The 2013 NFL Pro Bowl gets underway on Sunday night and players representing the New York Giants and New York Jets will be participating. The NFC fell to the AFC in their meeting last year, 59-41.

Representing the Giants will be quarterback Eli Manning, wide receiver Victor Cruz, offensive lineman Chris Snee and defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul. Manning threw for 3,948 yards this season and connected on 26 touchdown passes. Cruz had more than 1,000 receiving yards for the second consecutive season, and he set a new career high with 10 touchdown grabs. Pierre-Paul recorded 66 tackles, including 6.5 sacks, and Snee started every game for the Giants this past season.

Defensive backs Antonio Cromartie and LaRon Landry will represent the Jets. Cromartie intercepted three passes in 2012 and returned one of them for a touchdown. Landry amassed 99 tackles, picked off two passes and forced four fumbles.

The Pro Bowl kicks off at 7 p.m. ET on NBC. Mike McCarthy is coaching the NFC squad this year, while Mike Fox is leading the AFC team.
