Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph named MVP as NFC routs AFC
Honolulu, HA, United States (4E Sports) – Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph covered 122 yards on five receptions with one touchdown as the NFC blew by the AFC, 62-35, Sunday at Aloha Stadium.
Despite playing without the nine San Francisco 49ers players selected for the Pro Bowl game, the NFC still delivered a dominating performance over the AFC Pro Bowl.
The 63rd Pro Bowl started a little sluggish with both teams scoring just seven points at the end of the first quarter. However, the action picked up in the second quarter when the NFC Pro Bowl started to rip the game wideopen behind two TD passes from Eli Manning and a rushing TD from Marshawn Lynch.
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson took his turn to dismantle the AFC defense in the third quarter, throwing touchdown passes to Doug Martin, Larry Fitzgerald and Vincent Jackson.
Indianapolis Colts and AFC quarterback Andrew Luck showcased his skills in his first Pro Bowl as hooked up twice with AJ Green for a TD. Nevertheless, the NFC Pro Bowl cruised to an easy win in Hawaii.
Rudolph was named the Pro Bowl MVP in his first participation in the NFL’s pre-Super Bowl tilt.
