Three players who filled up the box score at the Pro Bowl
The 2016 Pro Bowl was filled with high-flying theatrics, and now it's time to salute the statistical standouts who made them happen. Featured this week are a Super Bowl-winning quarterback, a tight end who just signed a big contract extension and a slightly under-the-radar wide receiver.
Russell Wilson, quarterback, Seattle Seahawks
Russell Wilson was the best passer at the Pro Bowl. As the starting quarterback for Team Irvin, Wilson completed eight of his 12 pass attempts (66.7 percent) for 164 yards. He also threw three touchdowns and no interceptions, leading his squad to a 49-27 victory. The other five quarterbacks at the Pro Bowl combined to throw the same amount of touchdowns (seven) as interceptions.
Travis Kelce, tight end, Kansas City Chiefs
After signing a five-year, $46 million contract extension last week, Travis Kelce played like one of the NFL's best tight ends at the Pro Bowl. He caught five passes for 91 yards and two touchdowns in a losing effort for Team Rice. His first touchdown came on a four-yard toss from New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning; the second one was the result of a 10-yard strike from Oakland Raiders quarterback David Carr.
Allen Robinson, wide receiver, Jacksonville Jaguars
In a game that featured Julio Jones, Odell Beckham Jr., and A.J. Green, it was Allen Robinson who stood tallest among the wide receivers at the Pro Bowl. He caught two passes for 105 yards, including a 50-yard bomb of a touchdown from Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. When discussing the best young pass-catchers in the game, don't forget to include Robinson -- he's only 22 years old.
