MIAMI (AP) - Thanks to the Pro Bowl, the scoreboard in Miami is all warmed up for the Super Bowl.
Long gains were the rule and hard hitting was the exception Sunday night as the AFC all-stars beat the NFC 41-34.
Light showers fell for much of the game, stirring memories of a rainy Super Bowl in Miami three years ago, but the weather failed to slow either offense. The AFC's Matt Schaub and the NFC's Aaron Rodgers threw two touchdown passes each, and DeSean Jackson caught two scoring passes for the NFC. The Broncos' Brandon Marshall caught a 23-yard touchdown pass.
Spectators included the Pro Bowl players from the Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints. Peyton Manning and Drew Brees took the night off because they'll meet on the same field in the Super Bowl next Sunday.
