NFL Pro Bowl flag football final score, highlights: NFC takes down AFC in revamped all-star game

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2023 Pro Bowl Games champion: Eli Manning and the NFC.

The younger Manning led his team to victory over Peyton and the AFC by way of two victories in the flag football round of competition, netting 12 points in the overall competition. Even so, the NFC needed to overcome a 21-15 deficit to start the final competition after the AFC five skills competitions and the second flag football game.

Geno Smith led the NFC to a 33-27 victory in the first game over Tyler Huntley and the AFC, while Trevor Lawrence led a comeback performance in Game 2 over Jared Goff and the NFC, 18-13. The NFC overcame the six-point deficit in Game 3, with Kirk Cousins-led NFC beating Derek Carr and Co. to win the whole thing 35-33.

Pro Bowl flag football score, updates and highlights

All times Eastern.

Final: NFC 35, AFC 33

6:29 p.m.: Eli Manning and Co. beat older brother Peyton and the AFC 35-33 in the new and improved 2023 Pro Bowl Games.

6:27 p.m.: That is indeed the call and that will end the game! Poyer held Hockenson (though even if he hadn’t, Fitzpatrick would have been penalized for an illegal rush). AFC coach Peyton Manning is livid, arguing that Cousins should be penalized for taking a knee.

6:27 p.m.: Cousins’ ball falls incomplete but there’s a flag in the end zone … is this game going to end on defensive holding?

6:25 p.m.: Cousins to his Vikings teammate Jefferson for a decent gain, but the receiver is tackled short. That forces the AFC to use its final timeout with the NFC needing to convert fourth-and-goal at the 1.

6:24 p.m.: Cousins gets a small completion, forcing the AFC to use its first timeout.

6:23 p.m.: An incomplete pass stops the clock with a minute left in the game.

6:23 p.m.: Looks like the NFC is pretty much going to run this clock out with a running clock and the AFC having only two timeouts with which to work.

6:19 p.m.: Another halfback pass (this one from Jacobs) doesn’t work out. He threw it way behind the intended receiver and has it nearly picked off. The NFC gets the ball back 35-33 with just two minutes remaining.

6:18 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, AFC. Carr takes the blitz in stride and finds Knox in the flat for a touchdown and six points. The AFC is going for the 2-point conversion with the clock winding toward the two-minute warning.

6:17 p.m.: Turpin with another timely blitz to set up fourth-and-goal. This is a must-score opportunity for the AFC.

6:17 p.m.: Third-and-goal coming up after a Chase drop in the end zone and decent run by Josh Jacobs.

6:13 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, NFC. Cousins to Kittle for six! Then Cousins to Jefferson for the PAT! The NFC leads 35-27 in the final half of play.

6:13 p.m.: Cousins is leading the NFC on a dink-and-dunk drive.

6:11 p.m.: The NFC starts the second half with the ball, and can lengthen its lead with a score. Cousins promptly throws a near-interception to Bills safety Jordan Poyer.

First half: NFC 28, AFC 27

6:07 p.m.: Cousins hits Lamb for the 1-point conversion! That gives NFC a 28-27 halftime lead after starting the game down 21-15.

6:06 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, NFC. Cousins just tosses the ball to Juszczyk in the end zone, tying the game at 27-27 โ€” point-after attempt pending.

6:04 p.m.: Cousins connects with Juszczyk, but he’s downed at the 1-yard line. The NFC uses its second and final timeout of the game to set up a potential game-tying score heading into halftime with 3 seconds remaining.

6:03 p.m.: Cousins throws a backward pass to Juszczyk in the end zone; he then throws it to a wide open Jefferson for a big gain. Timeout NFC with 27 seconds left.

6:01 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, AFC. And there’s Carr’s first score of the game with a rolling touchdown pass to Chase. That gives the AFC the lead back with just 35 seconds remaining โ€” 27-21 following an incompletion on the 1-point attempt.

5:59 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, NFC. Cousins finds St. Brown, hero of the best catch event, to tie the game. But Cousins can’t connect with Kittle on the ensuing drive, keeping the score tied 21-21 with just 1:07 left in the half.

5:55 p.m.: Two-minute warning (1:57).

5:54 p.m.: Interception, AFC. No one wants to score! Cardinals safety Budda Baker picks Carr off and gives it back to the NFC with a chance to tie the game.

