Schaub wins MVP, AFC wins Pro Bowl

Just got back up to my seat in the press box after a trip down to the field, which was a chaotic scene with hundreds of media flocking to players before they went to the locker room.

With the AFC holding on for a 41-34 victory at Sun Life Stadium, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub won Pro Bowl MVP honors. He's the first Texans player ever to win the award.

"He is really accurate, very smart and just a talented player," AFC coach Norv Turner of the San Diego Chargers said after the game. "It does not surprise me. We thought that coming out here, and he's been unbelievable. He is just an outstanding player."

Playing in the first Pro Bowl of his career, Schaub went 13-of-17 for 189 yards and two touchdowns. He threw touchdown passes on the AFC's first two drives of the game, then went to the bench and came back in the fourth quarter to lead the AFC to the go-ahead touchdown, a two-yard run by Chris Johnson.
