Team Irvin Wins Pro Bowl

Team Irvin Wins Pro Bowl NFL Shield (NFL)(GLENDALE, Az.) -- The NFL's annual All-Star competition concluded with Team Irvin defeating Team Carter 32-28. Under the leadership of Hall of Fame wide receivers, Michael Irvin and Cris Carter, the NFL's most popular players put on a show for the fans. Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt and Detroit Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford took home MVP honors for their respective side of the ball. "I just tried to enjoy it," Watt said, who intercepted a pass and recovered a fumble in the game. "That's what the Pro Bowl is all about, giving the fans a good show. Everybody worked so hard to get here, you want to enjoy yourself and play some good ball. Guys are dancing around and having a good time, that's what it's all about." Stafford, who tossed two touchdowns and threw for 316 yards in the game, said: "It was a blast. To able to play with the best in the world is a whole lot of fun, and everybody is such good people, too. I am out here having a good time." This year, the Pro Bowl was held in the host city of the Super Bowl, Glendale, Arizona, taking a one year break from its usual destination of Honolulu, Hawaii.

Jaguars’ Sen’Derrick Marks Rips the Pro Bowl Voting Process

Jaguars’ Sen’Derrick Marks Rips the Pro Bowl Voting Process Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(JACKSONVILLE, Fla.) -- Jacksonville Jaguars defensive tackle Sen'Derrick Marks is one of the better defensive tackles in the NFL, which is why he's left questioning the NFL as to why he wasn't named to the Pro Bowl. Now in his sixth season, Marks is having a career year. In 15 games, Marks has 42 tackles and 8.5 sacks, the second-most by an interior lineman in the NFL. Even though Marks was voted in as an alternate, he feels it still taints the process for him. "I won't hold it in high regards like I used to," he said. "I don't get it. I don't understand it. It's more reputation than based on what you did on the field that season. It's a political thing. It shows that the NFL is all about money. It's not about players and their performances." It could be possible that Marks was held back due to the fact that he plays for a 3-12 Jaguars, and fan voting makes up one-third of the ballot. Marks did add if he does wound up getting invited to the game, he would participate. Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright 2014 ABC News Radio
