The Skills Showdown is returning after a ten-year hiatus as a sort of precursor for Saturday's AFC-NFC Pro Bowl in Orlando.
The Skills Showdown will also include epic pro bowl dodgeball, a power relay challenge and precision passing. Bengals fans might be particularly interested in watching to see Geno Atkins, Andrew Whitworth, Carlos Dunlap and Andy Dalton play for the AFC team. He participated in somewhat of a relay competition.
Sure, the best National Football League receivers can snatch a ball out of the air and make it look easy, but can they catch one dropped from 200 feet - by a drone?

With Harris soon eliminated, that left Colts wide receiver T.Y. Hilton as the lone AFC representative. Fans of the game know that super stars, like Odell Beckham Jr can catch, but can he recreate that famous one hand catch.
With several quarterbacks showing off their cannon arms and a few receivers and defensive backs waiting to make some impressive catches, the dodgeball game was a real treat for viewers and a true athletic test for the athletes.
For the first year in quite a while, there will be skills competitions to go along with the game.
This was a lot of fun to watch from my viewpoint. "I'm open to new ideas, I'm open to how we do it, but it's not the kind of game that I think we want to continue to have in its current format, based on what we saw last (year)".
