J.J. Watt "dominated" according to Deion Sanders and Duane Brown got the start at left tackle in a down-to-the-wire Pro Bowl won by Team Rice on a late two point conversion 22-21.

The Watt stat line was impressive with a sack, two passes defensed, two QB hits, a TFL and a nice surfing celebration. "I wanted to win, I'm really upset we didn't win but it was fun." Watt told HoustonTexans.com after the game.

He was also a fan of the new format. "I don't think you could ask for a better product on the field. Everyone was going hard, everyone was trying to win."

Duane Brown agreed. "I think this was the most competitive Pro Bowl there's been in a long time. Everybody was going full speed. It was very competitive, coming down to the last couple of plays.

Brown enjoyed the event, "It was a good time. It was great to come out here and experience Hawaii, being able to bond and play with some of the best players in the league, it's always a great experience."

Watt said he would remember the competition most of all. "We were picking teams like a backyard game. There was pride on the line." Brown echoed "This was a lot different from last year, the draft, the different team mates. It was very competitive."
