Matthew Stafford made only one Pro Bowl in his 12 years in Detroit. He continues to wait for his second Pro Bowl nod, which seemed like a lock in his first season with the Rams.

Players, coaches and fans selected Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray over Stafford, even though Murray missed three games this season.

The NFL announced the rest of the Pro Bowl rosters Wednesday night after initially naming five Pro Bowlers on Monday in billboards in Las Vegas to promote the game scheduled for Feb. 6. The league announced 13 more Pro Bowlers before the Monday Night Football doubleheader.

Tom Brady made his 15th Pro Bowl, breaking a five-way tie with Tony Gonzalez, Bruce Matthews, Merlin Olsen and Peyton Manning for the most all-star selections ever. It was the first time he has made the NFC team. Murray was selected over Brady in 2020, which was Murray’s first selection.

Aaron Rodgers was selected as the starter in the NFC for the 2022 game, his 10th selection.

Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert was selected as the starter for the AFC. Patrick Mahomes and Lamar Jackson also made the roster at the position.

The Colts led the way with seven Pro Bowlers. The Chiefs (six), Chargers (six), Ravens (five), Browns (five), Cowboys (five), 49ers (five) and Buccaneers (five) all had at least five on the all-star teams.
