Who Shined In The NFL Pro Bowl?
The NFL Pro Bowl is a vacation for the players, but it's also a chance for them to come away with bragging rights. This time, the AFC got the better of the match.
After a scoreless first quarter, the AFC broke out for two touchdowns in the second quarter, and Drew Brees tossed a score for the NFC to make the score 14-7 at halftime. After that, the AFC tacked on two more field goals to lock up a 20-16 win. Let's all be real though, you don't care about who won.
What NFL consumers care about is the fan fare. Who had the best time? Did somebody do something incredible? That's what we will look at, not the minor details of the game.
Odell Beckham Jr. is one of the biggest personalities in the NFL, and he wasn't going to miss out on the action at the Pro Bowl. He led all receivers with 92 yards, and he busted a few dances moves while he was there.

Unfortunately, he didn't find the endzone. Doug Baldwin caught the only touchdown for the NFC, and he caught it from New Orleans' finest.
It was a mixed day for Drew Brees at the Pro Bowl. He tosses a touchdown to Baldwin, but he also threw an interception. Brees had 112 yards on the day, but he wasn't the quarterback who created the most buzz.
Kurt Cousins led all QB's with 158 yards, but he also threw an interception. He was also the executor of the most surprising moment of the game, when he tracked down a defender from behind to turn a turnover on its head.
Nobody ever expects the QB to force a fumble, but Cousins was on the prowl for the football.
Truly speaking, it was an off night for the offenses. Some of the other professional All-Star games are all about offense, but the Pro Bowl only produced three touchdowns. There were actually more turnovers than touchdowns, which means the defenders really won the Pro Bowl.
After this, the Super Bowl is the only thing left for the NFL season. Hopefully, it will bring more offense than the Pro Bowl.
