The NFL Pro Bowl got a bit of a shake-up last year when it stopped being a regular game of football played between the best players from the AFC and NFC. Last year was the first time that a game of flag football was held between the two teams instead.
In 2017, the Pro Bowl added a variety of skills competitions and that has continued to this day. Some of the skills competitions include passing contests and even dodgeball games.

Who participates in the Pro Bowl?
Fans vote on who they think the best players in the NFL are, which has always given the Pro Bowl a bad reputation since it's mostly viewed as a popularity contest. Players tend to opt out of the Pro Bowl frequently and it ends up being a lot of alternates participating instead.
It's also worth noting that players whose teams make the Super Bowl are not eligible to partake in the Pro Bowl since it's held the week before the Super Bowl.
