The 2022-2023 NFL Pro Bowl Games begin on Thursday, February 2 with five skills competitions. On Sunday, February 5, there will be three flag football games and three more skills competitions between the two conferences. The winner of each skills competition earns three points for his conference. There will be a total of eight skills competitions.
The winner of each of the first two flag football games earns six points for their conference. Points from the eight skills competitions and the first two flag games are added together and that will be the score at the beginning of the third flag football game. The third flag football game will determine the overall winner of the Pro Bowl Games.
The flag football games will be played 7 vs. 7. Each game will be 20 minutes in length, with two, 10-minute halves. The game will take place on a 50-yard field with two 10-yard end zones. Touchdowns are worth six points. There are two different options for conversions: one-point conversion from the three-yard line and two-point conversion from the 10-yard line. Safeties and returned conversion attempts are worth two points.

In 1938, the NFL staged its first Pro All-Star Game that featured an all-star team against that year’s league champion. That format continued for five years until the game was discontinued due to the events of WWII. The game was revived in 1950 as the Pro Bowl with all-star teams from the league’s two conferences competing against each other. That model continued in some form until the 2013 game where captains selected a roster in a player draft.
The NFL returned to a conference format for the 2016 game with the AFC winning all five contests since the switch. Unfortunately, the 2020 Pro Bowl was cancelled due to COVID, but the 2021 edition of the game was exciting with a total of 76 points scored in a back-and-forth affair.
Three of the first five touchdowns in this past Pro Bowl were defensive scores. Darius Leonard had a pick-six, and Antoine Winfield Jr. ended the first quarter with a pick-six of his own. Myles Garrett returned a fumble 22 yards for a touchdown just 12 seconds later, and that helped the AFC get out to a 20-point lead. The NFC tried to make it close at the end with two fourth quarter touchdowns, but their comeback bid stopped there.
