MIAMI (AP) - Thanks to the Pro Bowl, the scoreboard in Miami is
all warmed up for the Super Bowl.
Long gains were the rule and hard hitting was the exception
Sunday night as the AFC all-stars beat the NFC 41-34.
Light showers fell for much of the game, stirring memories of a
rainy Super Bowl in Miami three years ago, but the weather failed
to slow either offense. The AFC's Matt Schaub and the NFC's Aaron
Rodgers threw two touchdown passes each, and DeSean Jackson caught
two scoring passes for the NFC.
Spectators included the Pro Bowl players from the Indianapolis
Colts and New Orleans Saints. Peyton Manning and Drew Brees took
the night off because they'll meet on the same field in the Super
Bowl next Sunday.
