As one career ends, another may just be taking off.
Moments of the Pro Bowl:
Woodson played offense in his last game before retiring, but he wasn't a target on his lone offensive play. The Raiders defensive back didn't see much action on defense, either, in the final NFL game of his illustrious 18-year career. Woodson's second-quarter offensive play appeared to inspire others on Teams Irvin and Rice (coached by Hall of Famer Jerry Rice) to play different positions later in the game. Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. lined up at free safety for a series, Richard Sherman ran a play on offense and Falcons running back Devonta Freeman recorded a tackle on defense.
Travis Kelce continued an offseason full of momentum as he caught two touchdown passes. The Chiefs tight end's first score came barely five minutes into the game on a corner route in the back of the end zone. After the 4-yard grab, he performed a quick touchdown dance in front of Beckham. Kelce's Pro Bowl outing came two days after he signed a five-year, $46 million contract extension with Kansas City. It also was announced last week that he would be the subject of a dating reality show.
Sherman's offensive play ... backfired. When the Seahawks cornerback came in on offense he lined up at receiver, where he was pitched the football on a reverse. With little room to maneuver, he ran backward several yards and went back to his right. After losing 22 yards, Sherman was finally wrapped up by his Seattle defensive teammate, linebacker Bobby Wagner.
Sherman had a fake punt thrown past him too. In the second quarter, Rams punter Johnny Hekker completed a 10-yard pass to Seahawks receiver Tyler Lockett on the fake for a first down. In coverage on Lockett? Sherman. It was one of two fake punts Team Rice executed, with Bengals special-teams player Cedric Peerman converting a 6-yard run for a first down on the other. A backup running back, Peerman didn't have a carry for Cincinnati in the regular season.
Beckham teamed up again with Jarvis Landry and neither did much. The former LSU teammates were on Team Rice together. Between them, they had just five catches -- albeit for 115 yards -- and only one was a true highlight-reel snag. Landry's 31-yard touchdown grab in the fourth quarter required him to drag his feet in bounds.
The only injury was to Tyler Eifert, who dropped a throw from Winston in the fourth quarter that was delivered into the back of the end zone. After Eifert stretched for the throw, he lost possession as he came down and then hobbled off the field. He left with a lower left leg injury that will require more testing when he gets back to Cincinnati, according to Bengals.com.
