2021 Pro Bowl Voting: Patriots have one player leading at his position


The voting for the 2021 NFL Pro Bowl -- which will be held virtually this season due to the COVID-19 pandemic -- began in mid-November, and the latest round of results was released by the league Thursday. 

The only New England Patriots player leading his position in Pro Bowl voting is center David Andrews. Andrews missed all of the 2019 season due to blood clots, but he's returned for the 2020 campaign and once again is playing at a very high level. 

Who will be the Patriots' QB in 2021? Here are some possibilities

Andrews' excellent performance is among the reasons why the Patriots rank in the top 10 of rushing yards and rushing touchdowns. 

The Patriots, overall, are not having a great season with a 5-6 record entering Week 13, so it's not too surprising that only one of the team's players is leading Pro Bowl voting at his respective position. However, you could make the case that Patriots punter Jake Bailey is very much deserving of Pro Bowl consideration.
