Last year's Pro Bowl wasn't exactly the most engaging matchup we've ever seen. In fact, the level of play was so poor, Roger Goodell actually contemplated disbanding the event altogether. The players promised to take this year's game more seriously, though, so we can all get excited once again.
Here's a rundown of what you need to know.
Game time - 7 p.m. ET
Where to watch - NBC
Location - Aloha Stadium, Honolulu
Fitzgerald will suit up for his seventh Pro Bowl appearance after being named an alternate to replace Brandon Marshall. Without a stable quarterback, Fitzgerald's numbers suffered in 2012. He finished with just 71 receptions, his lowest total since 2006, for 798 yards and four touchdowns. Still a fan favorite, everyone will be glad to see him out there for his sixth straight appearance.
Peterson was selected to his second straight Pro Bowl. His kick return game didn't meet 2011's standards, but Peterson posed a tough test in coverage and picked off seven passes in 16 games.
Washington will be attending his first Pro Bowl. The 26-year-old linebacker recorded 134 total tackles and nine sacks in his third pro season.
