Brett Favre was among eight Minnesota Vikings and Peyton Manning was one of six Indianapolis Colts picked for the NFL Pro Bowl on Tuesday.
It will be Favre's 11th Pro Bowl and the 10th for Manning. No other quarterbacks have been to 10 all-star games.
Favre will be a backup to New Orleans' Drew Brees, the NFL's top-rated passer. The other NFC quarterback will be Aaron Rodgers, who replaced Favre in Green Bay last year.
Tennessee running back Chris Johnson, the league's leading rusher, also made the AFC team, along with NFL receptions leader Wes Welker of New England. Manning will be backed up as AFC quarterback by New England's Tom Brady and San Diego's Philip Rivers.
All six of the quarterbacks made the playoffs and, of course, would prefer to be playing in the Super Bowl on Feb. 7 in Miami. The Pro Bowl has been moved to the preceding Sunday at Dolphin Stadium, and no Super Bowl participants will play in the all-star game.
Vikings running back Adrian Peterson, the league's top scorer among non-kickers, will be in the NFC backfield. The other Vikings who made it: Wide receiver Sidney Rice, defensive end Jared Allen, guard Steve Hutchinson, defensive tackle Kevin Williams, special teamer Heath Farwell and tackle Bryant McKinnie.
The other Colts on the AFC roster: Tight end Dallas Clark, defensive ends Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis, wide receiver Reggie Wayne and center Jeff Saturday.
Two rookies made the AFC team, Houston linebacker Brian Cushing and Buffalo safety Jairus Byrd, who was on injured reserve. Washington linebacker Brian Orakpo was the lone rookie on the NFC squad.
