The Pro Bowl rosters were announced last Wednesday. Kansas City fans were overjoyed to find five of their own selected:

  • OLB Tamba Hali: 45 tackles, 6.5 sacks, 2 FF
  • OLB Justin Houston: 30 tackles, 7.5 sacks, 2 INT’s, FF
  • CB Marcus Peters: 8 INT’s, 2 TD’s
  • TE Travis Kelce: 865 yards, 5 TD’s
  • S Eric Berry: 61 tackles, 2 INT’s

These players were selected as Pro Bowl alternates:

  • QB Alex Smith: 3,330 yards, 18 TD
  • ILB Derrick Johnson: 106 tackles, 2 INT’s, 4.0 sacks
  • DT Dontari Poe: 38 tackles, 1 sack
  • P Dustin Colquitt: 70 punts, 45.1 average, 33 inside the 20

2016 marks Hali’s and Houston’s sixth and fourth, respectively, Pro Bowl invites, respectively, while this is Kelce’s and Peters, a rookie, first. After being diagnosed with Lymphoma last December, Berry has made an epic return to the game of football this season, earning his fourth Pro Bowl nod.

Despite the seemingly low sack numbers from Houston and Hali, their return to the Pro Bowl proves that they are not just situational sack masters, but elite defenders of the pass and run. Travis Kelce, despite the loss of targets to Jeremy Maclin, is just 41 yards away from setting a new career high in receiving yards. Unfortunately, rising numbers did not equate Bowl nods for all the Chiefs. Take Johnson, who at 33 years is playing some of the best football of his life, was snubbed for Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, who recorded just 63 tackles, 1.5 more sacks, and fewer interceptions.

Overall, the Pro Bowl invites are just another beacon of proof that Kansas City is turning the corner in becoming a dominant franchise.

  1. Traditionally, both professional and collegiate teams are invited to celebrate with the President at the White House after winning a championship. Under the Trump administration, however, this has not always been the case. Several teams, both collegiate and professional, have either declined invitations or have not been invited at all.
