2017 Pro Bowl Head-to-Head: Defense

This is the day when we say to ourselves, “Why is there a Pro Bowl?”  Maybe its so that sports analysts can write something between the conference games and Super Bowl.  This year, we all hope will be different.  The dodge ball was fun, but now we get to see if that motivated the players to play well.  Anyways, lets see who wins out in the defense…

 

Advantage at Defensive Line

AFC

The AFC has the advantage at line, even though the NFC has Michael Bennett and Fletcher Cox, the AFC has Geno Atkins, Dunlap, Lenard Williams, and Suh.  They barely edge out the NFC, especially sine Atkins and Dunlap play together, which will help them communicate easily.  An argument can be made for the NFC though.

Advantage at Linebacker

NFC

Yes, the AFC does have Von Miller, but they do not have the consistency that the NFC has.  The NFC has Wagner and Lee at inside linebacker, Barr, Davis and K.J. Wright.  The AFC does have Shazier, and Brown at Inside-Linebacker, which is good, but not as much as Wagner and Lee.

Advantage at Secondary

NFC

This is totally the NFC’s strongest group, the AFC has Talib and Harris, they also have Reggie Nelson and Weddle, but that is minor considering who the NFC has.  They have Xavier Rhodes, Clinton-dix, Landon Collins, but most importantly, they have Patrick Peterson and Richard Sherman, those guys are arguably the best of the best, so watch out AFC QB’s.

 

Well, my prediction is that the AFC will win, because of the coaching of Andy Reid and the special teams of Toub.  The score will (I hope) will be 41-35 AFC.  It could be different, you never know in the pro bowl.

Well, there you have it, fellow Sports Reaction’ists.  What do you believe would help the Pro Bowl?  Remember, be the best sports fan you can be.
