Quarterback Daunte Culpepper, center Matt Birk and defensive tackle Kevin Williams today were named to the Pro Bowl.
Despite being inactive for four games this year while recovering from hernia surgery, Birk was named to the Pro Bowl for the fourth time in his five years as a starting center.
Culpepper, making his third appearance and second in two years, leads the NFC with 34 touchdown passes, 4,133 yards, a 69.9 completion percentage and a 110.1 passer rating through 14 games.
Williams will be making his first Pro Bowl appearance after his second straight season with 10 or more sacks. He is the first Vikings defensive tackle to be named to the Pro Bowl since John Randle in 1998.
Cornerback Antoine Winfield and wide receiver Randy Moss also garnered heavy consideration, but Moss' partially torn hamstring caused him to essentially miss five games. He still has 11 touchdowns in what amounts to about nine games of service this season.
