NFLOL-Pro-Bowl-Tailgate-Party-Hawaii-GroupThe Pro Bowl returns to Hawaii's Aloha Stadium on January 31, 2016. It's Team Rice against Team Irvin squaring off in the game that brings you closer to the players through fun insider access.

The NFL's top two vote-getters become team captains for Jerry Rice's team and Michael Irvin's team. In a fantasy draft-style setting, the captains pick from the voted All-Stars to form the teams. And when the stars are realigned, it's teammate versus teammate in the new Pro Bowl: Unconferenced.

Irvin and Rice will have final say over the drafting of the players to their teams after the votes of who is in and out of the Pro Bowl have been determined. They will be assisted in the draft process by defensive “legend” co-captains, two active player captains and one fantasy football champion.

With the excitement of the NFL’s all-star game reaching an all-time high, we thought it would be appropriate to countdown some of the biggest moments in Pro Bowl history. In no way are we saying these are ALL of the biggest moments but these were definitely some of the ones that have kept us talking years later. Let’s take a look!
