The Pittsburgh Steelers led all teams with a league-topping eight selections for the 2018 Pro Bowl, including the seriously injured linebacker Ryan Shazier.

New Orleans Saints and Philadelphia Eagles (including quarterback Carson Wentz) tied for the NFC lead with six selections. The Saints' backs Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram were both selected. 

It's the first time two running backs (by position definition) have made the same team from the same franchise.

The last pair of teammates to make the Pro Bowl with 100-plus rushing attempts was the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Warrick Dunn and Mike Alstott in 1997 and 2000 -- but Alstott was selected as a fullback both times.
