AFC conquers Las Vegas and defeats the NFC in the Pro Bowl's return

The return of the Pro Bowl has been a party in Las Vegas. The AFC, featuring young prodigies like Justin Herbert, Patrick Mahomes and Mac Jones, defeated the NFC on Sunday at Allegiant Stadium.

Herbert won the offensive MVP award after passing for 98 yards and finding the Baltimore tight end for two TDs in the first half of the Los Angeles Chargers star's first Pro Bowl appearance. New England Patriots rookie Mac Jones passed for 112 yards, threw a touchdown pass and did a memorable rendition of the Griddy dance.

The two quarterbacks had fun at the annual NFL All-Star Game, which returned after a year-long hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Another figure in the game was Maxx Crosby, who won the defensive MVP award with two sacks and three tackles for loss. On the NFC side, Kyler Murray had some trouble. The Arizona quarterback threw for 160 yards and three touchdowns, suffering an interception.

The informal rules to prevent excessive violence

The Pro Bowl Game has moved to Las Vegas for the first time after a four-year run in Orlando. Although tickets weren't sold out at Allegiant Stadium, a crowd cheered the Raiders and booed their AFC West rivals.

Vegas hosted the Pro Bowl for the first time on the same weekend as its first NHL All-Star Game, a pay-per-boxing show starring welterweight Keith Thurman and a UFC show behind closed doors at the Apex gym.

Ground tackles were rare, while both teams played effectively with two-handed touch, and neither defense put up more than light pressure.

In another attempt at violence-reducing innovation, the Pro Bowl was played with no kickoffs. The game started with the NFC offense on its own 15 in the so-called "spot and choose" method of eliminating dangerous kickoffs from football.

According to NFL, the AFC players took home $80,000 apiece, while the NFC got $40,000.
