NBC NATIONAL NEWS — While the city of New Orleans will still host the Super Bowl in January, the Pro Bowl will remain in Hawaii.
After much talk of either moving the game to the Big Easy or canceling it altogether because of the lack of competition, both the NFL and the Players’ Association agreed to keep it in Honolulu.
The game will be televised January 27 on NBC33.
Last year's Pro Bowl was watched by an average of 12.5 million viewers, making it the most watched all-star game of the four major sports.
