The 2020 Pro Bowl was the National Football League's all-star game for the 2019 NFL season. It was played on January 26, 2020, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, and was televised nationally by ESPN, while being simulcast on ABC and Disney XD.

Fan voting began on November 12, 2019, and ended on December 12, 2019.[2] The initial roster was released on December 17, 2019. The Baltimore Ravens tied an NFL record (set by the 2007 Dallas Cowboys) by having 13 players selected to the game. The coaching staff for the AFC was led by John Harbaugh of the Baltimore Ravens, and for the NFC by Pete Carroll of the Seattle Seahawks.[3] The AFC won the game, 38-33.

Background

The NFL's three-year contract with Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida, expired after the 2019 game. The league explored alternative sites, including hosting the game in Miami a week after the Super Bowl.[4] In August 2019, the NFL decided to keep the game in Orlando for an additional year.[5]

Rule changes

As in previous years, some rules for the Pro Bowl were different than during the regular season. Some of the rules used in this game were:[6]

  • After a score, there was no kickoff, as in previous years' Pro Bowls. The scoring team had two options:
    • Give the opposing team the ball at the opposing team's own 25-yard line (equivalent to a touchback), or
    • Run one play from the scoring team's 25-yard line, in lieu of an onside kick. If the scoring team gains at least 15 yards it retains possession and is awarded a first down; otherwise, the other team takes over at the dead ball spot. In essence, it is a 4th-and-15 play from a team's own 25-yard line.
      • The "onside kick" option was exercised by the NFC in the 4th quarter, resulting in QB Kirk Cousins throwing an interception to Earl Thomas.
  • False start penalties on receivers flexed to the line of scrimmage were relaxed. A receiver could flinch or lift one foot off the ground without penalty.

Broadcasting

The game was televised nationally by ESPN, while being simulcast on ABC and Disney XD, and in Spanish by ESPN Deportes.[11]

Early in the first quarter, an ABC News special report (simulcast on ESPN, with Disney XD continuing with game coverage) interrupted the game, confirming the developing story of NBA star Kobe Bryant's death; before the game, NFC players who learned of his death conducted a prayer led by Wilson, while various on-field tributes were made during the game.[12] With coverage of Bryant's death becoming a part of the game coverage, it was decided to end the Disney XD simulcast with nine minutes remaining in the second quarter and switch to a marathon of Big City Greens.[13]
