The AFC rallied from a 20-3 deficit behind two touchdown catches by Delanie Walker to beat the NFC 24-23 in the Pro Bowl on Sunday in Orlando. Here's a look at the scene and the action:

Hard to see but a steady rain is falling at Camping World Stadium now.
I don't think anything gets more rugged or American than a custom Mike Alstott jersey with the American flag at the Pro Bowl. Nice job, Robert.

Geno Atkins checking his phone on the sideline before kickoff. Question: Where does he put it when he's on the field?
Some early rain here at the Pro Bowl but nothing to keep these fans from coming out and seeing their squads.
Pretty ingenious by fans looking for autographs near the tunnel. Hanging items to sign by string.

We've got a downpour at the Pro Bowl so fans are flooding into the lower levels of Camping World Stadium.

Harrison Smith records the 2nd-longest interception return in Pro Bowl history, only Deion Sanders had a longer one. Smith's was the longest ever returned for a TD, breaking the 67-yard mark set by Ty Law in 1999.

Drew Brees told me that his sons had to pass a wet-ball test in order to participate as ball boys for the Pro Bowl. Sean Payton knew it was going to rain so he made that part of the deal. "It was the experience of a lifetime for them," Brees said. "It's what made my trip, to watch them interact with some of the players, the guys they look up to so much."

Jaguars DT Malik Jackson just tried to be helpful and marked off a false start penalty on the NFC. He took a few more paces than was appropriate though. Have to give him credit for trying to get a few extra yards.
Delanie Walker caught a TD pass from Alex Smith in the Pro Bowl. He's caught a TD in each of his three Pro Bowl appearances, per Titans. Walker is Mr. Consistent for the Titans so makes sense it transfers into the Pro Bowl.
Perhaps Deion Jones and Jarvis Landry have an 'LSU gentlemen's agreement' over tackling at the Pro Bowl because Jones just pushed Landry backwards by about 20 feet after Landry caught a pass.
Delanie Walker with the diving grab for a TD from Derek Carr. It's Walker's second TD of the day to put the AFC ahead 24-23. Could end up being the game-winner. Big day.
In a turnover-laden Pro Bowl, every AFC quarterback -- Ben Roethlisberger, Alex Smith and Derek Carr -- has thrown at least one interception. Except for Antonio Brown (if he counts), because he attempted one pass.
Offensive MVP Delanie Walker and Defensive MVP Von Miller each get a Genesis.
I asked Von Miller about playing with some added intensity despite it being an exhibition game. He told me, "I go all out all the time."
In addition to the $64,000 that each winning player receives, Delanie Walker and Von Miller also get a luxury Genesis automobile for being named MVPs. Walker was especially excited about that. “I think I’m going to get the black,” Walker said. “But I think we can get any car we want. It doesn’t matter. It’s not just that car. They say you can pick a car off the lot. I’m going to keep that car. Why would I sell it? It’s free. I’m about to drive it so much. That’s going to be my every-day car.”
