Fan voting for the 2015 Pro Bowl has now ended and the Pittsburgh Steelers had two players finish in the top-10 vote-getters.
Running back Le’Veon Bell finished in 6th place overall with 702,782 votes while wide receiver Antonio Brown finished in 8th place with 644,093 votes.
Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey finished second at his position behind Travis Frederick of the Dallas Cowboys.
As far as other Steelers players go, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, linebacker Lawrence Timmons and safety Troy Polamalu all finished fifth in voting at their respective positions.
The Pro Bowl players are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 86 All-Star players who will be selected in the Pro Bowl Draft. Now that the fan voting portion has been completed, players and coaches will now cast their votes on December 19.
The 2015 Pro Bowl players will be revealed exclusively on NFL Network on Tuesday, December 23 at 8:00 PM ET on the “NFL Total Access: Pro Bowl Players Revealed” show. Players will later be assigned to teams through the Pro Bowl Draft during the week leading up to the game, which will also air on NFL Network.
The 2015 Pro Bowl, which will be “unconferenced” for the second consecutive year, will be played on Sunday, January 25, 2015 and televised live on ESPN at 8:00 PM ET from University of Phoenix Stadium in Arizona, site of Super Bowl XLIX.
