Up to 11 Broncos players will participate in Pro Bowl two weeks from now

New, comments

We'll see at least a handful of Broncos one more time this season.

It's not much of a consolation, but Broncos fans will get a chance to see their favorite players on the field one more time before the 2014 season officially comes to an end.

Two weeks from now, the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl will be played on Jan. 25, 2015 at 8 p.m. ET on ESPN in Glendale, Arizona. An NFL-high nine Broncos players were voted into the game by fans, coaches, and peers last month.

In addition to those nine Broncos, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and running back C.J. Anderson are alternates for the Pro Bowl.

Alternates are often called up to play in the game.

If Marshawn Lynch is playing in the Super Bowl and/or one of the other five RBs does not make the trip due to an injury or alleged injury, Anderson would likely be pulled up as a replacement. The same goes for Jordy Nelson and T.Y. Hilton—if one of them cannot play in the Pro Bowl, Sanders is an option to replace them.

Anderson, who totaled 1,173 yards from scrimmage and scored 10 touchdowns during the regular season, showed heart all season and into the playoffs. Anderson's relentless effort would be a welcomed change to an often boring All-Star game.

Sanders was one of this year's biggest snubs.

Sanders finished the year with 101 catches for 1,404 yards and 9 touchdowns.

In 1998, Denver had a franchise-high 10 players elected to the Pro Bowl. If their two alternates get in this year, they'll break that mark.
