Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, wide receiver Stefon Diggs, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds, cornerback Tre'Davious White, and punt and kick returner Andre Roberts were all named to the AFC's initial Pro Bowl roster for the 2020 season.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is no actual Pro Bowl game this year. Instead, there will be a week-long virtual event with celebrities, NFL legends, current players, and streamers playing as the Pro Bowl rosters on the Madden NFL 21 video game. Therefore, players on the Super Bowl teams could still take part.
Roster selections are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 players selected.
The Bills, as a team, had the fifth-most overall fan votes in Pro Bowl voting, behind the Pittsburgh Steelers, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, and Kansas City Chiefs.
Diggs, Roberts and safety Jordan Poyer all led the AFC in fan voting at their respective positions. Poyer, however, was the only one of those who failed to make the roster, despite being fifth in solo tackles and ninth in total tackles in the entire NFL.
Allen is one of four quarterbacks selected to the Pro Bowl who are all under the age of 26. The others in this group include Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, and Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.
