Live Pro Bowl Talk Thread

Series record

The NFC leads the all-time matchup, 20-19, after its win last year.

Last time: Larry Fitzgerald caught two touchdown passes as the NFC rallied past the AFC for a 31-20 victory.

Three things to watch

The MVP chase: Could this be the year that a special teams performer finally takes home the trophy? The last time a member of the special teams unit won the esteemed award was Steve Tasker in 1993. With DeSean Jackson getting double duty as both a receiver and returner, it is possible the exciting Eagle may snap that special-teams MVP drought.

Youthful exuberance: First-time Pro Bowl players tend to be the most excited about the opportunity to participate, and often have big games. With newcomers littering both conference’s rosters, there is a solid chance one of them could steal the limelight. It will be interesting to see which one seizes the moment.

CJ2K’s race against time: Titans RB Chris Johnson set a new NFL record for yards from scrimmage during the regular season, and that was with teams game planning specifically to stop him. In a more relaxed setting like the Pro Bowl, Johnson could seemingly rush for unlimited yardage. Can he gain 200, maybe even 300 total yards? – Jason Feller
