Pro Bowl 2023: The 2023 Pro Bowl is undergoing a bit of a facelift. After years of diminishing returns with the traditional Pro Bowl, the league has finally opted to change the format of the Pro Bowl, instead opting for a weeks’ worth of games followed by a flag-football matchup between the two conferences.
When is the 2023 Pro Bowl game?
- Date: Sunday, Feb. 5

What channel is the Pro Bowl on?
Pro Bowl 2023 schedule of events

Still, Pro Bowl selections remain, despite the more lax approach to this year’s game. The top vote-getters in each conference have already been revealed, with Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa the leading man in either conference. Also joining Tua in Vegas are Los Angeles defensive lineman Aaron Donald and Packers DB Jaire Alexander.
After calls from fans for change for years, the NFL‘s all-star contest will get a facelift at the 2023 Pro Bowl. There will no longer be a listless 60-minute game between the two conferences but, rather, there will be a flag football game featuring a 7-on-7 contest between some of the league’s best who aren’t injured or playing in the Super Bowl.
In addition, there will also be a wide-ranging skills competition between selected competitors who made the Pro Bowl. This should make the entire event, being held now in Las Vegas, quite a bit more fun for the players, for the fans, and really for everyone.
With the new format, fans are sure to be curious how they can watch everything, whether they’re in attendance or watching at home. We’ve got you covered with the Pro Bowl 2023 schedule and the rules you need to know for the contests.
