Not only did Peyton Manning make his triumph return to the NFL by leading the Denver Broncos to a No. 1 seed in the playoffs, but now he's leading Team AFC into the Pro Bowl.
Manning is one of five Broncos set to represent the AFC Sunday in the 63rd annual NFL Pro Bowl. Manning really is taking a leadership role, as he's told his teammates to take this game seriously and play hard. The veteran said Tuesday that the play in the last two Pro Bowls has been "unacceptable."
Also joining Manning in Hawaii will be wide receiver Demaryius Thomas, guard Zane Beadles, defensive end Elvis Dumervil and cornerback Champ Bailey. Outside linebacker Von Miller and tackle Ryan Clady were selected to play in the game, but will not due to injury concerns.
Here are the rosters for both teams:
x-denotes out because of injury
y-denotes replacement for injured or Super Bowl player
z-will not play; Super Bowl participant
