The AFC Overcomes A 17-point Deficit To Stun The NFC In The Pro Bowl 24-23
The steady rain was a factor in the first of four AFC turnovers in the 2018 Pro Bowl, but the AFC rallied for a 24-23 victory over the NFC at Camping World Stadium.
The NFC built a 20-3 lead by halftime, but the AFC made a game out of it by cutting the deficit to three points in the third quarter. With three minutes left in the game, the Derek Carr-quarterback AFC squad trailed by six points and faced a fourth-and-7. Carr hit Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry for a first down. A slant to Colts receiver T.Y. Hilton on the other side of the two-minute warning got the AFC inside the red zone. A dart from Carr to Titans tight end Delanie Walker gave the AFC their first lead of the game with 91 seconds remaining.
The Titans' tight end Delanie Walker took home offensive MVP honors while the Broncos' pass rusher Von Miller won defensive MVP. Walker caught four passes for 29 yards and two scores. Broncos linebacker Von Miller hadthree tackles and a game-sealing strip sack with 36 seconds remaining.
The rain returned in the fourth quarter and Peterson's second interception initially appeared to seal the NFC win. But Carr led a seven-play, 47-yard scoring drive as Rams quarterback Jared Goff, who went 10 of 18 for 86 yards, was unable to generate any points. Goff was sacked by Miller and fumbled to give the AFC the victory.
