Stafford Snub? Only Johnson reaches Pro Bowl

Matthew Stafford (Jason O. Watson, US Presswire)

Despite having 10 more touchdowns, fewer interceptions, and more wins than his New York Giant counterpart Eli Manning, Lions QB Matthew Stafford didn't crack the league's Pro Bowl roster.

Despite having 10 more touchdowns, fewer interceptions, and more wins than his New York Giant counterpart Eli Manning, Lions QB Matthew Stafford didn't crack the league's Pro Bowl roster.

Manning was named behind Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers and the Saints' Drew Brees.

Stafford is considered a 'third' alternate behind Carolina's Cam Newton and Dallas' Tony Romo.

Detroit defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, widely considered the league's best interior defensive lineman, also won't make the trip to Hawaii.

Wide receiver Calvin Johnson was among the top vote getters and will be the team's lone representative when the game takes place in late January.
