Pro Bowl Score

Pro Bowl Score, (AP) – A beautiful day in Hawaii does not erase the memory of an ugly playoff exit for the Atlanta Falcons, but it should help relieve the pain. Coach Mike Smith for the quarterback Matt Ryan, tight end Tony Gonzalez, running back Michael Turner and Roddy White receiver, the Falcons were 55-41 over the NFC Pro Bowl win on Sunday, a game that has never been closer than the final score indicates.
“The Falcons were well represented today,” Gonzalez said in an understatement. Atlanta has the best record in the regular season in the NFC at 13-3, but was embarrassed at home 48-21 by the Green Bay Packers in the playoffs in the division. However, the Falcons success of previous editions have led to nine players being selected to the Pro Bowl, more than any other team, with Smith running the show.
When Atlanta fullback Ovie Mugheli rumbled in for the first time in the NFC seven touchdowns, the stage was set. Falcon’s players figured in four touchdowns.
Philadelphia Michael Vick was the starting quarterback but did not play after the first quarter. Most of the time behind the center went to Ryan, whose first pass was intercepted. But he was 6 for 6 for 91 yards and two touchdowns the rest of the half of the NFC has opened a lead of 42-0 and 42-7 at the interval increased.
Best games of the game Ryan were 25-yard pass at Arizona, Larry Fitzgerald, and a piece of business, which has in mind the masterpieces of the receiver with the now retired Kurt Warner.
Ryan completed 9 of 13 for 118 yards. Gonzalez, in his 11th Pro Bowl, had three taken to stimulate his Pro Bowl-record total to 42. His 4-yard pass from Ryan gave him four for his career, more than any other receiver.
Turner had a workmanlike 53 yards on eight carries. Quarterbacks threw blank five times and he caught it all, for 69 yards.
Do not get lost in the praise was Smith and his staff. Carolina Jon Beason, whose interception 59 yards back in the fourth quarter gave the NFC its 55 points, tying the record for most Pro Bowl by one team, praised the game plan of coach. True, a game plan in the Pro Bowl.
“We had a big project goes against these guys,” said Beason. “Coaches Atlanta did a good job of putting us in a position to make plays and we did.”
MVP DeAngelo Hall had one of his team’s five interceptions and returned a fumble 34 yards for a touchdown to help. He won a new Cadillac for his efforts.
“I was about to buy another SUV, cornerback of the Washington Redskins said,” to come here and take one for free, I like it. ”
AFC quarts Philip Rivers, Peyton Manning and Matt Cassel threw interceptions each in the first half performance ugly even by the standards of this game historically low
Appropriately for this strange contest, center Alex Mack of Cleveland scored the final touchdown on a pass play 67-yard, which included two sides with 16 seconds left.
Pro Bowls are by their nature; business casual, seemingly played at half speed by players whose greatest concern is to get on the plane home without injury.
The AFC, however, took this attitude to the extreme discomfort from the start before returning to the NFC 41-13 unmarked.
NFC led 42-0 after Steven Jackson waltzed through the AFC defense for a touchdown from 21 yards – and there were still 4 ½ minutes in the second quarter.
But just when it appeared he would be the game most one-sided in the Pro Bowl history, eclipsing Joe Theismann led 45-3 rout in 1984 NFC, the AFC has scored three touchdowns in a row. The latest entrant in the turnover seventh game, when Devin Hester tried to hand the punt return by Hall, but the ball fell to the turf. Montell Owens of Jacksonville, he collected and he ran 10 yards for a score to make it 42-21 with 10 minutes in the third quarter.
With seven extra points, tying a record for Pro Bowl, with two field goals, David Akers grew Morten Andersen (45) for most career points with 52 Pro Bowl. Philadelphia kicker would have been more, but his field goal from 36 yards in the fourth quarter trying to bounce off the upright.
“Morten Andersen was one of my mentors and I participated with Morten for a job in Atlanta and he taught me a lot,” said Akers, “which means a lot to be able to pass a legend like that “?
The game returned to its traditional home in Hawaii after a detour to Miami a year, much to the approval of stakeholders.
Notes: A punt of 70 yards by Mat McBriar Dallas in the first quarter tied for second longest in the history of Pro Bowl. … The State of Hawaii is paying the NFL about $ 4 million this season and next to keep the Pro Bowl in Honolulu. The location of this contest is in the air after 2012. … The winning players and 45,000 won each, and 22,500 losers. … The presence of 49,338 was slightly less than a capitulation.
