SAN DIEGO -- In the battle of Hall of Famers, receiver Jerry Rice's team outlasted cornerback Deion Sanders' squad 22-21 in the first Pro Bowl pitting two all-star rosters selected by the former NFL standouts, who served as captains.

Rice's team closed to within a point on a DeMarco Murray 20-yard touchdown reception from Alex Smith. Team Rice then took the lead for good on former San Diego Chargers running back Mike Tolbert's 2-point conversation.

Team Sanders got into field-goal position, but Baltimore kicker Justin Tucker's game-winning attempt from 67 yards away fell short.

San Diego signal caller Philip Rivers finished 8-of-13 for 94 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown pass to Josh Gordon. Rivers also threw two interceptions.

Chargers safety Eric Weddle finished with a tackle for Team Sanders.
