The 2024 Pro Bowl Games are here! And believe it or not, the flag football game starts in just an hour.

Yes, it's hard to believe, but we're nearly at the end of the 2023-2024 NFL season. Super Bowl 2024 is just a week away, and that can only mean one thing: it's time for the Pro Bowl. What used to be an exhibition match between the AFC and NFC is now a collection of events that culminate in a fun, entertaining flag football game between the conferences' top players.

Start time — 3 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. PT / 9 p.m. BST / 7 a.m. AEDT (Feb. 5)

The Pro Bowl Games actually started on Thursday (Feb. 1) with a host of skills challenges that showcased the top players in the league in games that are sometimes only tangentially related to football. While these are fun — the NFC currently leads the AFC 12-6 after Thursday's challenges — things really pick up when the teams play in a flag football championship game on Sunday.

The flag football game pits seven players from the AFC against seven players from the NFC. Notably absent will be players for both the San Francisco 49ers and the Kansas City Chiefs who were selected for the Pro Bowl. They won't be there since they have a pretty important game to play next week.

But there are plenty of top players from teams that didn't make the Super Bowl playing at this year's Pro Bowl, including Tua Tagovailoa, Lamar Jackson, CeeDee Lamb, and many others. It's still an exhibition, but it's also an opportunity for the NFL to showcase its top talent without risking injury — and giving fans another week of football, even if there aren't any hard hits.

Plus, you can still gamble even if the game doesn't count. DraftKings has the two conferences dead even, with a $110 bet on either the AFC or NFC winning you $100 if you choose correctly.

If nothing else, the Pro Bowl Games flag football championship is a great way to get yourself ready for Super Bowl week. So read on for more on how to watch the NFL Pro Bowl flag football game in just an hour when it airs at 3 p.m. ET.
