Notes
  • The 2010 game was the first time ever that the Pro Bowl was held prior to the championship game. It was held the weekend before Super Bowl XLIV.[25] NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said the move was made after looking at alternatives to strengthen the Pro Bowl.[26] The game was also moved up in order to prevent a conflict that would have occurred if the game had taken place on February 13 or 14 (CBS would have rights, and based on the 52nd Grammy Awards, would have moved the game to the Saturday, as they did in 2007), with the game facing against the NBA All-Star Game, Winter Olympics, and Daytona 500.[citation needed]
    • CBS gave up the rights to the 2013 game to NBC.[27]
  • ESPN will have the rights to the Pro Bowl for eight years beginning in 2015. Starting in 2018, the game will be simulcast on broadcast network, ABC, marking the return of the Pro Bowl to ABC, since 2003. [28]
