Pro Bowl 2012: TV Schedule & Complete Rosters

Planning to watch the Pro Bowl? Find out when & where it's showing and which players are going to be there.

Everyone's favorite game, all-time, in the history or sports, ever, the NFL Pro Bowl, will take place Sunday, January 29th at 4:00pm PST so make sure you plan to tune in. The game will be televised on NBC, live, and if you weren't already excited about watching the game, the NFL has annouced that players will be allowed to tweet from the sidelines (in a designated area, of course) adding intrigue and drama to what's already the greatest show on earth. Can life get better??!

Now, in all seriousness, for San Francisco/Bay Area fans, this game is actually worth watching! Why? Because there are a grip of Raiders and 49ers playing in the game, and there must be something in the water round these parts because pretty much every player on San Francisco and Oakland's respective special teams - punters Shane Lechler and Andy Lee, placekickers Sebastian Janikowski and David Akers, and longsnappers Jon Condo and Brian Jennings - are representing their respective conferences in the game in an All-Bay-Area Special Team-off. (Check out an interview with 49er longsnapper Brian Jennings here).

In addition to an overly special Special Teams presence in Hawaii, the 49ers are represented by Dashon Goldson, Carlos Rogers, Patrick Willis, Justin Smith, Joe Staley, and Frank Gore on the Pro Bowl roster - though Gore, Rogers, and Goldson all bowed out with injuries and won't play, and the Raiders are represented by Richard Seymour.

Below, see the complete and official rosters for both conferences, as shown on NFL.com.
