With an impressive defensive effort, Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall locked up the Pro Bowl MVP award on Sunday night. Hall did his work early, intercepting a Philip Rivers pass to end the first quarter before returning a fumble 34 yards for the touchdown in the second. Hall also finished with six tackles.
On the turnover front, the NFC defense was outstanding, forcing seven AFC turnovers in the Pro Bowl. The NFC intercepted five passes while also recovering the aforementioned fumble. Two of those turnovers were taken all the way back for touchdowns, a big reason why the NFC was able to tie the Pro Bowl scoring mark with 55 points.
Hall is the third Redskin to win the MVP award, joining Joe Theismann and Gene Brito. He's also only the fourth cornerback to win the award, joining Ty Law (1999), Jerry Gray (1990) and Mel Blount (1977).
