Super Bowl 56 may not be until next week, but there is still live football on during the penultimate Sunday of the NFL season.
That would be the 2022 Pro Bowl. The event returns after a one-season hiatus, as the league chose not to play the perennial all-star game in 2021 due to COVID concerns.
But now, the league is bringing its all-star showcase back and bringing it to Las Vegas for the first time. Players like Justin Herbert, Jonathan Taylor and Kyler Murray will be on display as in the exhibition matchup between the AFC and NFC, which often features little defense.
The Pro Bowl may not be the real football that fans crave anymore. But hey, it’s still an opportunity to watch some of the NFL’s best and brightest compete one more time before a lengthy offseason hiatus. People will watch it as a result.
How can you watch the Pro Bowl in 2022? Here’s everything to know about the broadcast of the NFL’s all-star showcase featuring the AFC vs. the NFC.
