Not unexpectedly, the 13-2 Patriots lead the way on the AFC's Pro Bowl roster with six players. Surprisingly, however, four of the players are on defense — that on a team that is considered much stronger on offense than on defense.

Baltimore placed five players in the Pro Bowl, four on defense, followed by Indianapolis with four.
