With wins by the Vikings and Saints this weekend, at least one of Drew Brees or Brett Favre will be going to the superbowl. Both were pro bowlers this year, and since that game is held the week before the Superbowl this year, one won't be playing and the first alternate will be named to the team to play in his place.
The first alternate is Donovan McNabb. So unless he declines the invitation, this will be McNabb's sixth pro bowl.
Sheldon Brown, who is a second alternate, also has a shot to be named to the team after Arizona CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie may have torn knee ligaments in his team's loss over the weekend.
