< 2012 Pro Bowl 2014  >

The 2013 Pro Bowl was the NFL's sixty-third[1] annual all-star game which featured players from the 2012 season. It took place at 2:30 pm Hawaii–Aleutian Time (UTC−10:00; 7:30 pm Eastern Time) on Sunday, January 27, 2013 at the Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The game was televised nationally by NBC in place of CBS. The game was delayed for 30 minutes due to flash flood warnings.[2]

John Fox of the AFC West Denver Broncos led the AFC "home team" against a "visiting" NFC team that was coached by the Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy of the NFC North. These coaches were selected for coaching the highest seeded team to not qualify for their respective Conference Championship Games, which has been the convention since the 2009 Pro Bowl. Ed Hochuli was the game referee.[3]

Players on the winning team (NFC) each earned $50,000, while players on the losing team (AFC) earned $25,000.[4]

The Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers had the most Pro Bowl selections with nine. The Kansas City Chiefs, despite only winning two games, had six selections. Six teams, the Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams, Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, and San Diego Chargers, had no selections. The three rookie quarterbacks (Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Russell Wilson) were selected, which is the most in Pro Bowl history.[5]

The game was televised nationally by NBC for the second year in a row after Super Bowl XLVII broadcaster CBS, which was originally had the rights to air the game, declined to carry it (even though CBS was using the game to film an episode of Hawaii Five-0 set around the game that aired three weeks later). This was the second of three consecutive years that NBC carried the game. This means that, despite having the rights to broadcast three Pro Bowls since ESPN lost them in 2006, due to lack of viewers CBS has only broadcast one Pro Bowl: in 2007.[26] NBC will also broadcast the 2014 game as Super Bowl broadcaster Fox had declined to carry the game.
