Chiefs star quarterback Patrick Mahomes and Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers highlight the 2021 AFC and NFC Pro Bowl rosters, respectively, which were both released Monday evening.

Mahomes led all players in balloting for the 2021 Pro Bowl, followed by Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Titans running back Derrick Henry, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce and the aforementioned Rodgers.

The roster selections are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players. 

The Seahawks, Chiefs, Packers and Ravens each had seven players selected to the Pro Bowl.

This year's crop of players received the acknowledgment in-name-only, as the literal Pro Bowl Game will not take place due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The Pro Bowl was originally slated to be played in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium on Jan. 31. Instead, the 2022 Pro Bowl will be awarded to Las Vegas.

According to NFL Network, in lieu of an actual contest, the league is working with EA Sports to create a series of virtual programming, including creating a virtual Pro Bowl game with 2021 Pro Bowl players playing within Madden NFL 21.

Below are this year's rosters:
