Team Irvin wins Pro Bowl
GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Jimmy Graham, Matthew Stafford and J.J. Watt were the stars in Sunday’s Pro Bowl, which was won by Team Irvin 32-28 over Team Carter.
Graham grabbed two touchdown passes, including a 1-yard scoring grab from Matt Ryan on fourth down with 3:10 remaining. Stafford was the offensive game MVP after throwing for 316 yards and two TDs. Watt came away with defensive MVP honors by intercepting a pass and recovering a fumble.
Greg Olsen and Emmanuel Sanders also caught a pair of touchdown passes apiece.
The goal posts were narrowed to from 18.6 feet to 14 feet on all kicks, not just PATs as had been previously announced. The PATs also were moved back to make it a 33-yard kick. Adam Vinatieri (vin-ah-TEHR’-ee) missed two extra points and a 38-yard field goal. The 42-year-old Colts kicker hasn’t missed an extra point in real games in five years.
