GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Seven Green Bay Packers were named Tuesday night to the Pro Bowl.

That's the most for the Pack since 1971, when the NFC first started playing the AFC.

Aaron Rodgers was the top vote-getter by the fans, and he was chosen as the NFC's starting quarterback.

Fullback John Kuhn, corner Charles Woodson, and linebacker Clay Matthews were also named as starters.

Nose tackle B-J Raji, receiver Greg Jennings, and center Scott Wells were named as NFC backups.

The Packers and Baltimore had the second-highest number of Pro Bowl selections. San Francisco and New England each had one more, with 8.

This is the first time Rodgers was chosen as a starter, even though he opened the 2009 Pro Bowl due to injuries.

It's the fourth straight year Woodson was picked to start.

Matthews became the first Packer since John Brockington in the 1970's to be named to the Pro Bowl in his first 3 NFL seasons. Kuhn, Raji, and Wells were picked for the first time.

The Pro Bowl game will be played January 29th in Honolulu.

But if the Packers make the Super Bowl, they won't be there for the second straight year. The Super Bowl is the week after the All-Star game.
