Finally the 2013 results of the Pro Bowl is here, NFC win over AFC at a score of 62-35 margin Sunday afternoon in Honolulu.

Back-to-back touchdown throws from Peyton Manning and Drew Brees locked the game at seven just minutes into the action.

But, surprisingly, defense prevailed and the opening quarter ended in that 7-7 tie.

NFC has it’s lead when Vikings kicker Blair Walsh booted a 48-yard FG in the opening moments of the second quarter. Then after some minutes later, Chiefs LB Derrick Johnson picked off Eli Manning and returned it to the house 42 yards for a touchdown.

The second half was all NFC, as Russell Wilson picked up where Eli Manning left off.

In the process, the NFC set the single-game Pro Bowl record for points scored with 62, after Minnesota FB Jerome Felton punched it in from three yards out midway through the fourth quarter.

Kyle Rudolph ended up winning the official MVP honors for his five-catch, 122 yard performance for the NFC. He also grabbed one touchdown and made some excellent grabs to help spark the NFC's offense.
