Hester, Peppers help NFC to victory

HONOLULU -- The Bears' Devin Hester and Julius Peppers helped the NFC to a 55-41 win over the AFC in the Pro Bowl on Sunday at Aloha Stadium. The 55 points matched a Pro Bowl record.

Hester made two catches for 27 yards and returned five kickoffs for 100 yards. On a third-quarter return, Hester fielded the kick and tried to hand it off to Washington’s DeAngelo Hall, but the ball fell to the turf and Jacksonville’s Montell Owens recovered and ran it in for an AFC touchdown.

Peppers finished with two tackles and a sack.
