Pro Bowl decided on late TD, 2-point conversion

Updated:
HONOLULU -

 

DeMarco Murray caught a 20-yard pass for a touchdown and Mike Tolbert plunged into the end zone for a 2-point conversion with less than 1 minute to give Jerry Rice a win over Deion Sanders in the first schoolyard-style Pro Bowl Sunday night.

Baltimore's Justin Tucker missed a 67-yard field goal on the game's final play after missing a 66-yarder earlier in the game.

The touchdown and conversion gave Rice a comeback after Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles threw a 12-yard touchdown to Cleveland tight end Jordan Cameron with less than 5 minutes to play to give Sanders a 21-14 lead.

The Cameron and Murray touchdowns were the only scores of the second half in a game that had eight turnovers - including six interceptions - and nine sacks.

The rosters for this year's Pro Bowl were picked by Hall of Famers Sanders and Rice. For the most part, Sanders chose younger players with less Pro Bowl experience, saying, "there's a certain point in your career where you get full and you're not hungry."
