Pro Bowl to Feauture Plenty of Offense, New Faces
HONOLULU (AP) -- Tony Gonzalez, Ray Lewis and Champ Bailey know what to expect. But the new faces at the Pro Bowl aren't so sure and are curious how intense they should play in Sunday's all-star game.

Six rookies are among the first-timers, including quarterbacks Cam Newton of the Carolina Panthers and Andy Dalton of the Cincinnati Bengals, who are replacing Super Bowl quarterbacks Eli Manning and Tom Brady.

Their selection makes this Pro Bowl the first time that will feature two rookie quarterbacks.

In a game known to highlight offense, the NFC will have two of the game's most prolific quarterbacks. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers will start for the NFC and will be backed up by Saints quarterback Drew Brees.
