HONOLULU — The NFC set a Pro Bowl record for most points scored in a 62-35 victory in the 2013 AFC-NFC Pro Bowl, but most importantly the players redeemed themselves after a lackluster effort last time around and perhaps saved the game itself.
All week, both teams preached that they would play hard in the game and it showed on the field – especially on the NFC side.
Russell Wilson threw three touchdown passes and Kyle Rudolph was named the games MVP after a five-catch, 122-yard performance, which included a great touchdown catch on the final play of the first half.
A.J. Green had three touchdown catches in a losing effort for the AFC.
Dave Sims and James Lofton called the action on Westwood One Sports.
