Who Watched the Pro Bowl?
Did you? Probably not. Let’s face it, the Pro Bowl is about as exciting as watching your kid’s flag football game. However, since it is sort of our job to deliver you with the latest sports news…we had to watch. Luckily there were a few exciting plays and a few laughs throughout the game.
Brandon Marshall stole the show this year. He caught six passes for 176 yards and four touchdowns, which is a Pro Bowl record. His four touchdowns helped propel the AFC to an easy 59-41 victory. Marshall not only provided the touchdowns, he provided almost all of the excitement. Late in the third quarter, Marshall made an insane touchdown pass. The ball had been deflected and Marshall somehow caught it, while lying on his back! You’ll see it on the highlight reel, don’t worry. Marshall made another great touchdown catch in the fourth quarter, and went on to be the Pro Bowl MVP.
Brandon Marshall was certainly the star of the night, but how about the loser? Well, that would have to go to Cam Newton. They say first impressions are everything…well Cam Newton did not make a great first impression to the Pro Bowl audience. The crowd could be heard booing Newton throughout the 4th quarter.
All in all it was your typical Pro Bowl game. A lot of offense, a lot of fun and no defense at all.
