The rosters have been finalized and the NFL’s new experimental Pro Bowl is set to kick-off on Sunday, with Team Jerry Rice versus Team Deion Sanders in Hawaii.

The two Hall of Famers made their top choices in Wednesday night’s fantasy style draft, Sanders chose Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck with his top pick and followed up with Carolina’s versatile passer Cam Newton.

With New Orleans Drew Brees already named him his captain, Rice chose Saints tight end Jimmy Graham with his top pick and then took NFL leading rusher and Philadelphia Eagle LeSean McCoy.

For over three hours, Rice and Sanders mixed and matched 60 of the NFL’s best players from both conferences, as the league ditched the traditional format that originally pitted the NFC against the AFC.

Commissioner Roger Goodell originally threatened to cancel the NFL’s all-star game after criticism over lackluster play and poor TV ratings, but the league decided to spice up the competition and perhaps appeal to fantasy football devotees.

The game kicks-off on Sunday with TV coverage provided by NBC beginning at 7:30 p.m. ET.
