2012 Pro Bowl Score Update: Offense Aplenty As The NFC And AFC Are Tied 28-28 At Halftime

So far there has been very little defense played in the 2012 Pro Bowl as both Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers have thrown for more than 140 yards and two touchdowns each. Both teams have seen a ton of passing and the result is a 28-28 tie as each team has four passing touchdowns.

Ben Roethlisberger has also had a solid day as the AFC starter before he retired to the bench. Roethlisberger threw for 181 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but he and Phillip Rivers have each thrown an interception so far. With all the passing, the receivers in the game are naturally having a huge day.

Jimmy Graham, Tony Gonzalez, and Larry Fitzgerald each have over 70 yards receiving for the NFC. Fitzgerald caught the game's first two touchdowns. The AFC would not be outdone, as River threw his second touchdown pass of the game on the final play of the first half to tie the score as time expired.

Pro Bowl 2012: Roster And Preview

The NFL has moved the Pro bowl to the week between the conference championship games and the Super Bowl, giving football fans a nice appetizer before a full week of Super Bowl coverage. This year's game takes place tonight at 7pm in Honolulu, and the Browns have one representative on the islands. Left tackle Joe Thomas is making his fifth trip in his five year NFL career to Hawaii.

Thomas will be protecting Ben Roethlisberger's blind side to start on Sunday:

The AFC team's starting quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will square off against the NFC team, led by Aaron Rodgers. On paper, it looks like the NFC would have an advantage in the passing game, with Rodgers and backup quarterbacks Drew Brees and Cam Newton looking to hook up with targets like Larry Fitzgerald, Steve Smith, Jimmy Graham, Tony Gonzalez and Greg Jennings. Meanwhile, the AFC running game includes weapons like Maurice Jones-Drew and WIllis McGahee.
