Turns out Zbikowski is having a heck of year for the Ravens. He's in a tight contest for votes for the NFL Pro Bowl as a Special Teamer.  Fan voting counts for 1/3 of the final decision on who is selected and  Tommy is in the top five of vote-getters. According to a press release, fans can help in the voting by going to:  www.NFL.com/probowl/ballot  Click on Special Teams, then Special Teamers.  You can vote as often as you wish.
 

Zbikowski has started the past two weeks, replacing injured Safety Ed Reed (a five-time pro-bowler) and has made two interceptions.
