Panthers shine in Pro Bowl

In the fan voting for the Pro Bowl, Trawick didn't show up among the top 10 in the AFC's special-teamer balloting.

Oakland's Derek Carr found Walker over the middle for the go-ahead score with 1 minute, 31 seconds to play at Camping World Stadium in Orlando. Thielen had three catches for 25 yards and a touchdown, who was eclipsed by Kyle Rudolph who lead receivers on both teams with seven receptions for 70 yards (which easily doubled the amounts of any other NFC receiver).

To be fair, though, Miller's AFC side won the contest.

Carr finished the game with a stat line of 11-of-15 completions for 115 yards with one touchdown against one interception with a quarterback rating of 89.6.

Denver linebacker Von Miller recovered a fumble by Rams quarterback Jared Goff on a sack by Steelers defensive end Cameron Heyward that sealed the win.

In 2011, the Pro Bowl drew an average audience of 20.6 million viewers - all of which probably spent majority of their time complaining about it on social networking sites.

"It feels good that the coaches dialed it up and had a lot of trust in me, but it was a team effort", said Walker, the game's offensive MVP.

Hill, meanwhile, was more excited about the additional prize money he and the rest of the AFC players received for winning - $64,000 per man, compared to $32,000 per man for the losing NFC squad.

But Trawick understands he wouldn't have gotten to the Pro Bowl if the Patriots hadn't gotten to the Super Bowl, which triggered the need for a replacement for Slater. After 400 catches, 4,038 yards, 22 touchdowns and three Pro Bowl selections in the first four years of his career, he's a pending free agent who will be in high demand if the Dolphins let him walk. The impact of his play should make it easy for one of his defensive rushing specialists like Demarcus Lawrence to get after less-mobile guys like Philip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger, earning him some individual hardware as well.

Americans kicker Chris Boswell booted a 41-yard field goal and Graham Gano responded from 43 for the Nationals.

But then Landry got Kerrigan - albeit with a little bit of rules controversy; Kerrigan thought caught a Landry throw, but dropped his own ball in the process which is an elimination. However, Peterson ended the drive when he intercepted Smith in the corner of the end zone. The play temporarily preserved a 23-17 lead for the NFC.
