The NFL announced Wednesday the complete rosters for the 2022 Pro Bowl, and in a season defined by parity across the standings, it should be no surprise to see such balance reflected in the all-star teams.

AFC Pro Bowl Roster 2022: Players, Prediction, Voting, Selections
Eight NFL teams are sending at least five players to Las Vegas, where the game will be played Feb. 6 at Allegiant Stadium, led by the streaking Indianapolis Colts with seven: running back Jonathan Taylor, defensive lineman DeForest Buckner, center Ryan Kelly, linebacker Darius Leonard, cornerback Kenny Moore II, guard Quenton Nelson and long snapper Luke Rhodes.
The Kansas City Chiefs (six), Los Angeles Chargers (six), Baltimore Ravens (five), Cleveland Browns (five), Dallas Cowboys (five), San Francisco 49ers (five) and Tampa Bay Buccaneers (five) were the other teams to have at least five Pro Bowlers.
The actual Pro Bowl rosters use improper position designations on the ballot, so we went ahead and used the correct groupings by selecting from edge defenders, interior defensive linemen and off-ball linebackers to give credit where it’s actually due.
Brady is coming off a poor performance in Week 15 on Sunday Night Football that ended in zero points and a 47.6 PFF grade, but it is just one of a few bad outings from his 2020 season. In fact, it was over 15 grading points lower than his next worst.
One of the biggest breakout players of the 2021 season is none other than Patterson, who is in his ninth season in the NFL.
He has always been considered an elite kick returner but has struggled to consistently find a role on the offense.
In his first year in Atlanta, Patterson has finally done so, as he has moved to the backfield. Over half of his snaps have come in the backfield this year, and he’s earned an 86.0 PFF grade overall. Patterson’s receiving grade is even better at 91.8.
