You know what this Pro Bowl needed?

The NFL's annual exercise in irrelevant football got a dousing of rain on Sunday to add to the chaos of the meaningless Pro Bowl.

The AFC threatened to pitch a shutout for the first time in the game's history, leading 20-0 in the fourth quarter.

Like it or loathe it, and many are in the latter camp, the event has been part of the NFL's landscape in one guise or the other for over half a century and never fails to generate debate. As the AFC's starting quarterback, he completed 7 of 14 passes for 1 touchdown and 156 passing yards. Maybe you'll connect with a fellow Pro Bowl enthusiast.

The Super Bowl is still a week away.


Minnesota Vikings Adam Thielen and Davante Adams of the Packers are the standout receivers, while Kyele Fuller of the Bears and Leighton Vander Esche of the Cowboys are among the defensive players. Anthony Sherman was the only player to go for over 100 yards from scrimmage with a surprising 92 receiving yards on 3 catches and 11 more rushing yards on 4 attempts.

The 2019 Pro Bowl has proved to be the league's typical lackluster All-Star Game, but that's not to say there haven't been at least a handful of noteworthy moments.

New York Giants rookie running back Saquon Barkley and New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara also played defense.

While headlines continue to circle around the Super Bowl and Antonio Brown's antics, the Pro Bowl is a good reminder that football is still a game we love to watch.

While Brady won the Super Bowl in his rookie year, Mahomes almost had the Chiefs on that stage in his first season as a starter.
