While the Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots meet Sunday with home-field advantage in the playoffs at stake, there are potentially other things at stake, too.
Four of the top 10 Pro Bowl vote-getters will take the field, and their performance can swing the popularity contest for bragging rights. As of Saturday night, Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell led all players in fan voting with 855,539 votes, with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in second with 833,481. Right behind him is Pittsburgh star receiver Antonio Brown with 832,446. Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has elbowed his way into 9th place with 551,058. Injured Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz is in fourth place and the top vote-getter on the NFC side.
