2013 Pro Bowl: Game time, TV schedule, location, kickoff and more

The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

The Pro Bowl has become somewhat controversial of late as the game has become somewhat of a walkthrough. Certain players, however, are hoping that they can motivate others to treat it like a regular-season game before the Pro Bowl ceases to exist. Here's some info on watching the 2013 Pro Bowl.

The Pro Bowl has come under scrutiny lately as many believe it is nothing more than a walk through. It's true that the tenacity and speed that fans become accustomed to during the regular season disappears in the weekend between the AFC and NFC Championship games and the Super Bowl. After all, players don't want to injure themselves in a game that doesn't matter.

However, that may not fly with the league as there has been talk of canceling the Pro Bowl due to the fact that fans don't seem willing to tune in to a game that players don't take seriously. Lately, players like Peyton Manning and Champ Bailey have attempted to rally their peers to treat the Pro Bowl like a regular-season game to keep the tradition alive. It has yet to be seen whether those attempts will help make the Pro Bowl more exciting, though.

There are several from New York that have made the trip to Hawaii and will be playing in the Pro Bowl on Sunday. Those players include Giants quarterback Eli Manning, wide receiver Victor Cruz and guard Chris Snee as well as defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. Two players from the Jets secondary were voted in as well; they are cornerback Antonio Cromartie and safety LaRon Landry.

Sunday's Pro Bowl festivities begin at 2 p.m. EST but the game doesn't begin until 7 p.m. Here are some additional details.

Interesting Facts: Last year's Pro Bowl teams combined for more than 100 points as the AFC won by a score 59-41, and both the AFC and the NFC have won the league's all-star game a total of 21 times. The last time one conference won back-to-back Pro Bowls was when the NFC won in 2008 and '09. The last time the AFC won more than one Pro Bowl in a row was when it won in 2001, '02 and '03. This is only the second Pro Bowl played the weekend before the Super bowl.
