The 2024 Pro Bowl Games in Orlando, Florida, have a new set of stars to watch out for. Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts and cornerback Darius Slay have made it to the NFC team, both being first alternates in the Pro Bowl voting. This exciting event has replaced the traditional Pro Bowl, featuring a multi-day competition filled with skill games and intense flag football.
The Pro Bowl Skills Show is set to take place on Thursday, February 1, while the Pro Bowl Games will conclude on Sunday, February 4.
After an impressive season, Hurts has earned his second Pro Bowl title. The 25-year-old made his Pro Bowl debut last season but couldn't attend due to the Eagles' Super Bowl LVII commitments. Hurts was initially the first alternate quarterback for the NFC this season and will now replace San Francisco quarterback Brock Purdy, who is preparing for Super Bowl LVIII on February 12 against Kansas City in Las Vegas.
In 17 regular-season games, Hurts completed 65.4 percent of his passes, covering 3,858 yards and achieving a career-high of 23 touchdowns. He also added 15 rushing touchdowns, setting a new NFL record for the most rushing touchdowns by a quarterback in a single season, a record he shares with Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen. This feat surpasses Cam Newton's record of 14 in 2011.
Leading the NFL with 38 rushing touchdowns over the last two seasons, Hurts ranks third among quarterbacks in rushing yards (2,149).
Establishing team records in total yards (4,463) and total touchdowns (38), Hurts broke multiple franchise records. He finished second in the league in total scores behind Allen (42).
Hurts is one of only three NFL quarterbacks since 1950 to win 27 or more games over 29 starts (Week 15 of 2021 to Week 13 of 2023), joining the ranks of Tom Brady and Jim McMahon.
Joining Hurts and Slay, six other Eagles have been selected to represent the organization at this year's Pro Bowl activities. Wide receiver A.J. Brown, right tackle Lane Johnson, and center Jason Kelce were voted in as starters while left guard Landon Dickerson, linebacker Haason Reddick, and running back D'Andre Swift were voted in as reserves.
