The Cowboys ended up with six Pro Bowlers. They are: receiver Miles Austin, tight end Jason Witten, center Andre Gurode, guard Leonard Davis, nose tackle Jay Ratliff and outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware.
Ware, who made his fourth Pro Bowl, is a starter as is Gurode, who made his fourth team.
Austin, who leads the NFC with 1,230 yards and has 11 touchdowns, earned his first Pro Bowl berth as a backup.
Witten will be a backup in his sixth Pro Bowl. He made it over Philadelphia's Brent Celek, who has eight touchdowns, as well as Tony Gonzalez.
Ratliff made his second Pro Bowl as one of three defensive tackles. Davis made his third team.
The game will be played Jan. 31, the week before the Super Bowl, in Miami. The Super Bowl participants will not participate in the all-star game. So if the Cowboys make the Super Bowl, none of their players will play in the game. If they don't, they likely will have more players added the week before the game.
Cornerback Mike Jenkins and tackle Flozell Adams would be possibilities to join the Pro Bowl team as late additions.
