As expected, the 2013 Pro Bowl was a high-scoring affair. The NFC ended up winning by a score of 62-35 over the AFC in what could potentially be the final Pro Bowl in its current form. There has been a lot of talk that the game could be canceled or at the very least altered in some way, although nothing has been decided at this time.
Two Detroit Lions players were on the victorious NFC squad. Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh had 2 tackles, and he made it through the game without causing any controversy (as far as I know). Don Muhlbach served as the long snapper for the NFC, and he had plenty of chances to be on the field with the NFC scoring so many points.
Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson was selected to the Pro Bowl as a starter, but he did not play in the game because of an injury.
Perhaps the most noteworthy thing that happened in the Pro Bowl for me was Minnesota Vikings and former Lions fullback Jerome Felton scoring a 3-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. I can't say I ever thought Felton would be scoring in the Pro Bowl back when the Lions cut him a couple years ago, but his career has really taken off since then.
Nothing else really stood out to me because I didn't actually watch the Pro Bowl. Perhaps I would have tuned in if Matthew Stafford was quarterbacking the NFC, but I just don't care enough about a meaningless game like this to watch. I know many people feel the same way, but I would expect the ratings to be quite big for the game even though it gets a lot of criticism.
In the future, what do you think the NFL should do with the Pro Bowl? Should the league just keep it as it is? Should the league cancel it? Should it be changed into a skills competition? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
