The NFL Pro Bowl is an event that not many football fans in this country have circled on their calendar every single year. Despite that being the case and every NFL fan anxiously waiting for the Super Bowl, this game does have some of the best players in the league going head-to-head and as a result some fireworks can occur.
This past Sunday, the NFL Pro Bowl was pretty much as advertised with the final combined score totaling 100 points. The AFC came out on top of the NFC as anticipated by a score of 59-41. Even though there was some impressive quarterback play by every gunslinger that got under center on Sunday in Honolulu, Hawaii, Miami Dolphins wide receiver Brandon Marshall stole the show with a record-breaking performance.
With 176 yards and four receiving touchdowns on just six catches, Brandon Marshall proved why he is still one of the best wideouts in the NFL. Marshall was on the receiving end of touchdown passes from three different AFC quarterbacks in rookie Andy Dalton (Cincinnati Bengals), Philip Rivers (San Diego Chargers) and Ben Roethlisberger (Pittsburgh Steelers).
The NFC did have their fair share of highlights as well with Aaron Rodgers (Green Bay Packers), Drew Brees (New Orleans Saints) and rookie Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers) throwing for two touchdowns apiece. The only problem is the game got out of hand once Newton was under center as he threw a game-high three interceptions and basically gave the win to the AFC.
Another rookie quarterback Andy Dalton put the nail in the coffin with a 3-yard strike to Pro Bowl MVP Brandon Marshall with about eight and a half minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. As if that weren’t bad enough, Derrick Johnson (Kansas City Chiefs) picked off Cam Newton for a 60-yard interception returned for a touchdown that put the game out of reach for the NFC.
