Tonight, Pro Bowl weekend officially kicks off with the annual Skills Competition between the AFC and NFC. Many, including myself, find this to be more entertaining than the actual Pro Bowl game itself and this year, that’s good news for Ravens fans.
The dynamic duo of @Lj_era8 and @Mandrews_81 take on the Pro Bowl Skills Showdown tonight❗️— Baltimore Ravens (@Ravens) January 23, 2020

Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews will both be representing the AFC, joining an offensive group that includes Deshaun Watson, Nick Chubb, Jarvis Landry and Quenton Nelson.
You can catch Jackson and Andrews in the following segments —
“Best Hands”: A quarterback-receiver duo challenge in which a series of different passes have to be completed in order for the receiver to advance to the next stage. Different types of catches in the event include one-handed, over the shoulder and vertical, among others.
“Precision Passing”: The two quarterbacks from each conference and one non-quarterback attempt to hit as many designated targets as possible within one minute.
“Thread the Needle”: Participating quarterbacks attempt to complete passes through targets while defensive backs are tasked with defending them. This year, the NFC’s defensive backs in this Skills Competition are Darius Slay and Eddie Jackson.
Oh, and of course . . . dodgeball.
Jackson and Andrews have a strong chemistry and rapport, which was on display all season long. Although this is a different setting, they figure to represent the AFC well tonight and help their conference try to win the Skills Competition.
Be sure to tune in at 9 p.m. ET and catch all your other favorite Ravens players and coaches in the Pro Bowl game on Sunday!
