The American Conference (AFC) team has linked five consecutive wins over the National Conference (NFC) by winning this Sunday 41-35 in the NFL Pro Bowl.
Although this is a game where the actions don’t have the same intensity as in a regular round or postseason game, no professional player goes out on the field to lose, so, in one way or another, we enjoyed this match.
In 47 editions of the Pro Bowl, played since 1970, the AFC had won 25 games, while the NFC 22. That is why the American Conference started as the clear favorites to get this victory, in addition to having players who, throughout the season, showed the excellent level of play they currently have.
In the first NFC attack, Colts linebacker Darius Leonard read Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray’s intentions and intercepted to escape into the end zone and give the AFC a 7-0 lead with a score of the defensive.
In the next NFC attack quarterback, Kirk Cousins of the Vikings tied the game with a TD pass to 49ers running back Kyle Juszczyk.
In the AFC’s first drive, quarterback Justin Herbert, just 23, showed off his accuracy with a pass to tight end Mike Andrews of the Ravens, who reclaimed the Ravens’ 14-7 lead.
In the second quarter, Myles Garrett of the Browns stole the ball from the NFC offense and made it 22-13.
His intense dominance of the AFC stretched the lead to 41-21, one drive later on Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs’ rushing touchdown.
The American Conference continues to dominate the game, leaving no gaps for the NFC to organize and plan an offense that allows them to get closer to the scoreboard.
We even had time to laugh, since, after a disallowed play, Mac Jones raised the public’s emotions by scoring a Touchdown that was not worth it, but it was part of the show.
