The players of the American Football Conference have asserted their dominance over the National Football Conference as they won the Pro Bowl, 26-7.
In a rainy day in Orlando, Florida, the AFC played with a little more effort to get an easy victory. Chiefs’ quarterback, Patrick Mahomes took the AFC offense down the field on the opening drive and threw a touchdown to Colts’ tight end, Eric Ebron. Their next scoring drive would end with Chiefs’ fullback, Anthony Sherman, scoring from a yard out. And the defense shut out the NFC in the first half.
In the second half it was more of the same, the NFC kept punting, and the AFC tacked on two field goals to make it 20-0. Then Cowboys’ quarterback, Dak Prescott, found Falcons’ tight end, Austin Hooper for their lone touchdown. At one point it looked like the NFC was going to make a comeback after Buccaneers’ wide receiver Mike Evans, who was playing on defense, intercepted Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson. However the NFC could not convert.Deshaun Watson found Jaguars’ corner back, Jalen Ramsey on a slant route for the game’s final score to make it 26-7.
The game as usual did not have a lot of effort from either side. Players were running at half speed and it was basically like watching touch football. It was still fun to watch, now the players will get back to their offseason.
