Six Kansas City Chiefs are headed to the 2019 Pro Bowl, the NFL announced on Tuesday night. They are:

Eric Fisher (offensive tackle) – first nomination

CHIEFS PR: Fisher has started all 14 games this season, allowing only 2.0 sacks in 516 pass attempts.

Dee Ford (linebacker) – first nomination

CHIEFS PR: Ford has started at linebacker in all 14 games this season, registering a career-high 45 tackles (36 solo) and 11.5 sacks (-64.0 yards).

Tyreek Hill (wide receiver) – third nomination

CHIEFS PR: Hill has started in all 14 games this season, recording 78 receptions for 1,304 yards (16.7 avg.) and 11 touchdowns.

Travis Kelce (tight end) – fourth nomination

CHIEFS PR: Kelce has started at tight end in all 14 games this season, tallying 93 catches for 1,220 yards (13.1 avg.) with 10 touchdowns.

Patrick Mahomes (quarterback) – first nomination

CHIEFS PR: Mahomes has started all 14 games this season. He leads the NFL in yards (4,543) and touchdowns (45), and has the second-highest passer rating (114.8).

Anthony Sherman (fullback) – first nomination

CHIEFS PR: Sherman has played in all 14 games this season as a key contributor on offense and special teams.

Mahomes, Hill, Kelce and Sherman were voted starters for the AFC. The obvious snubs for the Chiefs are Chris Jones and right tackle Mitch Schwartz.

With six selections, the Chiefs are tied with the Pittsburgh Steelers for second most. Only the Los Angeles Chargers have more with seven.

Players for the game are determined by the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 88 All-Star players who will be selected to the Pro Bowl.

The game kicks off January 27 at 2:00 p.m. Arrowhead Time in Orlando and will be televised live on ESPN, ESPN Deportes, Disney XD and simulcast on ABC.
