The AFC dominated the Pro Bowl with a 59-41 win over the NFC.
The Denver Broncos had six players participating in Sunday night’s all-star game, and a former Bronco took home MVP honors (Brandon Marshall had 6 receptions for 176 yards and 4 TDs).
Willis McGahee and Ryan Clady were the team’s two offensive representatives. McGahee had 4 carries for 23 yards with a long of 11 yards. He also had one reception for 20 yards.
On the defensive side Von Miller led the AFC in tackles with 7. He also sacked last year’s No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton for a loss of 8 yards. Champ Bailey had 3 tackles, 1 fumble recovery, and 1 pass deflection. Brian Dawkins added 3 tackles of his own. Elvis Dumervil’s name didn’t hit the stat books.
The game of course doesn’t mean anything in the grand scheme of things, but it gave six deserving Broncos a free trip to Hawaii and the honorary title of Pro Bowler.
We can officially say goodbye (or aloha) to the Denver Broncos 2011 season. It was a pleasure all the way through.
