NFL 2023 Pro Bowl Game will be a Flag Football Game
The NFL is making major changes to the Pro Bowl format, beginning with this season’s event on February 5, 2023 in Las Vegas. With more and more of the participants opting for safety over physicality, including last season’s game at Allegiant Stadium that essentially deteriorated into a game of two-hand touch rather than full-on tackling, the league is taking a cue from its players and changing the game to make it a much safer competition.
The NFL announced that the multiday festivities planned for Las Vegas next year, which will be called the Pro Bowl Games and feature the best players from the AFC and NFC, will culminate with a game of flag football Feb. 5 at Allegiant Stadium.
Leading up to the Pro Bowl, the Pro Bowl Games also will feature a slew of events and challenges in which players participate in football and non-football competitions.
