There won't be a Pro Bowl game in 2021, but fans can still play a big role in making their favorite Browns players Pro Bowlers.
Fan voting for the Pro Bowl opened Tuesday and will run through Thursday, Dec. 17. Votes can be cast in the following three ways:
- Through Madden NFL 21 Mobile and Madden NFL 21 on consoles.
- Directly on Twitter during the final two weeks of voting (Dec. 1 - Dec. 17). Fans can vote directly on Twitter by tweeting the first and last name of the player, tagging the player's official Twitter handle or creating a hashtag including the player's first and last name. All three of these methods must include the hashtag: #ProBowlVote.
The Browns have plenty of worthy candidates for this year's rosters, whether it be any member of the dominant offensive line, either one of the dynamic RB duo of Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt, defensive stars Myles Garrett and Denzel Ward or any one of the team's key special teams players.
NFL players and coaches will cast their votes Friday, Dec. 18. Votes by players, coaches and fans all count as one-third of the total that determines which players will make the Virtual Pro Bowl rosters.
The league recently announced the cancelation of the Pro Bowl game, which was slated to be played at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. On Tuesday, the NFL announced it would partner with EA SPORTS to produce a week-long series of matchups featuring celebrities, NFL Legends, current players, and streamers playing as the official Pro Bowl rosters in Madden NFL 21. It will culminate with a virtual Pro Bowl game played with 2021 Pro Bowl players facing off within Madden NFL 21.
