The Pro Bowl will return to Orlando, Fla., for another year, the NFL announced Wednesday.

It will mark the third consecutive year that the Pro Bowl has been played at Orlando’s Camping World Stadium.

The game will be held on Jan. 27, 2019 — one week before Super Bowl LIII is played at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

The Pro Bowl had been played annually, with a few exceptions, in Hawaii until the league shifted the game to Orlando following the 2016 season.

The AFC defeated the NFC 24-23 in January on an 18-yard touchdown pass from Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr to Tennessee Titans tight end Delanie Walker with 1:31 left in the game.
