NEW YORK — The AFC West champion Denver Broncos led the NFL with nine players selected for the Pro Bowl on Tuesday.

Quarterback Peyton Manning was picked for the 14th time. Joining Manning from the Broncos will be Ryan Clady, Chris Harris, Von Miller, Aqib Talib, Demaryius Thomas, Julius Thomas, T.J. Ward and DeMarcus Ware. Denver also led the league with five defensive players selected.

The NFC East champion Dallas Cowboys were second with six selections for the Jan. 25 game in Glendale, Arizona, site of the Super Bowl.

Tony Romo will be going for the fourth time. Dez Bryant, Travis Frederick, Zack Martin, DeMarco Murray and Tyron Smith were also honored.

Dallas led the NFL with six offensive players chosen.

The Patriots had five players selected: QB Tom Brady (10th selection), tight end Rob Gronkowski, kicker Stephen Gostkowski, cornerback Darrelle Revis and Matthew Slater on special teams.

Other notable players selected included Super Bowl-winning quarterbacks: Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers and Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger.

Among the players earning first selections are wide receivers T.Y. Hilton of the Colts and Jordy Nelson of the Packers; Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell; and Eagles special teams star Darren Sproles.

Martin, Aaron Donald of St. Louis and C.J. Mosley of Baltimore were the rookies selected.

Arian Foster was one of two Houston Texans honored, along with defensive end J.J. Watt.

The Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks were one of six teams with five players. Not enough, according to one of their stars.

“It’s kind of frustrating because you sometimes feel like your teammates are getting punished for being on a good team,” defensive back Richard Sherman said.

“Your linebackers are getting punished for not having a D-line that allows them to make 130, 140 tackles. Your D-line is being punished because everybody is not going to get 10 sacks or one guy is not going to get 14, 15 sacks – that’s difficult to get on a team like this. You just feel for guys.”

Among the players not selected were Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, Packers running back Eddie Lacy and Giants rookie receiver Odell Beckham Jr., who has 1,120 yards.

For the second consecutive season, players will be selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players.

Hall of Famers Cris Carter and Michael Irvin will serve as alumni team captains for their Pro Bowl teams.

RAIDERS: QB Derek Carr was sent home to rest after he showed up feeling ill.

Carr did not practice and interim coach Tony Sparano said he was hopeful Carr will be back Wednesday.

BEARS: Chicago Bears placed defensive end Willie Young on injured reserve because of a torn left Achilles tendon and signed defensive end Austen Lane.

LIONS: Center Dominic Raiola lost his appeal of a one-game suspension for stepping on Chicago Bears defensive tackle Ego Ferguson.

Appeals officer Derrick Brooks, the Hall of Fame linebacker appointed by the NFL and the players’ union, upheld the suspension.

BROWNS: Quarterback Brian Hoyer is not practicing because of a sore shoulder, raising the likelihood rookie Connor Shaw will start the season finale at Baltimore.

Shaw took the initial snaps in practice followed by veteran Tyler Thigpen, who was signed earlier in the day as a backup.

SCHEDULE: The division-deciding games at Green Bay and Atlanta will be played late Sunday afternoon.

The NFL moved the Lions-Packers game for the NFC North to 4:25 p.m. It also put the Panthers-Falcons game in that time slot, but switched networks for that showdown for the NFC South crown to CBS. Detroit-Green Bay will be on Fox.

The prime-time game is Cincinnati at Pittsburgh to decide the AFC North.

Jacksonville at Houston has been moved from late afternoon to 1 p.m. for the final day of the regular season.
