The NFL released on Wednesday night the first returns from the 2021 Pro Bowl voting.

Two quarterbacks are unsurprisingly leading the way. Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is leading his position in the AFC, while Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is leading his position in the NFC.

NFL Update tweeted out the position-by-position leaders.

Here's the full look:

There are a couple of surprises on here, but Mahomes and Wilson leading their respective positions is not one of them.

Mahomes is arguably the frontrunner for the NFL MVP award right now. He's led the Chiefs to a 9-1 start this season and is playing his best football at the moment. Wilson, meanwhile, is doing his best to keep the Seahawks in contention in the tough NFC West.

Pro Football Talk noted how these two QBs are the frontrunners for the MVP award earlier this week:

Via PointsBet, Mahomes has seen his odds change from +180 to -125 in the past week. Now, it takes a bet of $125 to make $100.

In turn, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson‘s odds have changed from +225 to +300. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has moved from +300 to +500.

The NFL won't have a traditional Pro Bowl this year, but it's cool to see the early votes come in.
