Pro Bowl 2023: Pete Davidson and Snoop Dogg to captain All-Star game’s NFC, AFC teams

 

A rap legend and a former “Saturday Night Live” comedian will team up with the Super Bowl-winning Manning brothers to lead the NFL’s 2023 Pro Bowl teams, according to a report.

The Pro Bowl Games in Las Vegas on Feb. 5 have added Snoop Dogg and Pete Davidson as captains for the American Football Conference Team and the National Football Conference Team, respectively. The event will be hosted at Allegiant Stadium.

Snoop Dogg, the 51-year-old rapper from Long Beach, will captain the AFC squad set to be coached by Peyton Manning, who won Super Bowl titles with the Indianapolis Colts and the Denver Broncos.

“I’m comin’ back to the NFL field, but this time, instead of performing, I’m going head-to-head with Pete and competing for the title of The Pro Bowl Games Champion,” Snoop Dogg said, according to People.
