After not having a player voted for the Pro Bowl the past two seasons, the New Orleans Saints landed six selections for the NFL's annual all-star game. In the process, rookie running back Alvin Kamara tallied 89 yards from scrimmage on 18 touches and scored his fifth receiving touchdown of the year.

The six players will play a vital role on Sunday at high noon when the Saints entertain the Atlanta Falcons in a crucial NFC South Division game.

No running back duo in the history of the National Football League has had two backs on the same team top 1500 yards from scrimmage, but the two are in line to do that this season. The Pro Bowl will be played in Orlando this season on January 28, the week before the Super Bowl. The Saints had 7 Pro Bowl selections in 2009, the season they won the Super Bowl.

New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees. However, his 84 targets rank second on the team (behind Michael Thomas). But, opposing teams do have plenty to worry about when it comes to the Saints in the playoffs. He has seven less catches than the current catch leader, Antonio Brown, and is the NFC's third-leading receiver.

It's the second Pro Bowl for Ingram, while Kamara earns a spot on the team in his rookie year, and he wasn't the only Saints rookie to make the cut. Even though Jordan hasn't recorded a sack since his two-sack performance against the Los Angeles Rams three weeks ago, he is still making things happen and is encouraging his fellow teammates to do the same. He's also the youngest Saints player to make the Pro Bowl.

Defensive end Cam Jordan earns his 3rd Pro Bowl bid. Lattimore is continuing his strong push for Defensive Rookie of the Year honors and had half of his interceptions in the Saints' last two games.

The 2018 Pro Bowl will broadcast on ESPN and be simulcasted on ABC.
