This year’s NFL’s all-star game, the Pro Bowl, happened on the last day of January. The event has been around since 1938, when it was still called NFL All-Star Games. Its name changed in 1951 to Pro Bowl and many records have been broken since then. Here are some of the biggest Pro Bowl records of all time.
