The NFL announced the first two members of the 2023 NFC Pro Bowl Games team on Monday night: Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald and Green Bay Packers cornerback Jair Alexander.

The announcement was made in conjunction with the Rams and Packers playing Monday Night Football at Lambeau Field. The rest of the NFC team and the entire AFC team will be drawn on Wednesday.

The NFL announced in September that it would no longer play a regular football game at the Pro Bowl, opting instead for a rebranded series of events that will feature multiple skills competitions in addition to flag football.

The previous format, which dates back to 1951, was under scrutiny for more than a decade as players became increasingly reluctant to submit to the physical blows that occur during standard games.

The week of the Pro Bowl Games will take place in Las Vegas, with the flag football game scheduled for February 5th. Peyton Manning has been named the AFC coach, while his brother Eli Manning is the NFC coach. Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions will be involved in programming and promotion of the event.

Donald, who is making his ninth consecutive Pro Bowl, is inactive for Monday night’s Lambeau game with an ankle injury. Meanwhile, Alexander earned his second Pro Bowl honor. He is tied for No. 5 in the NFL with four interceptions, a career high.
