    Indianapolis Colts’ DeForest Buckner (99) celebrates a fumble recovery during overtime of an NFL football game against the Green Bay Packers, Sunday, Nov. 22, 2020, in Indianapolis.

Led by their star quarterbacks, the Seattle Seahawks, Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers had seven players apiece selected to the Pro Bowl.

The Baltimore Ravens also had seven players chosen.

Hawaii players were shut out of the selections, most notably DeForest Buckner of Indianapolis. The Waianae native responded on Twitter by writing “I never was the popular kid.”

Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes joins Buffalo’s Josh Allen and Houston’s Deshaun Watson as the AFC quarterbacks. For the NFC, it’s Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, Seattle’s Russell Wilson and Arizona’s Kyler Murray.

Mahomes and Rodgers are the starters, though there will be no actual game this season because of the COVID-19 pandemic. On Jan. 31, the players will be celebrated during two Pro Bowl-themed shows airing on an ESPN/ABC simulcast, with a virtual Pro Bowl experience within the Madden NFL 21 video game.

Roster selections were determined by votes of players, coaches and fans.
