Ravens QB Tyler Huntley selected as Pro Bowl replacement despite starting 4 games
Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley is heading to the Pro Bowl despite starting just four games in 2022. Huntley was named as a Pro Bowl replacement for Buffalo Bills QB Josh Allen on Tuesday. Huntley’s inclusion into the Pro Bowl sure is odd given his limited playing time and lack of eye-popping stats. But it’s also not a surprise given the way that alternate voting for the Pro Bowl went in December. The third-year QB’s inclusion in the Pro Bowl festivities comes after he filled in for an injured Lamar Jackson for the second straight season.wftv.com

The Eagles will prove a much tougher test than Minnesota but Hodgins might be up to the challenge of assisting Jones. The Giants blitzed on just 15% of dropbacks against the VikingsLet's continue the theme of Giants' counterpunches. Much like the offensive stat above, this was a steep departure from the Giants' norm, perhaps to an even greater extent. Goedert averaged 10.3 yards per target on screens this season and an absurd 14 yards after the catch per reception.
