After a promise from players that the game will be more competitive, the NFL will hold the Pro Bowl in Honolulu next Jan. 27, a week before the Super Bowl.

Commissioner Roger Goodell had made it clear canceling the all-star game was a possibility after this year's 59-41 AFC victory did not meet the standards the league wants.

Following discussions between the league and the NFL Players Association, the NFL announced Wednesday that Aloha Stadium would host the Pro Bowl for the third straight year.

New NFLPA President Domonique Foxworth says the players consider the Pro Bowl "an important tradition" and that they want to ensure that "the best players in the NFL are honored for their achievements on the field."
