Six New Orleans Saints were voted to the Pro Bowl, the National Football League announced Tuesday evening. QB Drew Brees, RB Mark Ingram, DE Cameron Jordan, RB Alvin Kamara, CB Marshon Lattimore and WR Michael Thomas were all selected to play in the NFL’s All-Star game, which will be held on Sunday, January 28, 2018, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Florida.

In 2017, he has started all 14 games and completed 343-of-478 passes (71.8%) for 3,850 yards with 21 touchdowns and a 104.0 passer rating, ranked first in the league in both passing yardage and touchdown passes. Through 14 games, he is ranked first in the NFL in completion percentage, second in completions, third in passer rating and fourth quarter passer rating (116.7) and fourth in passing yardage.
