2011 Pro Bowl: Steven Jackson, NFC All-Stars Look To Avenge Narrow Defeat

After last year's loss, in which an injured Steven Jackson did not participate, the 2011 Pro Bowl is a chance for the NFC All-Stars to win their third in four years against the AFC All-Stars. Rosters are once again without this year's Super Bowl participants, which leaves Green Bay Packers Greg Jennings, Chad Clifton, Clay Matthews, Tramon Williams, and Nick Collins in the lurch; the AFC squad loses Maurkice Pouncey, James Harrison, Troy Polamalu, and Brett Keisel from the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Jackson will look to repeat his performance from the 2007 Pro Bowl, in which he scored a late touchdown and led the NFC squad in carries, with seven. He's joined on the NFC squad by one of the last remaining links to the Greatest Show on Turf Rams, London Fletcher, who's made his second consecutive Pro Bowl squad after a long career as a professional alternate.

Jackson, in his third Pro Bowl, will have to compete with fellow first-and-only-string back Michael Turner for carries today. The 2011 Pro Bowl's scheduled to take place on FOX at 6:00 PM CST, from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.
