NEW YORK -- New England quarterback Tom Brady ended as the leading vote-getter for the 2011 Pro Bowl in the final fan balloting results.

Brady, who passed Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick, received 1,877,079 votes while Vick received 1,522,437. Peyton Manning (1,130,399), Phillip Rivers (1,039,618) and Drew Brees (971,737) rounded out the top-five overall.

Joining Vick as the top offensive vote-getters for the NFC were Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson, New Orleans fullback Heath Evans, Atlanta wide receiver Roddy White and tight end Tony Gonzalez, Green Bay tackle Chad Clifton and Josh Sitton, and New York center Shaun O'Hara.

NFC defensive leaders included Chicago end Julius Peppers, Detroit rookie tackle Ndamukong Suh, linebackers Clay Matthews of Green bay and Brian Urlacher of Chicago, safeties LaRon Landry of Washington and Antrel Rolle of New York and Green Bay cornerback Charles Woodson.

Special teams leaders for the NFC were Philadelphia kicker David Akers, Arizona punter Ben Graham, Chicago kick returner Devin Hester and Minnesota special teamer Heath Farwell.

AFC offensive leaders other than Brady were running back Arian Foster, fullback Vonta Leach, wide receiver Andre Johnson -- all from Houston -- San Diego tight end Antonio Gates, Cincinnati tackle Andrew Whitworth, Cleveland guard Eric Steinbach and Indianapolis center Jeff Saturday.

Defensively the AFC leaders were Indianapolis end Dwight Freeney, Baltimore tackle Haloti Ngata, linebackers James Harrison of Pittsburgh and Ray Lewis of Baltimore, Oakland cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and safeties Troy Polamalu of Pittsburgh and Ed Reed of Baltimore.

The final Pro Bowl teams will be announced on Tuesday, December 28, and are determined by fans, players and coaches with each group's vote counting for one-third to make up the total.

This year's NFL All-Star Game will return to Hawaii and will be played on January 30, again a week before the Super Bowl.
