KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – The Chiefs are sending eight players to the Pro Bowl after going from 2-14 last year to 11-5 this year and the No. 5 seed in the playoffs heading into Sunday’s regular-season finale in San Diego.
The NFL announced the rosters Friday night for the Jan. 26 game at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii.
Kansas City will be represented by running back Jamaal Charles, left tackle Branden Albert, safety Eric Berry, cornerback Brandon Flowers, defensive tackle Dontari Poe, linebackers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali, and punt returner Dexter McCluster.
That’s the highest number of Chiefs going to the Pro Bowl since the 2003 season, when they had nine. The Chiefs started 9-0 that year, just as they did this season, and lost in the divisional round of the playoffs to Indianapolis.
