Manning has been voted to 11 Pro Bowls, including five First-Team All-Pro selections. He has thrown for 4,016 yards (67.9 percent pass completion) and has 31 passing touchdowns thus far this season.

The final teams will be announced on December 26. The game will be played on Jan. 27 at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii.
