Flashback Friday: Alex Mack touchdown in 2011 Pro Bowl

After the Cleveland Browns beat the Baltimore Colts 27-0 for the NFL Championship in 1964, the Colts Gino Marchetti supposedly made good on a promise (something Marchetti denies) to knock Browns quarterback Frank Ryan out of the game during the following week's Pro Bowl because he felt the Browns ran up the score in the NFL Championship Game. The quadcopters will be flying up to about 200 feet in the air and dropping footballs down to the wide receivers playing in the Pro Bowl.

The NFL will head into its all-star festivities over the weekend, which will culminate with the Pro Bowl.

That's the most representatives of any team in the game so this contest will have a decided Dallas feel to it, what with Jason Garrett and the Cowboys staff coaching the NFC and all.

Missing Va. mom, children found safe

I think they do and I hope they do and I hope it's here.

Star Wars: Episode 8 named 'The Last Jedi,' in theaters December
In other words, it might be a while before we see a film without the Star Wars brand top the yearly box office. It would be easy to assume that, similar to The Force Awakens, the title would refer to Rey ( Daisy Ridley ).

Building a fan base is key for the NFL's continued success. It seems kind of odd that the National Football League makes a ton of money during the playoffs - and Super Bowl - but the players who get there are paying for a fraction of what they normally get. In addition, throughout the almost two-hour program, Ed Werder (Falcons) and Sal Paolantonio (Patriots) will report from Houston as the Super Bowl LI teams arrive this weekend.

By the way, does anyone else wish Damon Harrison was in the Pro Bowl just so we could watch him play dodgeball?

13th time ESPN has televised the Pro Bowl - 1988-94, 2004-06, 2010 and 2015-16.
