This year's Pro Bowl became a home coming for a couple of NFL all stars. Former Saint Louis offensive lineman Olin Kreutz made his first ever Pro bowl appearance.
"When they announced my name, I can't describe that feeling, you work your whole life you put a lot of work into this and to make it here, like I said is awesome. The loss, you don't really think about it," said Kreutz.
Former Hawaii kicker Jason Elam had better days at Aloha Stadium. Today he hit just 1 out of 3 field goals. "That was nasty, I don't like having performances like that but fortunately it was an exhibition game," said Elam.
When it was all said and done, MVP of this year's Pro Bowl went to Oakland Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon, his second award in two years.
"It was a lot of fun and I'll tell you what, it was just a great team effort today. The offensive line played great, the backs, defense coming up with some big turn overs, it was just a lot of fun today," said Gannon.
But the play of the day went to Ty Law. After intercepting Donovan McNabb in the fourth quarter, he ran it back and then lateralled it to Ray Lewis who fought his way into the end zone. And that sealed the win for the AFC.
Law says, "I was actually trying to take it in myself but at that point in the game, it was kinda crazy so I seen Ray sittin there by himself, I had a guy hanging on my leg. I knew once Ray got it there was nobody that was gonna stop him from going into the end zone."
"That was the play of the game," insists Junior Seau.
