On Sunday night, the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl took place at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii, and it appeared that the changes the league made to the all-star game worked out just how they had planned.
The Pro Bowl was one of the most competitive that we have seen in recent memory, with Team Rice edging Team Sanders 22-21.
After the game, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles was named the game’s Offensive MVP, while Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson picked up the Defensive MVP honors. Both players received a GMC truck for their outstanding performances.
Foles earned the MVP award with a modest 89 yards and a touchdown on 7-of-10 passing.
While Foles state line may not be impressive considering the numbers that he was putting up during the regular season, it is important to remember that he was sharing reps with Andrew Luck and Cam Newton.
Foles was also the only quarterback in the game who did not toss an interception.
San Diego Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers led the game in interceptions with two, while Newton, Luck, Alex Smith and Drew Brees all tossed one interception a piece.
It was an impressive way for Foles to finish off his season, and now he will begin to prepare for the offseason where he will enter OTAs and training camp as the Eagles starter for the first time in his career.
