The AFC knocked off the NFC 41-34 in Sunday’s NFL Pro Bowl game in Miami.
Green Bay Packers Quarterback Aaron Rodgers started in his Pro Bowl debut, completing 15 of 19 passes for 197 yards and two touchdowns. Rodgers led the NFC to points on all three of his drives. He left the game with the NFC leading 17-14.
Two other Packers played in the game, linebacker Clay Matthews and safety Nick Collins. Matthews recorded one solo tackle on defense and added a special teams tackle. Collins also started and collected four tackles.
Both the NFC and AFC tallied more than 400 passing yards in the game, which drew more than 70,000-thousand fans for the game, which is the largest crowd to see a Pro Bowl game since the game in 1959 in Los Angeles.
Editors note: Nearly 40% of those originally voted to play in this game, didn’t. Some because of injuries and some others are getting ready for next week’s Super Bowl. No all-star game is perfect and generally lacks firepower. And you can put the NFL Pro Bowl among those that made you want to turn to something else.
I don’t have the answer, but I do know this, the NFL needs to come up with something to make this game more viewable. Moving it to 1-week before the Super Bowl isn’t the answer.
