Buffalo Bills nab five Pro Bowlers, including Josh Allen’s first trip

The game will be different in 2021, due to COVID-19.

The Buffalo Bills have five Pro Bowl players in 2020, led by quarterback Josh Allen who makes his first run to the all-star game. Allen is joined by wide receiver Stefon Diggs, return specialist Andre Roberts, cornerback Tre’Davious White and linebacker Tremaine Edmunds.

Allen and Diggs are first-time Pro Bowlers this year after putting up great numbers throughout the season. The duo has forged a strong connection early in their relationship, as Diggs leads the NFL in receptions and is ten yards off the lead in receiving yards. For his part, Allen is fourth is passing yards and is second in total touchdowns with 39.

Roberts makes his third straight Pro Bowl; one with the New York Jets and two with the Bills.

It’s the second straight Pro Bowl for Edmunds, who at 22 is just the second player in NFL history with two trips to the Pro Bowl before age 23. Despite being hampered by a shoulder injury this year, he earned the nod.

White, who was an All-Pro last year, makes his second straight trip to the Pro Bowl. He just signed a big contract extension this offseason.

Among the notable snubs for the Bills are punter Corey Bojorquez, who leads the league in average yards per punt and has the longest punt in the league this year, and safety Jordan Poyer. Both led fan voting at their respective positions but couldn’t win enough remaining votes. Safety Micah Hyde also presented a strong case for the Pro Bowl, but ultimately fell short.

Without a physical game this year, these lists are likely to stay final as opposed to years past when alternates were named.
