NFL.com: 2011 NFL Pro Bowl Selections

San Diego Chargers Quarterback Philip Rivers
Rivers had another terrific season for the Chargers and will back up starter Tom Brady for the AFC.

Rivers has passed for 4,397 yards with 30 touchdowns and just 12 interceptions while completing 67% of his passes. A candidate for the league's MVP award, Rivers owns the second-highest quarterback rating in the NFL (103.9).

He accomplished all of this despite having his top offensive weapons miss several games throughout the 2010 season.

Arizona Cardinals Safety Adrian Wilson
The hard-hitting safety earns his fourth selection and will start at strong safety for the NFC. He has tallied 84 tackles, two interceptions, two sacks, and seven passes defended.

Wilson remains one of just 10 players in NFL history with at least 20 interceptions and 20 sacks in their career.
