INDIANAPOLIS — The Colts had more to celebrate Monday than just Sunday's thrilling win over Houston.

On Monday, the NFL named three Colts to the 2021 Pro Bowl. They are:

Ryan Kelly: He has started all 12 games and is part of a Colts offensive line that has allowed the second-fewest sacks in 2020. This marks Kelly’s second career Pro Bowl as he was named to his first last season.

Darius Leonard: Leads the team in tackles. Since entering the NFL in 2018, he ranks in the top 10 among linebackers in total tackles, solo tackles, passes defensed, interceptions, and forced fumbles.

This will be Leonard's second career Pro Bowl. He was also named last year.

Quenton Nelson: Has started all 14 games this season. He currently ranks fourth in consecutive regular season games started among active guards in the NFL. Nelson becomes just the third Colt in team history to earn Pro Bowl honors in his first three seasons, joining Andrew Luck and Alan Ameche.
