Aloha Stadium, Honolulu, HI
HONOLULU -- A tropical rainstorm moved in from the Pacific and cleared just before the Pro Bowl began on Sunday. What followed was a sloppy show that was not exactly riveting entertainment a week in advance of the Super Bowl.The NFC's 55-41 victory, a game not nearly as interesting as that score would indicate, did nothing to repair the tattered image of the NFL's all-star contest.
The NFC and AFC combined to score 96 points, good for the second-highest point total in Pro Bowl history.
• The NFC scored the game's first 42 points, winning for the third time in the last four years.
• The 55 points scored by the NFC equals the most scored by one team in a Pro Bowl (2004 NFC), and the 96 points scored is the second-highest combined total in a Pro Bowl.
• Tony Gonzalez had a four-yard TD reception, his record-setting sixth career Pro Bowl TD.
• Adrian Peterson had a 14-yard touchdown run. That was his fourth career Pro Bowl rushing TD, which is also a record.
• The 13 touchdowns were scored by 12 different players, Jacksonville FB Montell Owens was the only player with two TDs in the game.
• DeAngelo Hall was named the MVP (INT, FF, TD), to become the first Redskin named Pro Bowl MVP since Joe Theismann in 1984.
