The teams will be announced at 7 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Dec. 27, on a special "NFL Total Access 2012 Pro Bowl Selection Show" on NFL Network.

The 2012 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2012, and televised live on NBC at 7 p.m. ET from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Fans may purchase tickets starting later this month at NFL.com/probowl.

The AFC and NFC All-Star squads are based on the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group's vote counts one-third toward determining the 43-man rosters that represent the American Football Conference and National Football Conference in the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on December 21-22.

The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams. It was the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.

Listed below are the players with the most votes at each position through November 30:
