Honolulu, HI (SportsNetwork.com) - It took a fantasy style draft along with a
few slight rule changes, but Roger Goodell finally found a way to make the Pro
DeMarco Murray caught a 20-yard touchdown pass with under a minute left and
Mike Tolbert followed with a go-ahead two-point conversion run, as Team Rice
secured a 22-21 win over Team Sanders on Sunday in the 2014 Pro Bowl at Aloha
The familiar AFC-NFC dynamic that had existed since 1971 was replaced by Pro
Football Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders serving as alumni team
captains for the two Pro Bowl squads.
Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles, the last pick in the draft for Team
Sanders, and Cleveland tight end Jordan Cameron, Sanders' second-to-last pick,
hooked up for a 12-yard score with 4:41 left to break a 14-all tie.
Kansas City quarterback Alex Smith was picked off on Team Rice's next touch,
but following a punt from Team Sanders, Smith led his squad 58 yards in four
plays, culminating in his scoring strike to Murray with 41 seconds left.
After Tolbert surged up the middle on the decisive two-point conversion, Foles
got Team Sanders close enough to try a 67-yard field goal from Justin Tucker,
but the kick was short, giving Team Rice the victory.
Foles was named the Offensive MVP, while Kansas City linebacker Derrick
Johnson took home Defensive MVP honors.
