The Saints’ quarterback will make his second career Pro Bowl.

If Winston throws for over 3,000 yards and 20 touchdowns while only throwing less than 15 interceptions (which we will look at next), then he has a good shot of making the Pro Bowl. He might not be the NFC’s starter, but he should at least be a backup or an alternate.

The biggest problem with this expectation is the NFC has some pretty talented quarterbacks include Packers’ Aaron Rodgers, Buccaneers’ Tom Brady, Seahawks’ Russell Wilson, Cardinals’ Kyler Murray, and Cowboys’ Dak Prescott.

When you take into consideration the talent in the NFC, you can see that Winston has his work cut out for him. However, I think that it can happen as an alternate. I anticipate most of them have similar if not better seasons than Winston.

Most Pro Bowls though see several alternates due to players playing in the Super Bowl as well as injuries. One of those quarterbacks, if not Winston, will represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. If it is not Winston, he will be the first alternate at the very least.
