  • Cake for Tyreek Hill Kareem Hunt and Travis Kelce – 2018 NFL Pro Bowlers

That recognition began on Tuesday night when the NFL's 2018 Pro Bowl rosters were announced.

The Pro Bowl kicks off Sunday, January 28 in Orlando.

Smith was named as an alternate which softens the blow a little, but it's still baffling that he didn't get in. His athleticism and power make him so useful as a lead blocker by pulling him around the formation and allow him to get out in front of Gurley. He set the Eagles' team record for touchdowns in a season with 33, against just seven interceptions.

Slay, who leads the National Football League with seven interceptions, will be a reserve for the NFC squad.

Sure, Smith went on a cold streak during the middle of the season, but Rivers wasn't so hot at the beginning of the year.

Brown has been selected to his fifth consecutive Pro Bowl and six overall. He has 24 receptions for 220 yards and a touchdown. It probably could've gone either way here. The game will be played in the traditional AFC vs. NFC format.

Facebook and Universal just cut a huge music licensing deal
With those tools in place and this new deal, Facebook is another step closer in its quest to be a destination for high-end video. Initially the partnership will mean that users will be able to upload videos that contain licensed music to the three platforms.

The sixth-year linebacker was the only Panther selected in the Pro Bowl. "We have two games left in the regular season and hopefully a big run in the playoffs".

Defensive End: Joey Bosa, Chargers*; Calais Campbell, Jaguars*; Khalil Mack, Raiders Interior Lineman: Geno Atkins, Bengals*; Jurrell Casey, Titans*; Malik Jackson, Jaguars Outside Linebacker: Von Miller, Broncos*; Jadeveon Clowney, Texans*; Terrell Suggs, Ravens Inside/Middle Linebacker: C.J.

I'm not sure whether I'd call Peters a snub. Still, he's having a great season. His best asset is position flexibility, too, playing both free and strong safety, as well as slot corner.

North Korea Threatens to Arm Its Missiles With Biological Weapons
The report, based off of a source in South Korea, said that it did not have confirmation about whether the tests had been successful.

Butker was selected as an alternate and honestly I don't think he was necessarily snubbed. It was basically a toss up with those three. It's not that he wasn't deserving but he, Steelers kicker Chris Boswell and Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski all have similar numbers.

Apple AirPods sold out: what are the best alternatives?
