NFL Super Bowl XLVII Excitement Building – Pro Bowl Sunday

Posted 26 January 2013 by in Sports

NFL Pro Bowl 2013THUNDER BAY – Sports – The NFL Super Bowl XLVII is starting to generate the excitement as the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers continue to prepare for the Championship Game.  The NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers and the AFC Champion Baltimore Ravens  will be arriving at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport via charter planes on Sunday evening.

The NFL All-Star Game will take place once again at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii and will be the signature event to start the week leading up to Super Bowl XLVII between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers in New Orleans (Sunday, February 3, CBS).

“It’s a tremendous honor and I am very humbled to receive this recognition,” stated Denver quarterback Peyton Manning,  whose 12 All-Star selections are the most for a quarterback in AFC-NFC Pro Bowl history. “Being voted to the Pro Bowl by your opponents, their coaches and of course the fans means a great deal to me, especially when you consider how many other quarterbacks in the AFC had outstanding seasons. This recognition shows that our offensive line did a great job with protection. It shows that our wide receivers and tight ends made a lot of plays.”

For the fourth consecutive year, the Pro Bowl will be played the week before the Super Bowl. The 2012 Pro Bowl on NBC was watched by an average of 12.5 million viewers, making it the most-watched All-Star game of any sport for the third consecutive year.

The week of excitement starts Sunday with the Pro Bowl and continues through the entire week from New Orleans.
