2013 Pro Bowl rosters: Patriots, Texans dominate AFC

Michael Ivins-USA TODAY Sports

The NFL released the full 2013 Pro Bowl rosters on Wednesday.

The NFL announced the full rosters for the 2013 NFL Pro Bowl on Wednesday, and the AFC is dominated by the Houston Texans and New England Patriots. Widely considered to be the two best teams in the conference, the selections were expected.

New England had seven players named to the Pro Bowl, including Tom Brady, Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski, Logan Mankins, Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo and Matthew Slater. Houston had the most in the conference with eight: Matt Schaub, Arian Foster, Andre Johnson, Duane Brown, Wade Smith, Chris Myers, J.J. Watt, and Johnathan Joseph.

It's also noteworthy that the Kansas City Chiefs have five Pro Bowlers, despite the fact that they only have two wins this season.

For the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers have nine players, including the majority of their offensive line, going to the Pro Bowl. There aren't many surprises for the NFC, with Aaron Rodgers headlining the quarterback class and Adrian Peterson being the top running back.

Of particular note for the NFC: Two rookies made the roster in Minnesota kicker Blair Walsh and Washington quarterback Robert Griffin III.
