That alone makes the game in Honolulu intriguing.
The Pro Bowl doesn't measure up to the Super Bowl in the eyes of most avid NFL fans, but it's often worth watching either way.
The only players participating are the best at what they do. Even if they are playing meaningless football, it's still interesting to see the most-talented players from every NFL team come together on one field for one game.
Peterson led all NFC vote-getters this year, finishing ahead of Aaron Rodgers and dazzling rookie Robert Griffin III.
It's no surprise that Peterson's 1,898 yards and 11 touchdowns earned him the top spot. although Rodgers does have nearly 4,000 yards and 35 touchdowns. Griffin's play in the Washington Redskins playoff run certainly deserves recognition as well.
These three won't be the only guys worth watching in Hawaii on January 27. San Francisco 49ers defensive end Aldon Smith will supply fans with his array of pass-rushing skills, while Calvin Johnson will be on the receiving end of, at least, a few of Rodgers' passes.
The Pro Bowl isn't for everyone, but the talent on the field for the NFC side will be undeniable.
