2011 Pro Bowl Rosters: Dwight Freeney And Robert Mathis Bookend AFC Defense

Indianapolis Colts defensive ends Dwight Freeney and Robert Mathis are both starting on the AFC’s 2011 Pro Bowl defense, making Indy the only team to feature two starters at the same position and the only team with two starting linemen on the same side of the ball. Half of the Colts four Pro Bowlers play defense. Interesting to me, at least.

The Baltimore Ravens dominate the AFC’s defensive and special teams lineups, because of course they do. The same guys who make it every year — Ray Lewis, Ed Reed, Terrell Suggs — make the cut, along with Haloti Ngata and Billy Cundiff. The New England Patriots feature the second-most-represented defense, with four.

The Tennessee Titans and Oakland Raiders join the Ravens in sending exclusively defensive and special teams players to the Pro Bowl.
