The game continued the "unconferenced" format that was debuted in the 2014 Pro Bowl. The game was the third Pro Bowl that took place in the same site as that year's Super Bowl. It was also the sixth consecutive year where the Pro Bowl took place prior to the Super Bowl.
A two-minute warning was added to the first and third quarters, plus overtime, and the ball switched hands after every quarter/overtime.
Teams were given two timeouts per quarter (instead of the customary three timeouts per half) and if a team only used one timeout in the first or third quarter, they could carry their additional timeout to the next quarter. However, timeouts could not carry over from one half to next or into first overtime.
No kickoffs. A coin toss determined which team is awarded possession first, and the ball was placed on the 25-yard line at the start of each quarter and after scoring plays.
Goal posts were narrowed from 18 feet wide to 14 feet wide.
Extra points were attempted from the 15 yard line.
The rosters consisted of 44 players per squad.
The defense was permitted to play "cover two" and "press" coverage. In the previous years, only "man" coverage was permitted, except for goal line situations.
Beginning at the two-minute mark of every quarter/overtime, if the offense did not gain at least one yard, the clock stopped as if the play were an incomplete pass.
