On Sunday, the NFL’s Pro Bowl game was played (as if anyone cares).
In the game — which could easily be mistaken for a touch-football game to first time viewers — the Denver Broncos were represented by wide receiver Brandon Lloyd and cornerback Champ Bailey.
Neither Bronco fared too well, as Bailey seemingly let NFC running back Adrian Peterson walk into the endzone on one play, and Lloyd uncharacteristically dropped several balls and gave little effort to prevent one from being intercepted.
The AFC West as a whole wasn’t represented very well, as San Diego’s and Kansas City’s quarterbacks Phillip Rivers and Matt Cassel each threw two interceptions.
In the end, the NFC defeated the AFC by a score of 55 to 41. Cornerback Champ Bailey did finish the game with a team second-best 4 tackles and Brandon Lloyd caught one pass for a 15-yard gain and first down.
It was pretty much the norm of the Pro Bowl, no pass rush, running backs running through arm tackles and quarterbacks heaving up passes. It was at times entertaining though, particularly the final score of the game.
