Pro Bowl teams pit teammate on teammate

Associated Press

PEARL HARBOR, Hawaii (AP) - Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck says he's disappointed he's not teammates with Robert Mathis during this year's Pro Bowl.

But the Colts linebacker says if he gets a shot at Luck while playing for NFL great Jerry Rice, he'll take it.

Luck versus Mathis is just one of several head-to-head matchups made possible by this year's new Pro Bowl format. Arizona wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald could line up against teammate Patrick Peterson. Chicago's wide receiver tandem of Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery might have to face off against cornerback Tim Jennings. And Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith could be sacked by linebacker Tamba Hali or defensive tackle Dontari Poe, or intercepted by safety Eric Berry.

Nearly 30 players have a reasonable chance of facing their NFL teammates on Sunday.
