2011 Pro Bowl: Philip Rivers, Reggie Wayne Score To Begin AFC Comeback

While Mike Smith’s NFC Pro Bowl team seems to be working through its depth chart on a quarterly basis, Bill Belichick’s AFC squad has started all over. San Diego Chargers QB Philip Rivers, who got the start today, re-took the field at the beginning of the second half.

All that rest paid off, with Rivers finding Indianapolis Colts WR Reggie Wayne for a 16-yard touchdown, the AFC’s second of the day. On the following kickoff, Washington Redskins CB DeAngelo Hall was not aware he was involved in a reverse, resulting in a fumble that Houston Texans RB Arian Foster returned for another score.

And toward the end of the first half Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles ran in an eight-yarder that I forgot to write about.

It’s 42-21 NFC, and now you’re all up to speed.

Rivers now has 119 yards, leading all quarterbacks, but has also thrown two interceptions. Wayne leads all receivers with 65 yards on three catches, putting him in contention for that MVP trophy.
