NFL Pro Bowl Trivia
Up until 2013 the NFL Pro Bowl was officially known as the AFC-NFC
Pro Bowl, but starting in 2014, the two teams will be chosen by captains in a live fantasy football style draft. The first
Pro Bowl was played in 1951 and for the first twenty one years the game was played in Los Angeles, California. For the next
few years it was moved around until the 1980 game which was played in Aloha Stadium where it remained until 2010 when the
game was played in Miami before being moved back to its permanent spot in Aloha Stadium.
