NFC Handles AFC in Pro Bowl

HONOLULU (AP) - Sack-happy

defensive end J.J. Watt went out for a pass as a wide receiver, retiring center

Jeff Saturday snapped to two Mannings on opposite teams and the NFC blew past

the AFC 62-35 in a Pro Bowl that could be the league's last.

Whether the NFL's all-star game will

return or not is a question league officials will ponder the next few months.

And, the players gave plenty to consider on both sides of the argument Sunday.

The NFC was unstoppable on offense, with

nearly each player putting up fantasy-type lines in limited play. The AFC,

meanwhile, had five turnovers and scored most of its points well after the game

was no longer competitive.

Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph was voted

the game's MVP with 122 yards and a touchdown.

Watt, who

had 20 1/2 sacks for Houston, lined up as a wide receiver on the AFC's third

play from scrimmage, but missed a pass from Denver quarterback Peyton Manning.
