Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers Named Starters For Jan. 29 Pro Bowl In Honolulu

There's been speculation all year long that Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers could meet up in a head-to-head showdown at the end of this season. Now, it's been confirmed.

No, not that one.

Brady and Rodgers were named on Tuesday night as starting quarterbacks for the annual Pro Bowl, slated to be held on Jan. 29 in Honolulu. This marks the seventh selection for Brady and the second for Rodgers. The two superstars will headline their respective conferences in the 66th annual all-star exhibition.

This marks the third consecutive season, however, that the Pro Bowl has been held the week before the Super Bowl and not the week after. This means both conference champion quarterbacks will be held out of the game, so if either Brady's New England Patriots or Rodgers' Green Bay Packers should qualify for the big game in Indianapolis, the QBs' backups will start instead. Ben Roethlisberger and Philip Rivers were named backup quarterbacks for the AFC, while Drew Brees and Eli Manning got the nods for the NFC squad.

The Patriots led the AFC with eight selections for the Pro Bowl; the 49ers will send eight of their own for the NFC, most notably running back Frank Gore.
