KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Kansas City Chiefs tied for the second most Pro Bowl selections.

On Tuesday night, six Chiefs were selected to play in the all-star game January 27th in Orlando.

Here are the Chiefs selections:

  • Quarterback: Patrick Mahomes (first selection)
  • Wide receiver: Tyreek Hill (third selection)
  • Tackle: Eric Fisher (first selection)
  • Tight End: Travis Kelce (fourth selection)
  • Fullback: Anthony Sherman (first selection)
  • Outside linebacker: Dee Ford (first selection)

The biggest snub seems to be defensive end Chris Jones. So far this season, Jones has recorded 14 sacks and 37 tackles. His 14 sacks are third in the AFC. Von Miller and J.J. Watt both have 14.5 sacks. They were both selected to the Pro Bowl.

Pro Bowlers are determined by fans, coaches and players. Each group's vote counts towards one-third of the final vote totals.
