Chiefs’ Charles, Hali, Houston and Poe selected to Pro Bowl
The 2015 NFL Pro Bowl rosters featured four members of the Kansas City Chiefs when they were revealed by the NFL on Tuesday night.
Jamaal Charles, Tamba Hali, Justin Houston and Dontari Poe are All-Stars yet again.
It’s Charles’ fourth selection, and the speedy running back is the Chiefs’ lone offensive representative. Charles has started 14 games this season for Kansas City, recording 979 rushing yards on 193 carries, including nine touchdown runs.
Hali has started all 15 games in 2014, logging six sacks which ranks second on the team. It is also Hali’s fourth Pro Bowl selection.
Houston’s third Pro Bowl invite was fairly predictable, as the hard-hitting outside linebacker owns an NFL-best 18 sacks to his name.
Poe hasn’t missed a start at defensive tackle, posting 43 tackles, including three for loss, five sacks and seven QB pressures in his third season with the Chiefs, and now second as a Pro Bowler.
The Pro Bowl will be played at University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., on Sunday, Jan. 25. This year’s game features the new format adopted in 2014. The familiar AFC vs. NFC matchup that existed from 1971-2013 will no longer be in place. Instead, players were selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players. Players will be assigned to teams during the 2015 Pro Bowl Draft on NFL Network on Jan. 21 at 7 p.m. CT.
