Monday night was the unveiling of the AFC and NFC rosters for the 2021 Pro Bowl and the Chargers’ got themselves two players voted to the annual event.

The first was defensive end Joey Bosa. This is Bosa’s third Pro Bowl nomination of his career (‘17, ’19) and he joins fellow ends Myles Garrett of the Browns and Frank Clark of the Chiefs. Bosa and Garrett were also named the starters for the AFC at their position.

On the season, Joey Bosa has recorded 39 combined tackles, 15 tackles-for-loss (T-7th in NFL), and 7.5 sacks (T-18th) in 12 games with 10 starts.

The second Chargers player to be named to the Pro Bowl is none other than wide receiver Keenan Allen. This selection make it four-straight nominations for The Slayer and this one is as rightfully deserved as the past three.

His 100 catches on the season are good for third in the NFL and his 992 receiving yards are good for 13th. Allen has also recorded eight touchdowns in 2020, which is tied for his career-high set in 2013 while two games remain to be played. Allen is joined by the Chiefs’ Tyreek Hill, the Bills’ Stefon Diggs, and the Titans’ A.J. Brown.
