The NFL announced Tuesday that voting for the 2021 Pro Bowl is officially underway, and you can vote for Seahawks players here.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the game will look a bit different this year. The NFL and EA Sports will transform the game into a virtual contest in Madden NFL 21, creating a week-long series of matchups with NFL players past and present, celebrities and streamers playing as the official Pro Bowl rosters in the video game. The week will conclude with the 2021 Pro Bowl players facing off in Madden NFL 21.
Last season, the Seahawks sent three players – Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner and Shaquill Griffin – to the Pro Bowl. Through the first nine games of the season, the Seahawks have had a number of players stand out as potential Pro Bowlers.
On offense, Wilson has been dominant since Week 1. He leads the NFL with 28 passing touchdowns and is squarely in the MVP hunt. Two of his receivers – DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett – also have strong cases. With eight touchdowns, Metcalf is just one behind the league lead. Lockett has seven touchdowns of his own, including two games with three scores.
The offensive line has been buoyed by Duane Brown at left tackle and rookie Damien Lewis at right guard. Both have allowed just one sack this season, per Pro Football Focus.
Defensively, it's been Bobby Wagner making plays each and every week. He's currently sixth in the NFL with 87 total tackles, including five games with 10 or more tackles. Jamal Adams, despite playing just five of nine games, is another potential Pro Bowler. The first-year Seahawk leads the team with 5.5 sacks and eight tackles for loss. A healthy second half of the season should only improve his candidacy.
Diving even deeper, the Seahawks have two special teamers who have thrived all year. Kicker Jason Myers hasn't missed a field goal attempt all season, and booted a franchise record 61-yarder Sunday against the Rams. Punter Michael Dickson's 44.4-yard net punting average is third in the NFL and 18 of his 33 punts have been inside the 20 yard line.
You can vote for all of the Seahawks players as often as you want through Dec. 17 by clicking here. Votes can also be cast on Madden NFL 21 or on Twitter (only from Dec. 1 through Dec. 17).
