Kyler Murray throws 3 TD passes in Pro Bowl

He had the best statistical game of all the quarterbacks in the Pro Bowl on Sunday but it came in a losing effort, as the AFC won 41-35.

The NFL’s top players were together in Las Vegas for the 2022 Pro Bowl. Five Arizona Cardinals players were in the Pro Bowl and quarterback Kyler Murray had the best statistical game on the field, although the NFC did lose the game 41-35 to the AFC.

Murray completed 18-of-27 passes for 160 yards, three touchdowns and one interception.

He threw touchdown passes to Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans, Atlanta Falcons rookie tight end Kyler Pitts and Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook. He also completed a two-point conversion to Dallas Cowboys receiver CeeDee Lamb, Murray’s former Oklahoma teammate in college.

Murray also threw a pick-six in the first quarter. Indianapolis Colts Darius Leonard picked him off and returned it 45 yards for a touchdown.

NFC quarterbacks threw four interceptions and AFC quarterbacks threw three.

The other Cardinals players in the Pro Bowl didn’t do much.

Running back James Conner ran the ball three times for three yards and caught the ball twice for 13 yards.

Tackle D.J. Humphries played 46 snaps.

Neither linebacker Chandler Jones nor safety Budda Baker amassed any statistics in the game. Jones played 49 snaps and Baker 38.

Studs and duds from the 2022 Pro Bowl

Here are our studs and duds from the 2022 Pro Bowl.

The NFL’s annual all-star game has finally devolved into a slopfest. In the first half alone, the quarterbacks threw six interceptions. Fans were also treated to drops, missed cues and no tackling effort at all. In the end the AFC beat the NFC, winning by a score of 41-35.

Here are our studs and duds from the 2022 Pro Bowl.

2022 Pro Bowl: Russell Wilson throws game’s sixth interception of first half

Russell Wilson has the latest.

Turns out nobody is taking the 2022 Pro Bowl seriously, least of all the quarterbacks. With the exception of the Chargers’ rising star Justin Herbert, the QBs who have taken the field have all been extremely careless with the ball, resulting in a flurry of ugly turnovers.

The tone was set early by Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray, whose first pass of the game was deflected and nearly picked off by Maxx Crosby of the Raiders. Murray ended that possession with a pick-six to Colts linebacker Darius Leonard, anyway. With a few minutes to go in the first half, both teams have combined for six interceptions. Russell Wilson has the latest.

That’s Wilson’s second pick of the game, but the first was not his fault. That  pass was deflected off the hands of 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk.

Anyway, if this is the way the Pro Bowl is going to be played the NFL would be better off just cancelling the whole thing. Embrace the skills competitions and add more of them.

Update:

The AFC leads 28-21 at halftime.

Russell Wilson robbed of touchdown by 2 drops from NFC team at 2022 Pro Bowl

The AFC leads the NFC 14-13 going into the second quarter.

Sometimes there’s only so much a quarterback can do. Seahawks star Russell Wilson is going through it today at the 2022 Pro Bowl. Wilson is the third NFC QB to make an appearance in the game after Kyler Murray and Kirk Cousins both threw interceptions.

Wilson led a drive into the red zone but came up with nothing thanks to a couple of drops from his receivers.

First, Justin Jefferson of the Vikings dropped a pass that hit him in the numbers.

Then, 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk had one bounce off his fingertips and into the hands of Patriots cornerback J.C. Jackson.

The AFC leads the NFC 14-13 going into the second quarter.

LOOK: Robert Quinn, Jakeem Grant representing Bears at Pro Bowl

Here’s a look at Bears EDGE Robert Quinn and RS Jakeem Grant at Pro Bowl practice.

While there wasn’t much to celebrate during the Bears’ 2021 season, there were some impressive individual performances that certainly have the future looking bright.

Edge rusher Robert Quinn and wide receiver/return specialist Jakeem Grant were both named to the Pro Bowl for their impressive seasons, where they proved to be among the best at their positions.

Quinn recorded a single-season franchise record 18.5 sacks, where he registered at least half a sack in 14 of 16 games he played. He recorded 13 sacks in the final nine games. He also totaled 49 tackles and 17 tackles-for-loss, a team-high. It was a sensational bounce-back season after a rough first year in 2020, where Quinn totaled just two sacks.

Grant was a late addition to the roster in an Oct. 5 trade with the Dolphins, but he made an immediate impact as a return specialist. In 11 games with the Bears, Grant averaged 11.9 yards per return, third in the NFL, with one touchdown on 26 returns. He also averaged 23.4 yards per kickoff return on 23 returns, which ranked 11th.

With Pro Bowl week in full swing, the Bears Twitter account shared a look at Quinn and Grant both in Las Vegas for Pro Bowl practice on Thursday:

The 2022 Pro Bowl will be played Sunday, Feb. 6 in Las Vegas at Allegiant Stadium.
