The National Football League announced on Tuesday that six members of the Kansas City Chiefs have been selected to participate in the 2020 NFL Pro Bowl. The below players have earned a spot on the AFC's Pro Bowl roster:

- Tyreek Hill (Wide Receiver) – 4th Nomination
- Chris Jones (Defensive Tackle) – 1st Nomination
- Travis Kelce (Tight End) – 5th Nomination

Players for the game are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group's vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 all-star players who were selected to the Pro Bowl. The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its All-Star teams.
The 2020 Pro Bowl kicks off on Jan. 26 at 2:00 PM CT and will be televised live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes and simulcast on ABC and Disney XD – the third time the game will be available on both broadcast and cable networks. For the fourth-consecutive year, Pro Bowl Week festivities will take place at ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World Resort and across the Orlando area, bringing free experiences and activities to fans as well as an extraordinary number of events focused on commemorating all levels of football – from youth, to high school, to the NFL's best. Some of the Pro Bowl Week events include: Pro Bowl Practices, Pro Bowl Skills Showdown, NFL FLAG Championships and Pro Bowl Experience. Additionally, NFL Pro Bowl players will give back to the local Orlando community by participating in the Pro Bowl Community Huddle as part of the NFL Huddle for 100. More information about all of the events taking place during Pro Bowl Week is available at ProBowl.com.
