Voting has officially opened for the 2022 NFL Pro Bowl!

The 2022 NFL Pro Bowl is expected to return in person this season after being held virtually in 2021 due to COVID-19 protocols. The 2021 Pro Bowl, which was set to take place in Las Vegas, was changed to a virtual Madden showdown due to concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The NFL hopes to welcome back both fans and players for the 2022 Pro Bowl, which is set to be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas on Sunday, February 6, 2022 following the end of the 2021 NFL season. The event, usually held at the end of January, will now be held in February after the NFL schedule was expanded to 17 games.

The results of the Pro Bowl vote will be revealed in December, and are determined by a combination of votes by players, coaches and fans, with each group representing one-third of the vote. 

Last season, the Broncos had two players voted to the Pro Bowl: outside linebacker Bradley Chubb and safety Justin Simmons. It was the first Pro Bowl selection for both Chubb and Simmons.

With voting now open, you can vote for your favorite Broncos players online.

Despite a tough loss to Philadelphia on Sunday, two Broncos defenders notched impressive performances vs. the Eagles, according to Pro Football Focus.

Defensive end Dre'Mont Jones recorded both a sack and a tackle for loss in the matchup.

"Dre'Mont Jones earned an elite pass-rush grade after tallying one sack and two pressures on 22 pass-rush snaps," PFF's Miles Ruder wrote. "Jones also played admirably against the run, forcing two defensive stops and two tackles for loss or no gain."

Another bright spot on the Denver defense was Simmons, who intercepted Eagles QB Jalen Hurts and allowed zero completions for a passer rating of 0.0 on the day when he was targeted.

"[Outside of two passing touchdowns], the Broncos' secondary held up well in coverage," Ruder wrote. "Justin Simmons didn't allow a reception and intercepted Hurts."
