Three New York Giants were elected to the 2019 Pro Bowl, which will be played on Sunday, Jan. 27, in Camping World Stadium in Orlando.
Three New York Giants, one each from unit (offense, defense, and special teams), were selected to the NFC Pro Bowl team Tuesday evening. Those players representing Big Blue are rookie phenom Saquon Barkley, safety Landon Collins, and kicker Aldrick Rosas.
The three players were elected in voting by fans, players and coaches. Collins and Rosas were chosen as starters and Barkley as a reserve. It’s the third consecutive Pro Bowl selection for Collins and the second game in a row he’ll miss, due to undergoing shoulder surgery on Dec. 12 to repair a partially torn labrum.

Prior to going on IR Collins was and still is leading the team in tackles with 96.
It should come as no surprise that Barkley was voted to the Pro Bowl as he has 12 games this season with at least 100 all-purpose yards. He’s currently third in the NFL in rushing with 1,155 yards and leads the Giants in receptions with 82, he’s scored a total of 14 touchdowns.
Barkley is just 191 all-purpose yards away from 2,000 and is the clear frontrunner to be named Offensive Rookie of the Year.
After a shaky 2017 season, Rosas has been rock solid in 2018. He’s converted 28 out of 29 field goals including a franchise record 57-yard field goal in the Giants Week 13 30-27 overtime victory over the Chicago Bears.

The Giants also had three players selected as alternates. Michael Thomas (special teamer) and Olivier Vernon (outside linebacker) first alternate. Odell Beckham Jr. (wide receiver) is a second alternate.
They will get the opportunity to play in the Pro Bowl if a player (or players) at their position cannot participate in the game.
