A week of contests for the 2023 Pro Bowl will conclude on Sunday, February 5, with what’s sure to be highlight for fans of high-scoring affairs: flag football.

It’s a seven-on-seven format featuring offensive skill players. There won’t be any linemen, on either side of the ball, except for a center to snap the ball. Defensive rosters will include linebackers and defensive backs trying to make “tackles” by pulling the flags off their opponents. The game will also include special teams play.

The NFC and AFC will play three flag football games. The first two are worth six points for the winning conference’s total. The team that wins the third game will be named the Pro Bowl Games Champion.

In another twist that’s sure to add to the enjoyment of this year’s Pro Bowl format, the teams will be coached by Eli and Peyton Manning, helming the NFC and AFC squads, respectively.

The flag football games will start at 3 p.m. ET on Sunday, February 5, at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. The games will be broadcast on ABC and ESPN and streamed ESPN+.
