Don’t look now, but the Dallas Cowboys are getting recognition for being one of the top teams in the NFL. Every season, the teams who usually have the best records represent the most players when it comes to the Pro Bowl.

The Cowboys could be on their way to having one of the biggest turnouts for the Pro Bowl in a long time.

The NFL released the initial tally in fan voting for the All-Star weekend and who ranks in the top ten for their position groups across the league.

Across the NFC, Dallas owns the leading votes for quarterback, wide receiver, guard, outside linebacker, cornerback, and kicker. That means Dak Prescott, CeeDee Lamb, Zack Martin, Micah Parsons, DaRon Bland, and Brandon Aubrey are well on their way to making the Pro Bowl in Orlando, Florida.

Prescott and Lamb have taken the reigns to lead an offensive explosion that ranks Dallas as one of the best units in the NFL. Prescott is firmly in the MVP conversation, while Lamb is on pace to break franchise records.

Martin and Parsons continue to be the premier players at their position, and adding another Pro Bowl to their résumé could put them on pace for a Hall of Fame career. Specifically for Martin, his potential ninth nomination would tie him with Randy White for the fifth most in team history.

As for Bland and Aubrey, if they are selected for the Pro Bowl, it would be their first career appearance. Both players have made history with a month of games remaining in 2023. Bland has gained national recognition for his record-setting five pick-sixes in a season. Aubrey’s transition from the MLS to the NFL is what people talk about, but his streak of making 26 straight field goals to start a career has earned him the right to be a Pro Bowler.

These six players are the ones in the lead for their positions, but that doesn’t mean with a few weeks left in fan voting, there can’t be more players that join.

Among the top ten names across all positions, the Cowboys have 11 other players' names represented. Tyler Smith, Tyler Biadasz, Tyron Smith, and Terence Steele are all mentioned, while teammates like Jake Ferguson, Trent Sieg, and Sam Williams could also be first-time Pro Bowl players.

If there are players you want to see represented, using “X” might be your best chance to make the most significant impact:

Social voting — During the final two weeks of voting (Dec. 11 – Dec. 25), fans can vote directly on “X” (formerly Twitter) by tweeting the first and last name of the player, tagging the player’s official Twitter handle or creating a hashtag including the player’s first and last name. All three of these methods must include the hashtag: #ProBowlVote. During the final two days (Dec. 24 – Dec. 25), social votes will count as double.

Fan voting for the game ends on Dec. 25. You could now vote by going to the league’s website, the Cowboys' website, or via social media.
