Day one will consist of both a precision passing contest and a best catching contest, but that’s not where the fun begins.
There will also be a dodgeball tournament – the first round will be the AFC offense against their defense, as well as the NFC offensive and defensive players. The winners will meet in the final. Four players from each conference will also take their golf clubs for a long-drive competition.
There will also be a «Lightning Round» consisting of three contests in it alone. The first is a water balloon toss, followed by catching punts from a JUGS machine. The final part of the challenge is called «Thrill of the Spill», where players from each conference will aim for targets attached to a bucket that hangs over the opposite conference’s coach: the first team to dump the bucket on the other coach wins.

Aside from the 7-on-7 flag football games on Sunday, the best-catch contest will end on Sunday. There are also two separate skills competitions, similar to the skills competition during NBA All-Star weekend, which will include tire races, block sleds, and other drill-like events. Conference punters and long snappers will also complete in a game of «Kick Tac Toe.»
The NFL announced in September that it would eliminate a Pro Bowl game and instead move to more backyard events.
«The Pro Bowl is something we’ve been looking at for a while, it’s really continuing to evolve,» NFL executive Peter O’Reilly told The Associated Press at the time. «Coming off of last year’s game, we really made the decision based on a lot of internal conversations, getting feedback from GMs and coaches, getting a lot of player feedback. We think there’s a real opportunity to do something completely different here and walk away from the traditional game of football, we decided the goal is to celebrate 88 of the biggest stars in the NFL in a really positive, fun and competitive way.
«The very direct feedback from guys who had been in the Pro Bowl recently was to keep building the week, make sure you have that multi-day element. It was overwhelmingly positive from both the players and the clubs.»
