Not bad for a third alternate.

NFL: Pro Bowl-NFC at AFC Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

If you’re like me, you probably weren’t giving the 2020 Pro Bowl any attention on Sunday afternoon. As if the game itself wasn’t uninteresting enough, the death of Kobe Bryant just hours before kickoff grabbed the attention of most, making the all-star game seem even more irrelevant than ever.

However, the game went on, and apparently Detroit Lions wide receiver Kenny Golladay had himself quite a game. Though he only had three catches on the day, he turned those into 109 receiving yards, more than anyone else on either team.

The Detroit Lions highlighted all three of his catches, and there were some neat ones. Check it out:

Golladay’s first catch was on a nasty double move in which the Lions receiver completely burns Ravens cornerback Marlon Humphrey, who was not only a Pro Bowler but a first-team All Pro this year.

On his next catch, he caught a pass from in-division rival Davante Adams on a double-pass play. And on the final play, he caught a laser from Kirk Cousins in between two defenders.

His performance wasn’t enough to earn Pro Bowl MVP, which was awarded to Lamar Jackson for his 185-yard, two-touchdown performance in a winning effort. Still, it was a pretty solid game from Golladay, who was originally a third alternate for the game.

  • Over the weekend, several NFL Twitter accounts were hacked. During that time, we pulled off the greatest trade with the Chicago Bears.

  • If you missed any of the extra access to Matt Patricia at the Senior Bowl, you missed some entertaining content. First, here’s his funny mid-game interview during Saturday’s game:

Then there’s an interesting look into his coaching process with him mic’d up during practices:
