NFC blows out AFC in Pro Bowl
NFL ASSOCIATED PRESS
Sack-happy defensive end J.J. Watt went out for a pass as a wide receiver, retiring center Jeff Saturday snapped to two Mannings on opposite teams and the NFC blew past the AFC 62-35 in a Pro Bowl that could be the league's last.
Whether the NFL's all-star game will return or not is a question league officials will ponder the next few months. And, the players gave plenty to consider on both sides of the argument Sunday.
The NFC was unstoppable on offense, with nearly each player putting up fantasy-type lines in limited play. The AFC, meanwhile, had five turnovers and scored most of its points well after the game was no longer competitive.
Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph was voted the game's MVP with 122 yards and a touchdown.
Watt, who had 20a-x sacks for Houston, lined up as a wide receiver on the AFC's third play from scrimmage, but missed a pass from Denver quarterback Peyton Manning.
Titans eye Williams: A person familiar with the situation says the Titans have talked with suspended defensive coordinator Gregg Williams and are interested in hiring him.
The person said Sunday Titans coach Mike Munchak has talked with Williams about a position on his staff. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the Titans do not discuss personnel moves until they are finalized.
Dooley to Cowboys: Former Tennessee coach Derek Dooley is headed to the Dallas Cowboys as wide receivers coach.
The Cowboys reported the move on their website Saturday night. Dooley will replace Jimmy Robinson, who could stay with Dallas in another capacity.
Dooley was fired at Tennessee in November.
