In a Pro Bowl that pitted Team Michael Irvin against Team Jerry Rice, it was only fitting that the two teams would combine for 10 receiving touchdowns and over 800 passing yards.

Seattle’s Russell Wilson threw for 164 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions as Team Irvin rolled to a 49-27 victory over Team Rice. Once Wilson, who was named offensive most valuable player, left the game, Teddy Bridgewater of Minnesota and Jameis Winston of Tampa Bay each threw for over 100 yards and two scores for Irvin’s squad.

Jacksonville’s Allen Robinson and Delanie Walker of Tennessee each hauled in touchdown receptions of more than 50 yards in the third quarter to put Irvin’s team well in control.

Kansas City’s Travis Kelce was the busiest receiver on Team Rice, grabbing five passes for 91 yards and two TDs.

Seattle defensive end and Honolulu resident Michael Bennett, who enjoyed his first Pro Bowl by serving as an ambassador for the game and state all week long at charity events, was named the game’s defensive MVP.
