Where NFC West ranks in Pro Bowl votes

12/8/2010

The St. Louis Rams lead the NFC West, but they joined the Carolina Panthers as the only NFL teams without a player in the top five at his position in updated fan balloting for the Pro Bowl.

Not even Steven Jackson cracked the list, according to figures the NFL released Tuesday. Fan balloting continues through Dec. 20. Players and coaches vote Dec. 22-23.

The chart breaks down totals by position and division. NFC West teams produced a league-low 11 players among the top five in fan balloting at their positions.

Seven NFL teams produced at least 11 players among the top five at their positions: Pittsburgh 17, Baltimore 13, Minnesota 12, New York (Jets) 11, New York (Giants) 11, Philadelphia 11 and Green bay 11. New England had 10.
