In the 2021 NFL season the Indianapolis Colts had the most players (7) selected to the Pro Bowl (no other team had 7 Pro Bowl players), yet they missed the playoffs. Has this ever happened?

1 Answer 1


Did an NFL team with the outright most Pro Bowlers miss the playoff before 2021?

Yes. Edit - missed the word "outright."

The Steelers had 8 pro bowlers but missed the playoffs during the 2018 season.

  • Actually with the 7 team per conference playoffs that Steelers team would have made the postseason, but the Colts managed to miss even the extended field... Jan 18, 2022 at 17:08
