The showdown, held Jan. 26 in Orlando (5 p.m. MT, ESPN) ahead of the Pro Bowl, pits players from the AFC and NFC in a series of competitions, including the "Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball." Among the others: a "Power Relay Challenge," with four team members competing in a timed relay race; "Precision Passing," in which two players from each team try to hit moving targets; and "Best Hands," where quarterback-receiver duos from each team try to complete as many passes in an allotted time.*

Lynch, the 6-foot-7 quarterback general manager John Elway traded up to nab at No. 26 in last year's draft, had just begun to feel comfortable with Kubiak's complex offense that required six-inch binders to explain in full. While he may not have to start completely anew, more changes are all but guaranteed.
