Last night, the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl took place in Glendale, AZ and it was certainly entertaining. This year, the Pro Bowl included a few new rules as the goal post was slimmer, teams only had 2 timeouts a half and as its been over the past few years, NFL all stars were drafted by NFL hall of famers Cris Carter and Michael Irvin.
According to NFL.com,
Matthew Stafford threw for 316 yards, two touchdowns and an interception and was named Offensive MVP for helping lead Team Irvin to a 32-28 victory. J.J. Watt won the Defensive MVP award, mostly for being a menace to Stafford.
Watt had a goal-line interception of the Detroit Lions’ quarterback, recovered a fumble charged to Stafford and had three swatted passes.
“It’s so much fun to play with guys that are playing at such an elite level,” Watt said of wining Defensive MVP. “The new style now where you pick teams, it makes it like schoolyard ball — I’ve said that before. So it’s competitive, 32-28, we had a chance to go down there at the end of the game, didn’t make it happen, but the game this year and last year have been very competitive.”
The Houston Texans’ defensive lineman was a superstar among superstars this week. One of the biggest cheers Sunday night came when the videoboard showed Watt dancing on the field during a timeout.
Now they the 2015 Pro Bowl has come and gone, its time to get ready for Super Bowl 49 as Richard Sherman and the Seattle Seahawks face Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Sunday February 1, live from Arizona.
