Chargers Players Played Well in the Pro Bowl

facebooktwitterreddit

I won’t lie, I never have been too interested in watching the Pro Bowl, but I did catch bits and pieces of the game today. Philip Rivers was moving the ball around and threw for a pair of touchdown passes. One of them was to Antonio Gates and the other was to the Pro Bowl MVP Brandon Marshall. Ryan Mathews saw a lot of action and Eric Weddle was active throughout the game.

Rivers led all quarterbacks with 190 yards passing and his pair of TD passes. Vincent Jackson finished the game with 4 receptions for 64 yards. Ryan Mathews led the AFC in carries and finished with 35 yards rushing. Gates finished with 3 catches for 67 yards and Weddle had a pair of picks and a nice little lateral flip to Derrick Johnson for a score.

It was what the Pro Bowl always is: A lot of offense and the best in the game just having fun in an exhibition game. The defense lays back and won’t try to hard to make a tackle… except for maybe Weddle.

I didn’t get to see much of it, so share your thoughts on the Pro Bowl and how the Chargers did in the comments below. Here are some pics from the game:
