FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – New England Patriots linebacker Matthew Judon has been selected to represent the New England Patriots in the 2023 NFL Pro Bowl. The players from each conference will compete in a series of exciting Pro Bowl Skills competitions throughout the week and the first-ever AFC vs. NFC Flag football game on Sunday, Feb. 5, 2023 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
Judon is headed to his fourth consecutive Pro Bowl and second straight with the Patriots. He has a career-high 14 1/2 sacks this season, becoming the fourth New England Patriots player with back-to-back 10-plus sack totals after reaching 12 1/2 sacks in his first season with the Patriots in 2021.
