Miles Austin replaces DeSean Jackson in the Pro Bowl

The NFL playoffs is come down to just two teams as Green Bay Packers and the Pittsburgh Steelers will travel to Arlington, Texas to battle it out in Super Bowl XLV, but there is still just one game left to be played before Super Bowl Sunday.

This weekend some of the best of the best in the NFL will head to Honolulu, Hawaii to take part in a head-to-head showdown between the AFC and NFC. Even though being a Pro Bowler is thought to be something the many players in the NFL are proud of to put on their resume, not many of these big name players actually make it as they are either recovering from injury or playing in the Super Bowl.

Usually, as a Pro bowl approaches many players take the name of the running and the other players get nominated to take their spot. One of the first players to bow out of the Pro bowl was superstar quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots. After the loss to the New York Jets, Brady had to undergo surgery on his foot which was an undisclosed injury.

Ironically enough, former backup Patriots QB Matt Cassel of the Kansas City Chiefs will be his replacement. Another big replacement for this game is Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin who will be replacing Philadelphia Eagles wideout DeSean Jackson.

Even though the Dallas Cowboys had a very disappointing season and missed the playoffs after winning the NFC East division title last season, Miles Austin is without a doubt worthy of replacing DeSean Jackson.

Oakland Raiders corner Nnamdi Asomugha will also miss this game and be replaced by the Denver Broncos Champ Bailey. Make sure to get in early for some great NFL football betting action this weekend.

The 2011 NFL Pro Bowl will be played on Sun. Jan. 30 at 6 p.m. EST.