5:51 p.m.: Turnover on downs, NFC. The AFC returns the favor with a blitz from … Hill? Either way, it worked for the best: The AFC denies a scoring opportunity and takes over at its 1-yard line.

5:49 p.m.: Turnover on downs, AFC. Turpin comes on a blitz on fourth-and-mid to turn the ball over for the AFC. Now the NFC gets its chance with Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins leading the charge.

5:46 p.m.: The AFC starts with the ball, and Raiders quarterback Derek Carr gets the start. He connects with Diggs for a long gain, but it’s undone by an illegal shift.

5:45 p.m.: Remember, the AFC starts with a 21-15 lead as a result of the score from the previous skills competitions in the Pro Bowl Games.

Pro Bowl flag football score, updates and highlights

All times Eastern.

Final: AFC 18, NFC 13

4:48 p.m.: Turnover on downs, NFC. It ultimately doesn’t matter as Goff overthrows his intended target. The AFC wins Game 2 in a defensive struggle.

4:46 p.m.: The AFC had the NFC stopped short on fourth down, but offsetting penalties โ€” illegal blitz by the former and an illegal stiff-arm on the NFC โ€” gives the latter one more down with 31 seconds left.

4:45 p.m.: Things getting close here. NFC has fourth-and-19 and has only one timeout with 39 seconds left for the go-ahead score.

4:44 p.m.: Saints linebacker Demario Davis bats Lawrence’s pass down, keeping the AFC’s lead to just five. NFC can take the lead with a score.

4:40 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, AFC. Lawrence tries to go deep a few times, but finally hits Stefon Diggs over the top for a touchdown! He didn’t get both feet in bounds but it’s the Pro Bowl, so it’s fine. The two-minute warning is here, so the AFC will attempt the 2-point conversion after.

4:36 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, NFC. Goff hits Dalvin Cook for an easy touchdown, then threads the needle between Mosley and Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick for a go-ahead score. NFC leads 13-12.

4:33 p.m.: Interception, NFC! No score! The AFC gets a little tricky, throwing a backward pass to Stefon Diggs before he tries to throw it to Lawrence in the end zone. Trevon Diggs intercepts it and very nearly returns it for a score.

4:32 p.m.: Interception, AFC! Pat Surtain II jumps Goff’s route in defense of Justin Jefferson and returns it near the end zone, setting up an easy scoring opportunity.

4:32 p.m.: NFC starts the second half on offense, needing a score.

First half: AFC 12, NFC 6

4:27 p.m.: An incompletion ends the NFC’s scoring drive before the clock runs out, and it’ll have a 12-6 deficit to start the second half.

4:24 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, AFC. One play later, Lawrence hands the ball off to Henry on a zone read to give the AFC the lead. That’s a bit easier for Henry than on a typical NFL Sunday. AFC leads 12-6 over the NFC after Trevon Diggs blankets his older brother.

4:23 p.m.: Turnover on downs, NFC. Jets cornerback Justin Hardee Sr. blitzes on fourth down, causing Goff to stumble and put the ball on the ground. The AFC will take over at about the 19-yard line.

4:19 p.m.: There’s a two-minute warning in the first half. Not as high-scoring as Game 1.

4:17 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, AFC. Lawrence responds with a nice long drive to tie the game with an easy pitch-and-catch with Adams. The 1-point attempt is no good, and the conferences remain tied.

4:12 p.m.: INTERCEPTION RETURN FOR TOUCHDOWN, NFC. The NFC sends a blitz with Micah Parsons, forcing Lawrence to throw on the run to avoid the safety. Alexander picks it off and easily returns it for a touchdown. The 2-point conversion attempt between Goff and McCaffrey falls incomplete, giving the NFC a 6-0 lead.

4:11 p.m.: The AFC’s second snap hits the turf just short of the end zone, setting up third-and-mid … from the 2, for some reason.

4:10 p.m.: Some miscommunication between Lawrence and his intended pass-catcher, Stefon Diggs. The latter’s brother, Trevon Diggs, is in defense of the Bills receiver. Doubt there will be much slacking off on his part.

4:09 p.m.: The Jaguars’ Trevor Lawrence gets the second start at QB for the AFC, while Jared Goff will get the NFC nod.

4:08 p.m.: Here comes the second 7-on-7 flag football game. It’s all knotted up at 12 apiece following a win each by the NFC in two events between flag football games: The AFC won kick-tac-toe while the NFC won the gridiron gauntlet.

