Tom Brady headlines seven Patriots who have been named to the 2013 Pro Bowl. Peyton Manning, Arian Foster and Ray Rice also made the cut for the AFC.
With just one week remaining in the 2012 NFL regular season, the rosters for this year's Pro Bowl are out, and seven New England Patriots have been named to the AFC's team.
Of those seven, Gronkowski (tight end), Mankins (guard), Mayo (linebacker) and Wilfork (interior lineman) have been named starters.
Quarterback Brady leads the Patriots, who are 11-4, good for first place in the AFC East. Brady has completed 63 percent of his passes for 4,553 yards and 32 touchdowns to just eight interceptions.
Welker has been his favorite target. The wide receiver has 110 receptions for 1,260 yards and five touchdowns, while Gronkowski has caught 10 touchdown passes.
Other notables on the AFC's Pro Bowl roster include Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, Texans running back Arian Foster and Ravens running back Ray Rice. The complete Pro Bowl roster for both teams can be found here.
The game between the AFC and NFC will take place in Aloha Stadium on Jan. 27.
