Seven Ravens Win Pro Bowl Voting

New, comments

Voting for the 2012 Pro Bowl ended at the conclusion of the recent Monday Night Football game between the victorious San Francisco 49ers and losing Pittsburgh Steelers. A record 100 million votes were cast at NFL.com, and after the dust settled, there were an AFC leading seven players on the Baltimore Ravens who were the top vote-getters at their respective positions. The Green Bay Packers led the NFC and entire league with nine players topping their positions.

The Ravens who led their positions included Ray Lewis (ILB), Terrell Suggs (OLB), Haloti Ngata (DT), Ed Reed (FS), Brendon Ayanbadejo (ST), Vonta Leach (FB) and Michael Oher (T).

Hopefully, Ravens fans will have to miss seeing these guys in the game, which is being played the week between the AFC Championship Game and Super Bowl 46, since the teams in the big game will not be sending players to the Pro Bowl, which will be played in Hawaii on January 29, 2012. You can read more on the 2012 Pro Bowl at NFL.com/ProBowl, and check out the full NFL Press Release after the 'Jump.'

Congrats to our Ravens for earning these top honors!
