NFL Pro Bowl 2014: Team Rice outlasts Team Sanders for 22-21 victory; Foles, Johnson take MVP honors

The first NFL Pro Bowl where teams were drafted by two NFL legends is officially in the books and it was actually quite the nail-biter as the team led by Jerry Rice defeated the team led by Deion Sanders by a narrow 22-21 score.

Nick Foles of Team Sanders was the winner of the offensive MVP honors as the Philadelphia Eagles’ breakout star of 2013 completed 7-of-10 passes for 78 yards with a touchdown pass to to Jordan Cameron in the fourth quarter as the game was winding down, making it seem as of Prime Time’s team may walk away with the win.

However, after a Demarco Murray receiving touchdown to cut the score to 21-20, Mike Tolbert took in the two-point conversion to give the win to Team Rice.

All things considered, the game was all-around the same as it’s ever been, just with the new dynamic of the mix of players from different conferences.

It was also rather entertaining, as we all thought it would be, to listen to Rice and Sanders throughout the evening.

No matter what your opinion of the game is, it’s still football.