Pro Bowl flag football score, updates and highlights

All times Eastern.

Final: NFC 33, AFC 27

3:50 p.m.: FINAL: NFC wins Game 1 33-27 over the AFC after time runs out on the latter. That’s worth six points for the NFC in the overall standings, tying the Pro Bowl Games 9-9.

3:45 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, NFC. Smith finds Lamb again for the go-ahead score โ€” the conference declines a holding penalty on Ramsey, making the score 32-27. A successful 1-point conversion makes it 33-26 NFC with just 12 seconds left.

3:42 p.m.: Huntley connects with Bills tight end Dawson Knox for the successful point-after attempt, giving the AFC a 27-26 lead with 2:00 left to play in Game 1.

3:41 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, AFC. Huntley finds Chase all alone in the back of the end zone! Jaire Alexander stood idle as he watched the two play catch. AFC has a chance to take the lead back with a successful point-after conversion.

3:41 p.m.: Peyton Manning is arguing with refs over some sort of rule change. Either way, Huntley finds Derrick Henry for a first-down gain.

3:37 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, NFC. Turns out, none of that matters. Juszczyk tosses a flea-flicker back to Smith, who then finds him wide open underneath for another touchdown. The 1-point conversion is no good, though. NFC leads 26-20.

3:36 p.m.: A Smith touchdown is negated because he was in the “no-run zone.” He scrambled after C.J. Mosley attempted to blitz him, which is the only scenario where QBs can run, so not sure what the issue there is.

3:35 p.m.: This time it’s Smith’s turn for a receiver โ€” Kittle โ€” to drop an easy pass. One play later, he finds KaVontae Turpin underneath to set up third-and-goal from the 3.

3:34 p.m.: NFC gets the ball out of halftime. The conference scored on all but the last drive in the first half.

First half: NFC 26, AFC 20

3:30 p.m.: Smith’s pass is intercepted by Derwin James in the end zone. He returns it but can’t get in the end zone, tying the game at 20-20 heading into the second half.

3:28 p.m.: NFC gets across midfield and calls timeout with one second left for one more play before halftime.

3:27 p.m.: Huntley to Adams in the back of the end zone is good for a 2-point conversion, tying the game at 20-20 with just seconds left on the clock.

3:25 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, AFC. Huntley throws to Adams who pitches it back to Dolphins receiver Tyreek Hill for the score. Jalen Ramsey then bowls over the Miami pass-catcher, resulting in an unnecessary roughness penalty โ€” incomprehensible for a flag football game. The resulting yardage will result in a 2-pint try for the AFC.

3:21 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, NFC. They’re scoring at will out there! (By design, obviously(. Smith this time finds Vikings tight end T.J. Hockenson, not only for the long touchdown but also the 1-point attempt. The NFC leads 20-12 with 1:09 left in the first.

3:19 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, AFC. There’s another Huntley-Andrews connection โ€” almost too easy for the AFC. The point-after attempt is again no good, keeping the NFC in the lead, 13-12.

3:15 p.m.: That’s a two-minute warning.

3:13 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, NFC. One play later, Smith throws a beautiful corner route to CeeDee Lamb for a score! The NFC lengthens their lead to 13-6 after the failed 2-point conversion.

3:12 p.m.: Turnover on downs, AFC. Huntley has another ball dropped, this time by Ja’Marr Chase in the end zone, to turn the ball over on downs. That gives the NFC the ball at midfield.

3:11 p.m.: NFC sends a blitz, but Smith avoids the pressure and connects with Adams for a nice gain (even though replay shows the ball hit the ground). That sets up fourth-and-mid.

3:10 p.m.: Huntley throws a beautiful bottle over the middle to Davante Adams, but the ball bounces off the receiver’s hands. Two plays later and the AFC faces third-and-mid.

3:08 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, NFC. And there’s an NFC response! Geno Smith throws to George Kittle in the flats, and none of the AFC defenders can pull the flag as he runs unimpeded for the score. The Smith-Kyle Juszczyk connection is good for a point to give the NFC an 7-6 lead.

3:06 p.m.: TOUCHDOWN, AFC. Tyler Huntley to Ravens teammate Mark Andrews for the first score of the game! AFC is going for a 1-point attempt … and doesn’t get it. It’s still 6-0 AFC in the first quarter.

3 p.m.: The AFC is on offense first, already driving down the field in their opening drive. The AFC has second-and-goal from 6 yards out.
