Led by offensive standouts Antonio Brown and Le'Veon Bell, the respective NFL leaders in receiving and rushing, the Steelers had a league-high eight selections for the 2018 Pro Bowl, which were announced Tuesday.
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, injured linebacker Ryan Shazier, kicker Chris Boswell and offensive linemen Alejandro Villanueva, guard David DeCastro and center Maurkice Pouncey filled out the roster for Pittsburgh, which is tied with the Patriots for the AFC's best record at 11-3.
Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who leads the NFL with 33 touchdown passes but is done for the season due to a torn ACL, was joined by tight end Zach Ertz, defensive lineman Fletcher Cox, strong safety Malcolm Jenkins and offensive linemen Lane Johnson and Brandon Brooks among Philadelphia's contingent.
Other notable selections were Cardinals wideout Larry Fitzgerald, who matched Brees with his 11th Pro Bowl berth, and Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers and Baltimore Ravens Terrell Suggs, who each earned their seventh honor.
The Pro Bowl will be played on Jan. 28 -- one week before Super Bowl LII -- in Orlando, Fla.
