Don't miss the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl this Sunday at 8:00 PM ET on ESPN.
1. Odell Beckham Jr.
It's rare for the rookie WR to make a Pro Bowl roster. But how many AMAZING catches did Odell Beckham Jr. make this season? We expect him to put on a show.
2. Team Irvin - Sack Attack
Team Irvin is full of players who can bring the heat such as Cameron Wake, Robert Quinn, DeMarcus Ware, Von Miller, and Clay Matthews. Look for the Team Carter QBs to be flushed from the pocket often.
3. Andrew Luck - Offensive MVP
Fresh off the tough loss to the Patriots, look for Indianapolis Colts QB Andrew Luck to light up the scoreboard walk away with the MVP trophy.
4. Points, Points Points.
Everyone knows that the Pro Bowl is all about the offenses. With the collection of talent this year, we're thinking that we'll see over 100 points scored between the two squads.
5. Justin Houston - Defensive MVP
Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston might be the best player in the NFL that no one talks about. Keep you eyes on him when he's on the field, you'll be blown away by his talent.

Catch the 2015 Pro Bowl on Sunday, January 25, 2015 on ESPN at 8:00 PM ET.
Catch NFL RUSH TV Wednesday at 10:00 PM ET on Nicktoons!
The 49ers offense is led by quarterback Colin Kaepernick, running back Frank Gore, and tight end Vernon Davis. How they do against the tough Rams defense, which features DE Robert Quinn, will very likely decide who wins the game.
Tonight will be the first nationally-televised game for the Rams talented young quarterback Austin Davis. He'll be facing a punishing 49ers defense in his primetime debut.
Catch all the action tonight on ESPN starting at 8:30 PM ET!
Throughout NFL history a dominant defensive line has been the cornerstone of every truly great team. If your defense can stifle the opponent's offensive game plan, then you stand a very good chance of winning a lot of games.
The St. Louis Rams are not yet considered a great team, but, if history holds true, they just might be closer than you think.
The Rams are led by their defensive ends, the unstoppable sack machine Robert Quinn (19 sacks), and veteran Chris Long (8 1/2 sacks). Talented run-stuffers Michael Brockers (5 1/2 sacks) and Kendall Langford (5.0 sacks) control the middle of the field. As if they needed any more talent, they drafted the best pass-rusher in the draft this year in tackle Aaron Donald. The Rams D will be down right scary-good this year!
Do you agree or disagree? Vote in the poll below and leave a blast in the comments!
The 1st pick of the draft, for the first time since the Texans picked Mario Williams in the 2006 draft, was a defensive player. This time the Texans, who had a 2-14 record last year, picked Jadeveon Clowney, a monster defensive end from South Carolina. Clowney was the consensus top pick, but there was still some suspense before the pick was announced last Thursday. There will be even more suspense come September, when the NFL regular season starts. Clowney, who will pair with former Ddefensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt, is expected to be the best defensive rookie in the NFL in 2014, but there will be stiff competition for Defensive Rookie of the Year. Here are a few other notable defenders that could give Clowney a run for his money this year and for years to come.
1. Khalil Mack, Linebacker, Oakland Raiders- Some experts thought that the Texans could opt to get Mack. The former Buffalo linebacker, who was projected to go as high as the 3 spot to Jacksonville, fell to the 5 spot. The Raiders took Mack off the board in what some say was the best pick of the draft. Mack is a complete player who can be the leader of the Oakland defense for the next 10 years if he pans out. He will also have support during his first few years in the league- Justin Tuck and Charles Woodson are accomplished veterans that could mentor Mack.
2. Aaron Donald, Defensive Tackle, St. Louis Rams- Chris Long, Michael Brockers, Robert Quinn, and now Aaron Donald? This could be the best defensive line in football since the Panthers in 2003. Donald, former Pitt Panther, is the best interior lineman in the draft class and is a solid run blocker. He will be able to learn from the current Rams starters and could fight his way into the starting rotation. If Donald is able to start, he could rack up big numbers and challenge Clowney as the best rookie next season.
3. Darqueze Dennard, CB, Cincinnati Bengals- Cincinnati lost a lot of great defenders in free agency, but the addition of Dennard should make the secondary changes an upgrade. Dennard is the best corner in the draft and should start immediately. Few cornerbacks are as aggressive as the former Michigan State Spartan and that skill will translate to the NFL. Dennard is also massively underrated after falling to the 24 spot in the first round.
Verdict: All four players should be excellent in their first year, but Clowney's freakish talent that was shown two years ago should translate to the NFL and make him the best defensive player in this class for years to come.
The first ever fantasy-style draft was held to determine the rosters of the two teams playing in this year's NFL Pro Bowl game. NFL legends Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders served as the captains and took turns choosing players for each squad.
Take a look at the two teams below and let us know which team you think has the best chance of winning on Sunday.

Don’t miss the NFL Pro Bowl this Sunday at 7:30PM ET on NBC.
St. Louis Rams DE Robert Quinn broke the team's single-season record with 19 sacks in 2013 to earn Pro Bowl honors.
This year's new Pro Bowl format will be completely different. This year voters will vote for a particular amount of players based strictly on position, not depending on what conference they are in. The players will be chosen for each team by this year's Hall of Fame captains, Jerry Rice and Deion "Primetime" Sanders. So, which players will Rice and Sanders pick?
Peyton has had the best season so far among NFL players. Before the Week 8 Sunday games, Peyton leads the league in all major passing categories. Manning definitely deserves to be the first selection in the Pro Bowl Draft.
Charles has been the best running back in the league this year and a MVP candidate. Charles is second in the league in rushing with 898 rushing yards and has picked up over 1,200 yards from scrimmage.
Green has been nothing short of a huge weapon for young QB Andy Dalton. His 619 receiving yards rank third in the league among wrs. Green should be the first WR taken in the Pro Bowl Draft.
McCoy has put together quite a season so far. He currently leads the league in rushing yards and is fitting in perfectly with Chip Kelly's fast-paced offense. The captains should jump at the chance to draft LeSean McCoy.
Robert Mathis thus far this season has been the lead candidate for defensive player of the year. His 11.5 sacks are 1.5 more than anyone else in the league. Robert Mathis will be the first defensive player taken in the Pro Bowl Draft.
After coming off of two straight 5,000 yard passing seasons, Brees is on track to have his 8th consecutive 4,000 yard season. No one should pass up Brees while he's still up on the board.
Either captain shouldn't hesitate to select Brees' favorite target, Jimmy Graham. Graham leads all tight ends by 78 yards with 693 yards. The closest TE to coming to even 620 is Browns' TE Jordan Cameron.
Williams signed a huge contract with Buffalo two years ago, but in his first year he did not live up to expectations. This year, he has improved significantly! His 10.0 sacks lead all DEs. The closest to that mark is St. Louis' Robert Quinn with 7.0.
This is only 8 of the many players Rice and Sanders should select. Who do you think that they will pick? I'd love to hear all about it in the comments!
NFLRUSH Kid Reporter
Rams DE Robert Quinn was named the NFC Defensive Player of the Week for week one.
Quinn had a pair of forced fumbles and three sacks in the Rams victory over the Arizona Cardinals.
