INDIANAPOLIS – If NFL fans had their way, Pat McAfee would be heading to his second straight Pro Bowl.

There is a very good chance that McAfee will be heading to Hawaii this year for the 2016 Pro Bowl on Sunday, Jan. 31.

With the players and coaches yet to vote, McAfee, safety Mike Adams, inside linebacker D'Qwell Jackson and kicker Adam Vinatieri have the best chance to represent the Colts at this year's Pro Bowl.

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.

The 2016 Pro Bowl players will be revealed exclusively on NFL Network on Tuesday, December 22 at 8:00 PM ET on NFL Network.

Players will later be assigned to teams through the Pro Bowl Draft, which will air on ESPN2 on Wednesday, January 27.
