Packers players shine in Pro Bowl

It wasn't the Phoenix football game they wanted to play in, but several Packers players made their mark in the 2015 Pro Bowl Sunday at University of Phoenix Stadium.

One of the game's more memorable moments was linebacker Clay Matthews playing defensive back and batting down a two point conversion attempt intended for Bears tight end Martellus Bennett.

In the second quarter, Jordy Nelson hauled in a 21 yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees. Aaron Rodgers decided to sit out this year's Pro Bowl as he recovers from the calf injury that hobbled him in the postseason.

John Kuhn even provided a spark with a third quarter first down carry that ttotaled29 yards. Team Carter, the team that contained Nelson and Kuhn, lost 32-28 to Team Irvin, whose roster included Matthews. Former NFL stars Cris Carter and Michael Irvin drafted the Pro Bowl rosters fantasy-style, hence the split of Packers players to two different teams.
