NFC South programming notes
By Pat Yasinskas
I’ll be making my way to New Orleans later on Sunday to get into position for Super Bowl week.
The NFC South obviously doesn’t have a team in the game, but there will be stories related to the division throughout the week and I also will be helping out with our Super Bowl coverage.
But let’s not forget that the season isn’t completely over for a handful of NFC South players. The Pro Bowl will be played at 7 p.m. ET Sunday.
Atlanta will be represented by receiver Julio Jones and safeties William Moore and Thomas DeCoud. Quarterback Matt Ryan and tight end Tony Gonzalez pulled out due to injuries. New Orleans will be represented by quarterback Drew Brees, guard Jahri Evans and punter Thomas Morstead.
Tampa Bay’s representatives are running back Doug Martin, receiver Vincent Jackson and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy. Carolina did not have a player selected to the Pro Bowl.
