With one week remaining, Carson Wentz leads NFL in Pro Bowl polls, five Eagles lead their positions

There’s just one week left to vote your favorite players into the Pro Bowl. If you’re a fan of the Philadelphia Eagles, fear not. It’s almost a certainty that in just his second season, Carson Wentz will be named to his first Pro Bowl. As things stand, he still leads ALL NFL players in public votes.

With 562,958 votes to his name, Carson Wentz has electrified the polls as he has the league with his play this season. A league leading 29 touchdowns and just 6 interceptions have seen Wentz rise to the top of many QB rankings, but his Houdini-like ability to extend plays and escape danger have made him one of the most exciting signal-callers in the league.

Tom Brady sits second behind Wentz with 499,727 votes, while Le’Veon Bell is around 700,000 back in third place. The top 10 vote-getters can be seen here:

 

Wentz won’t be the only Eagle competing in the event either. The following Eagles lead their positions in the NFC:

TE Zach Ertz 319,783
RT Lane Johnson 140,332
C Jason Kelce 162,767
DT Fletcher Cox 199,589
ST Kamu Grugier-Hill 62,871

The 2018 Pro Bowl, which kicks off at a new start time of 3:00 PM ET on Sunday, January 28, 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.

During the final week of 2018 Pro Bowl voting – December 7-14 – fans will be able to vote directly on Twitter. To cast such a vote, fans should tweet the first and last name of the player, or the player’s official Twitter handle, along with the hashtag: #ProBowlVote.
