two offensive and two defensive player captains – will be joined by two fantasy football champions to draft players.

The fantasy football champion will have Hall of Fame help. Two Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receivers – MICHAEL IRVIN and JERRY RICE – will serve as NFL Legends captains for the 2016 Pro Bowl. Irvin and Rice return for the second time after being the winning captains during the previous two Pro Bowls.

The Pro Bowl players are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group's vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players who will be eligible for the Pro Bowl Draft.

NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 18. The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams. It was the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.
