The NFL will celebrate its brightest stars of today and tomorrow with new Pro Bowl week festivities in 2017 in Orlando.
Culminating with the 2017 Pro Bowl game at Camping World Stadium on Sunday, January 29 and televised live at 7 PM CT on ESPN and ESPN Deportes, Pro Bowl week will celebrate all levels of football -- from youth to high school to the NFL's best.
The 2017 Pro Bowl will feature a return to the traditional AFC vs. NFC game format following three years using a revised, "unconferenced" format. The NFL's best will once again be in the spotlight as 88 players -- 44 from the AFC and 44 from the NFC -- are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches.

Years Played: 1999-Present
Record: 60-36(regular season) 2-2 (playoffs)
First Game: 9/12/99 - Tennessee 36, Cincinnati 35 (65,272)
Highlights: At LP Field, the Tennessee Titans have recorded a 62-38 home record, including an undefeated 9-0 home mark in 1999. Adelphia Coliseum, as the stadium was first named, opened its doors in the national spotlight with a preseason victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Aug. 27, 1999, in which country music star Faith Hill sang the National Anthem. Tennessee opened the regular season with a come-from-behind 36-35 victory over Cincinnati. But the most memorable victory of the season came in a 22-16 Wild Card victory over Buffalo on Jan. 8, 2000. In that game, Kevin Dyson fielded a lateral pass from Frank Wycheck with 16 seconds left and raced 75 yards down the sideline for the winning score. That play, which propelled Tennessee into an AFC Divisional showdown at Indianapolis the following week, was immediately dubbed “The Music City Miracle” and will go down as one of the most memorable moments in NFL history. The Titans won 12 consecutive games to open their new stadium, breaking the NFL record. The Coliseum changed its name to LP Field on June 6, 2006, when the Titans reached a 10-year stadium naming rights agreement with Louisiana-Pacific Corporation.
