Recap


NFC 62, AFC 35:
Russell Wilson went 8-for-10 for 98 yards and three touchdowns and Eli Manning threw two scoring passes as the NFC crushed the AFC in the Pro Bowl.

Kyle Rudolph was named the game's MVP after piling up 122 receiving yards and a touchdown and Vincent Jackson caught a pair of scoring passes for the NFC, which took back the NFL’s annual All-Star game after falling to the AFC last winter.

Andrew Luck threw for 205 yards and two touchdowns and A.J. Green caught seven passes for 119 yards and three scores to lead the AFC.

Minnesota Vikings running back and MVP candidate Adrian Peterson fumbled the opening handoff of the game from Drew Brees and the AFC needed only four plays for Peyton Manning to find Jackson in the end zone for a 6-yard score. The AFC lead again at 14-10 after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson intercepted a pass from Eli Manning and took it back 42 yards for a score with 11:24 left in the first half.

It was all NFC from there, as Eli Manning found Giants teammate Victor Cruz for a 9-yard touchdown to take back the lead and Marshawn Lynch ran for a score before Eli Manning hit Rudolph with a 3-yard pass six seconds before the break for a 31-14 lead.

Wilson provided the highlight of the game when he rolled to his backside away from Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and floated the first of his three third-quarter touchdown passes to Tampa Bay running back Doug Martin for 28 yards.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The NFC takes a 22-21 lead in the all-time series. … NFC representative and Green Bay Packers C Jeff Saturday got a one-play chance to hand it off to former Indianapolis Colts teammate Peyton Manning for a simple running play. Saturday will retire after game. … The 97-point total marked the third-highest behind 2004 (107) and 2012 (100). … Watt got a few chances to line up at wide receiver, missing a pass from Peyton Manning on the opening drive and then getting beat by Giants end Jason Pierre-Paul for an interception on the final passing play of the contest.
