The outcome of the Pro Bowl was never in doubt after the NFC ran out to a 42-0 lead and ended up dominating the AFC 55-41 Sunday. Despite the AFC’s trouble scoring early, the Kansas City Chiefs representatives helped provide some points late to make the score look much more respectable.
Matt Cassel, Dwayne Bowe and Jamaal Charles put together an “all-Chiefs” drive at the end of the first half that accounted for the AFC’s first touchdown and only one on the ground.
On that drive, Cassel connected with Bowe for a 10 yard completion, but the star was Charles. The young back had five carries for 57 yards, including an eight yarder right at the pylon for a score.
Later, Cassel completed touchdown passes to Montell Owens and in a bizarre 67-yard hook-and-lateral play to Cleveland Browns center Alex Mack.
The Chiefs quarterback also had his fair share of troubles, along with the rest of the AFC signal callers. Cassel threw two ugly interceptions with the second one taken to the house by Carolina’s Jon Beason.
