"You're not going to see people play dirty or giving it up like a playoff game, but that's just the way it is," Daniels said. "I think you've got to accept that and . know that we love being out here and I think you've got to know that the people here love having us out here."
Daniels said he's been motivated to return to the Pro Bowl after making his first all-star team in 2009. He said he sees the Pro Bowl as a good consolation for players who would rather be in the Super Bowl.
Peterson said moments like his chat with two NFL greats are what make the trip worthwhile for him.
"It's the best part," he said. "It's a bonus, man."
Charles said he's enjoyed watching the leadership of other Pro Bowl players as he's been taking on a bigger leadership role with the Chiefs.
