As for each celebrity’s reasons for accepting the prestigious positions, their motives vary. Davidson is inspired to lead his team to victory for his family and provided a very on-brand answer, stating “I’m doing this to impress my Uncle Mike.” For Dogg, his acceptance is fueled by the pure fire of competition. “I’m comin’ back to the NFL field, but this time, instead of performing, I’m going head-to-head with Pete and competing for the title of The Pro Bowl Games Champion,” he stated to PEOPLE Magazine. “The competition is going to go off, but we all know that Peyton and our AFC squad are gonna do some big things. We’ll end up on that podium.”
For the second season in a row, Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas will host the Pro Bowl Games. PEOPLE reports that players from each conference will be featured, including Patrick Mahomes, Josh Allen, Joe Burrow, Tyreek Hill, Davante Adams and Travis Kelce for the AFC, and Jalen Hurts, Geno Smith, Kirk Cousins, A.J. Brown and Jason Kelce for the NFC. That is, unless any of these players make it into Super Bowl LVII, which will place on Sunday, February 12th.
