Pro Bowl voting update today…
Fan voting concluded at the end of the Monday Night Football game two days ago and the results are in:
Ben (935,535 votes) finished second behind New England’s Tom Brady (1.45 mil votes). Denver’s Tim Tebow finished third.
Ben was also in the Top Ten in overall votes, finishing 8th.
Maurkice Pouncey (376,457) and Troy Polamalu (230,649) were voted in as starters by the fans, and Mike Wallace came in second in voting (923,073) at his position.
The AFC and NFC All-Star squads are based on the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 43-man rosters that represent the American Football Conference and National Football Conference in the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on December 21st and 22nd.
The Pro Bowl teams will be announced on December 27th, at 7 p.m.
Thank you to everyone who voted for Ben and his teammates!
