The NFL announced its selections for the annual Pro Bowl held on Jan. 28, and it will be highlighted by AFC starting quarterback Tom Brady of New England, going against NFC's Carson Wentz of Philadelphia. 

This season marked the 13th time Brady has been named to the Pro Bowl. For Wentz, it marks his first selection. 

Of course there is a decent chance neither Wentz or Brady will participate in the Pro Bowl. Both quarterbacks' respective squads are among the favorites to make the Super Bowl, which is held one week following the Pro Bowl. 

Pittsburgh led the league with eight Pro Bowl selections, including quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. 

Here is the full roster, as announced by the NFL:
