Three Vikings make impact for NFC in Pro Bowl defeat


The Steelers “Big 3″ will headline the AFC Pro Bowlers

No matter how much fans claim to hate the game, it's still one of the favorite traditions in American sports and we can count on them being around for a long time.

The AFC fell behind 20-3 at the end of the first half as it looked like the NFC was going to cruise to an easy Pro Bowl victory.

However, on his first snap of his second drive with the AFC Carr threw an interception while taking another deep shot against Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson dropping his numbers to 6-of-8 and dropping his QB rating to 63 after peaking at a game-high 110.1 after his first drive.

The Dolphins were frustrated this year when safety Reshad Jones was the only one selected; receiver Jarvis Landry was added a replacement for injured all-star DeAndre Hopkins.

Walker caught 4 passes for 29 yards and a pair of touchdowns, including a go-ahead score from Oakland Raiders tight end Derek Carr in the final minute that secured the win for the AFC.

The AFC squad will be led by Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin and his staff, while the NFC squad will be led by New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton and his staff.

Instead, it was a ton of passing (which is more exciting, without question), but there has to be a way to (safely) get the RBs more involved in the game and keep things fun and interesting.

The pass-catchers and running backs could play on defense or the offensive line, while the linemen get their chance to run routes and catch passes.

Miller also recorded three tackles and a deflected pass in the game in addition to the big sack.

Smith, meanwhile, has made more than $106 million in his career, so the monetary difference between winning and losing is paltry.

A week after getting blown out in the NFC title game by the Philadelphia Eagles, a few Vikings had far better performances Sunday.

According to USA Today, Ladainian Tomlinson, Warrick Dunn, Jason Taylor and Derrick Brooks are the four National Football League legends who will serve as the Pro Bowl captains.

Smith had that interception along with two passes defended.

Sometimes an award just writes itself, and the familiarity surrounding Brees in Orlando makes the case easy.

Graham Gano's field goal ensured a big lead at the break but the AFC began their rally early in the second when Walker struck for the first time and Carr's big-play link-up with TY Hilton set-up a LeSean McCoy score to bring the AFC to within three and set-up the dramatic conclusion.
