Peyton and Eli Manning both were voted to the Pro Bowl yesterday, the first time quarterback-playing brothers have been chosen for the same all-star game.

The Indianapolis Colts' Peyton will make his ninth appearance in 11 seasons and will start for the AFC.

It will be the first appearance for Eli on the NFC team, although he was the MVP for the New York Giants in last February's Super Bowl.

The Giants also landed the oldest Pro Bowler ever, 44-year-old kicker John Carney, who was signed at the start of the season as a short-term fill-in for the injured Lawrence Tynes. He has made 27 of 29 field goals - the two he missed were blocked - and has kept the now-recovered Tynes inactive for all but two games.

Giants punter Jeff Feagles, a comparative youngster at 42, also was chosen.

The New York Jets led all teams with seven Pro Bowlers, including quarterback Brett Favre, who will be in his 10th Pro Bowl, but his first representing the AFC. The Jets had no players selected last season.

The starting NFC quarterback will be Kurt Warner, who led the Arizona Cardinals to the NFC West title.

With Warner on the NFC squad are the Cardinals' starting wide receivers, Anquan Boldin and Larry Fitzgerald, both voted in as starters.

Tight end Tony Gonzalez of Kansas City made his 10th straight Pro Bowl and Tampa Bay linebacker Derrick Brooks made it for the 11th time. He had 10 straight, missed last season and returned this year.

Tennessee Titans running back Chris Johnson was the only rookie to make either team.

The Titans, who have the NFL's best record at 12-2 and won their first 10 games, will send six players to the game.

Browns. Tight end Steve Heiden has torn ligaments in his right knee and will miss the rest of the season. Heiden injured the ACL during Cleveland's 30-10 loss to the Eagles on Monday night.

Rookie linebacker Beau Bell also will undergo surgery on his right knee for tendinitis and swelling.

Vick may move. Former Falcons star Michael Vick could be out of federal prison and in a Virginia halfway house by Jan. 20, one of his attorneys told a federal bankruptcy judge.

Vick is serving a 23-month term in Leavenworth, Kan., for bankrolling a dogfighting conspiracy. He is scheduled to be released from federal custody around July 20.

Jaguars. Jacksonville placed receiver Jerry Porter, linebacker Daryl Smith and defensive tackle Tony McDaniel on injured reserve, ending their seasons.

Ratings soar. The Dallas Cowboys' victory over the New York Giants drew the most viewers ever for a Sunday Night Football game.

The Cowboys' 20-8 win last Sunday on NBC attracted 23.1 million viewers, the network said.
