Everything You Need to Know for 2018 Pro Bowl

28_WhatToExpectProBowl_news.jpg


The Pro Bowl will take place at Orlando's Camping World Stadium today at 3 p.m.

This is the second-straight year the NFL has played the game in Orlando, and Baltimore's three participants are linebackers C.J. Mosley and Terrell Suggs, and safety Eric Weddle.

"It's humbling, it's special, and you don't want to take it for granted because you never know if you'll be back," Weddle said during practice week.

This year's game will follow the traditional AFC vs. NFC format and here are the details on how you can watch/listen to the game, and also what to expect from the Ravens' contingency:

What kind of mischief does Suggs have planned?

Suggs has a reputation for operating as the class clown in Baltimore. His booming voice carries throughout the team facility and he often uses down time in practice to crack jokes with his teammates. This is Suggs' seventh Pro Bowl selection, and he's seems to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere throughout the week in Orlando. Suggs is an entertainer who loves a big stage, and he could certainly have some tricks up his sleeve to spice up a game that typically isn't all that competitive.

Can Weddle get his hands on a football?

The veteran safety led the Ravens with six interceptions this season and he'll likely have an opportunity to get another one Sunday in the pass-happy game. In practice throughout the week, Weddle was often chastising Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (a good friend of his off the field) to throw up some picks. Weddle snagged a few in practice, so he'll be ready to continue that trend on gameday.

What kind of tackling do we see from Mosley?

Mosley is a tackling machine. He flies all over the field to make stops and he led the Ravens with 132 tackles this year. He'll have the same job on Sunday, but the Pro Bowl isn't exactly designed to see players put up big tackle numbers. It's a game about offense, and the tackling is usually suspect because the players want to take care of each other. Mosley may opt to dial back the intensity a bit to avoid any unnecessary injuries.
