Cowboys Land 7 - Including Dak, CeeDee & Micah - On Pro Bowl Roster

Dallas Cowboys Land 7 - Including Dak Prescott, CeeDee Lamb & Micah Parsons - On Pro Bowl Roster

The Dallas Cowboys have been one of the most impressive teams in the NFL this season, and that is reflected in the fact that they have seven players on the initial Pro Bowl roster.

The players in question are quarterback Dak Prescott, receiver CeeDee Lamb, Guard Zack Martin, linebacker Micah Parsons, cornerback DaRon Bland, kicker Brandon Aubrey and punter Brian Anger.

Bland and Aubrey are making their first Pro Bowl appearances, while the rest are making their return to the event.

After an up-and-down 2022 season, Prescott has bounced back to play some of the best football of his career this season. The veteran quarterback leads the league with 32 passing touchdowns, and has the second-best quarterback rating in the league at 70.5. This is Prescott's third Pro Bowl appearance and first since 2018.

Lamb was a great receiver in his own right in his first three seasons, but the former Oklahoma Sooner has cemented himself as one of the league's best this year. The 2020 first-round pick leads the league with 122 receptions and ranks second with 1,651 yards, both Cowboys single-season records. Lamb earned his third-consecutive Pro Bowl nod.

Always consistent, Martin has now earned his ninth Pro Bowl selection in 10 seasons, becoming just the sixth player in franchise history to reach nine Pro Bowls.

Parsons has been an absolute menace early in his career, and this season is no exception as he has 13 sacks in 16 games. A strong Defensive Player of the Year candidate, Parsons has earned his third Pro Bowl nod in his first three seasons.

Bland hasn't been as hot over the past few weeks, but the second-year corner was on fire earlier in the year. The Fresno State product took the league by storm when he set an NFL record with five interception return touchdowns, and he did it with six games to go. He still leads the league with eight interceptions on the year.

The Cowboys also landed a pair of special-teamers on the roster in Aubrey and Anger. Aubrey has been a monster in his first NFL season, making all 35 of his field goals including nine from 50+ yards away. Meanwhile, Anger is making his second Pro Bowl appearance as he leads the league in average net yards per punt at 45.3.

Former Cowboys great DeMarcus Ware, a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2023, will also serve as the NFC's defensive coordinator.

The Pro Bowl Games will take place in Orlando, Florida from Feb. 1-4, culminating in the flag football game on the final day of the event. Of course, the Cowboys are hoping they won't be there as they want to be playing for the Super Bowl in Las Vegas the next week.
