I personally find it a bit odd that the Pro Bowl roster is determined when there is one full week of football left to be played, but never-the-less it is done that way, and today the results were announced.
With Adrian Peterson’s various injuries derailing the second half of his season, Jared Allen is the lone Viking to make the Pro Bowl roster this season.
Jared Allen bested himself this season and enters the final week with a league high 18.5 sacks. Allen also has 61 tackles, a safety, three defended passes, an interception, and four forced fumbles to his name this season. This is his fourth Pro Bowl selection in eight NFL seasons.
It is possible that more Vikings end up playing in the game as alternates, but at this point I can’t think of anyone besides Percy Harvin that may be worthy of being named an alternate.
