Browns shine at Pro Bowl
The Browns didn’t take part in the post season as a team once again.
However, the Browns sent six players to the Pro Bowl and they represented the Browns well. In fact, the Browns accounted for two of the six touchdowns.
Tight end Jordan Cameron scored the go ahead touchdown with 4:41 to play on a 12-yard pass from Nick Foles to give Team Sanders to a 21-14 lead. However, Team Rice scored a touchdown by DeMarco Murray and a two-point conversion by Mike Tolbert with 41 seconds to play to give Team Rice the 22-21 win. Josh Gordon caught two passes for 40 yards to set up Team Rice on their game-winning drive. Gordon finished with a game-leading six receptions for 66 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown reception from Philip Rivers. He also had an end around for 13 yards to account for 79 yards, overall.
Cameron finished with three receptions for 27 yards, including the touchdown.
Joe Haden was credited with an interception as he wrestled the ball from DeSean Jackson. In the first quarter, Jackson was able to get behind Haden for a touchdown. Safety T.J. Ward made a nice tackle on a punt return and then hit Gordon hard on the end around by Gordon, who flipped up into the air.
In the non-conferenced Pro Bowl, three were on the team captained by Deion Sanders and three on the team captained by Jerry Rice. Center Alex Mack, Cameron and Ward were on the losing team, while Gordon, Haden and tackle Joe Thomas were on Team Rice.
Mack and Cameron were starters for Team Sanders, while Gordon, Thomas and Haden all started for Team Rice.
