Sproles scores TD, Team Irvin wins Pro Bowl

The NFL's annual meet of top players in Hawaii commenced on Sunday with the Pro Bowl taking place in Honolulu between two teams drafted by Hall-of-Famers Michael Irvin and Jerry Rice.

Team Irvin claimed a 49-27 win over Team Rice.

The Eagles had four representatives at the game: running back/special teamer Darren Sproles, tackle Jason Peters, defensive lineman Fletcher Cox and safety Malcolm Jenkins.

Sproles had two carries for 12 yards and one reception for two yards that resulted in a touchdown. Jenkins recorded on tackle. Cox recorded three tackles.

Russell Wilson was 8-for-12 for 164 yards and three touchdown passes in earning offensive MVP. Seattle's Michael Bennett was the defensive MVP, recording one sack.

This leaves just the Super Bowl left in the NFL schedule before the offseason begins for all teams. Super Bowl 50 takes place between the Carolina Panthers and Denver Broncos at Levi's Stadium in San Francisco on Sunday with kickoff coming at 6:30 p.m.
