Did You Like the NFL’s New Pro Bowl Format? [FAN Poll of the Day]
The NFL in a desperate move to bring fans back to watching their version of the All-Star game as they held their annual Pro Bowl on Sunday. This year they tried a different format in which two legends, Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders, choose their respective teams. The picks made earlier in the week created match-ups that pitted usual teammates against each other.
As far as the game goes, it was defiantly more competitive as the defenses were the talk of the game. In Sunday’s contest their were eight turnovers forced, including six interceptions and two forced fumbles. The quarterbacks were no longer “wearing the red jerseys” this year either as there were nine total sacks in the game as well. Rice’s team would eventually go on to win the game thanks to a 20-yard touchdown reception by Dallas’ DeMarco Murray with 41 seconds left. Carolina Panther’s running back Mike Tolbert plunged into the end zone for a 2-point conversion to give Rice a 22-21 win over Sanders in the first schoolyard-style Pro Bowl on Sunday. That brings us to our FAN poll of the day.
