For the first time in more than four months, this weekend won't feature an NFL game that has an impact on the standings, as the only contest on the schedule is the 2013 Pro Bowl from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu. 

While no points will be on the line, what this game does offer is the last chance to see the best of the NFL in action before the offseason begins a week from Monday.

It won't be hard-hitting, but it's a safe bet to be an explosive high-scoring affair between two rosters stocked with big names and signature players from all over the league.

Here's all the information you need to know for today's matchup.


Where: Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii

When: Sunday, Jan. 27 at 7 p.m. ET

Watch: NBC

Live Streaming:  NBC Sports


Heading into the game, as has been the case many times in the past, both teams will be without a number of the superstars originally named to the team because of either injury or Super Bowl obligations, as Robert Griffin III, Ray Rice, Frank Gore, Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers and a handful of others will all be absent.

But if history's told us anything about the Pro Bowl, the 2013 edition is assured to be entertaining, because with so much talent on one field, anything (besides a helmet-to-helmet hit) is possible.

Last year, both the NFC and AFC defenses got burned all day, as the game featured 100 points, 14 touchdowns and just one field goal, ending in a 59-41 AFC victory.

Here's a look at the highlights from last year's edition of the sport's most star-studded contest.

Tonight, the best of both conferences will attempt to put even more points on the board than last year, and in doing so, forget for at least a little while that they won't be playing in next weekend' Super Bowl.

Tune in to watch the most open-ended brand of football you'll ever see, because it's sure to produce more offensive flair than the upcoming matchup between Jim and John Harbaugh and their respective clubs.
