So far there has been very little defense played in the 2012 Pro Bowl as both Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers have thrown for more than 140 yards and two touchdowns each. Both teams have seen a ton of passing and the result is a 28-28 tie as each team has four passing touchdowns.
Ben Roethlisberger has also had a solid day as the AFC starter before he retired to the bench. Roethlisberger threw for 181 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but he and Phillip Rivers have each thrown an interception so far. With all the passing, the receivers in the game are naturally having a huge day.
Jimmy Graham, Tony Gonzalez, and Larry Fitzgerald each have over 70 yards receiving for the NFC. Fitzgerald caught the game's first two touchdowns. The AFC would not be outdone, as River threw his second touchdown pass of the game on the final play of the first half to tie the score as time expired.
