NFL Pro Bowl Score: 35-0, Matt Ryan Has Two Touchdown Passes In NFC Rout

In a game oddly reminiscent of every Super Bowl in the late 1980s and early 1990s, this game has turned into a one-sided affair. It was 21-0 before the NFC defense forced a fifth turnover.

Former Atlanta Falcons and current Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall stripped New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker and returned the fumble 34 yards for a touchdown to give the NFC a 28-0 lead in the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl.

Then Matt Ryan found Larry Fitzgerald for a 25-yard touchdown putting the NFC up 35-0.

Current or former Falcons are responsible for four of the five touchdowns scored in this game. Ovie Mughelli scored in the first quarter and Tony Gonzalez and Hall added touchdowns in the second before Ryan threw his second touchdown pass.

Also, Tony Gonzalez clowned on Jay Glazer’s physique during a sideline interview. There was a tense moment where Glazer appeared to ponder the likelihood of challenging Gonzalez in the Octagon.
