TE Tony Gonzalez became the second Atlanta Falcons player to score in the 2011 Pro Bowl, catching a four-yard dart at the back of the end zone from real-life teammate Matt Ryan. On the next play from scrimmage, Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall ripped the ball out of New England Patriots WR Wes Welker’s hands, running the fumble back for yet another touchdown.
The NFC has outgained the AFC by over 100 yards and is winning the turnover battle four to one, which makes that 28-0 score less surprising.
If Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson wants to win that MVP award, he’s going to need to lobby to get some more playing time, because longshot Hall is the front-runner now.
The AFC has the ball back now, and I sort of hope the one mean team stops playing so much defense and let’s the nice team have a point. Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles is among the players who have checked in for the AFC.
