The Eagles have the best record in the NFL at 9-1 and a big reason is the play of the second-year quarterback Carson Wentz. But it’s not just the NFL that has taken notice of the Philadelphia signal caller, it’s the fans as well.
The NFL announced today that Wentz is leading all players in fan balloting for the 2018 NFL Pro Bowl.
With 273,367 votes, Wentz is ahead of Tom Brady (239,989 votes) and Le’Veon Bell (227,771) in overall voting.
In just his second season, Wentz has played like an MVP, leading the NFL in 25 touchdown passes in helping Philadelphia to their best start in over a decade.
To cast a Pro Bowl vote, fans can tweet the first and last name of the player, or the player’s official Twitter handle, along with the hashtag: #ProBowlVote. This method is in addition to the online ballot at NFL.com/ProBowlVote and the DM Voting Experience, which will both be available throughout the voting period.
The 2018 Pro Bowl, which kicks off at a new start time of 3:00 PM ET, will be televised live from Camping World Stadium on ESPN and ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC. Players for the game 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 selected to the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Friday, December 15.
Pro Bowl rosters will be announced on Tuesday, December 19 live on NFL Network’s Pro Bowl special “NFL Total Access: Pro Bowl Players Revealed” at 8:00 PM ET.
