Pro Bowl Score: NFC Defeats AFC, 55-41

Pro Bowl Score: In professional American football, the Pro Bowl is the all-star game of the National Football League (NFL). Since the merger with the rival American Football League (AFL) in 1970, it has been officially called the AFC–NFC Pro Bowl, matching the top players in the American Football Conference (AFC) against those in the National Football Conference (NFC). Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson caught one pass for 11 yards during Sunday's 2011 NFL Pro Bowl.

The game was a high-scoring, offensive affair, but Johnson only had four passes thrown in his direction. Only one of them ended up being caught, and in general he wasn't very involved in the game. That wasn't a problem for the NFC, though. The NFC All-Stars jumped out to a 42-0 lead and eventually ended up winning by a ridiculous score of 55-41.
DeAngelo Hall of the NFC was named the MVP of the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl. He had six tackles, two pass defenses, an interception and a fumble recovery for a touchdown. It's interesting that a defensive player ended up receiving MVP honors in such a high-scoring game, but it's not like there were many players actually trying to stop their opponent from scoring. A common sight was defensive linemen just standing around and waiting for plays to end, and the tackling attempts throughout the game were pretty bad.

This is the Pro Bowl we're talking about, though, so it shouldn't come as a big surprise.Last year, the Aloha Stadium for the NFL Pro Bowl was expired and the commissioner is looking for a new venue for the this years Pro Bowl. Roger GoodellRoger Goodell decided that the Pro Bowl would be occurring before the 2011 Super Bowl.
