HONOLULU, Hawaii -- Team Irvin got a 49-27 win at Aloha Stadium over Team Rice in the 2016 Pro Bowl behind an outstanding performance from Russell Wilson, which earned him the Pro Bowl Most Valuable Player award.

Eli Manning got the ball rolling for Team Rice with a four-yard touchdown completion to Travis Kelce with 9:31 left in the first quarter, but Wilson of Team Irvin responded with two quick touchdowns. The first was to Julio Jones for 14 yards and the other was to Devonta Freeman for a six-yard score to jump to a 14-7 lead, which is how the first quarter ended.

Manning completed six-of-nine passes for 75 yards, one touchdown and an interception. 

Wilson made it happen again after the offense marched down the field. The quarterback found rookie running back Todd Gurley for a 10-yard score and a 21-7 lead early in the second quarter. 

The Seattle Seahawks quarterback finished 8-for-12 with 164 yards and three touchdowns. Gurley only had three carries for 18 yards, but was able to make it happen in the receiving game with two catches for 18 yards. 

Kelce got Team Rice right back into the game with a 10-yard touchdown catch from Derek Carr. The second touchdown of the game for Kelce came with 3:24 to go in the first half against Team Irvin. The tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs led the team with five receptions for 91 yards and two scores. 

Team Irvin got the ball back and Teddy Bridgewater was immediately picked off by Marcus Peters. Believe it or not, on the next drive for Team Rice, Carr threw an interception to Jurrell Casey at the 20-yard line of Team Irvin. 

Carr finished the game with 198 yards through the air on 14-for-25 passing. He threw one interception, but gave up two interceptions, which was his biggest blemish of the night. 

The interception from Bridgewater was made up for on a two-yard pass to Darren Sproles, who found the end zone with ease. With the touchdown, Team Irvin took a 14 point lead with 32 seconds left in the first half. 

At the half, Team Irvin owned a 28-14 lead over Team Rice behind 164 yards and three touchdowns from Wilson. On the other end, Carr tossed two interceptions and Manning threw one for Team Rice. In the first half, Johnny Hekker, a punter for the Los Angeles Rams, threw a 10-yard pass for Team Rice. 

With 8:55 to play in the third quarter, Team Rice got within a score on a three-yard rushing touchdown by Doug Martin. The running back of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers carried the ball seven times for 20 yards and a touchdown on Sunday. 

Just two minutes later, Bridgewater and the offense of Team Irvin jumped to a 35-21 margin on a 50-yard touchdown between the quarterback and wide receiver, Allen Robinson

Bridgewater completed six-of-eight passes for 129 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Meanwhile, Robinson led the way for the offense of Team Irvin with 105 yards on two receptions.

On the first play of the drive for Team Rice, Tyrod Taylor threw an interception, which was taken away by Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie with 3:24 left in the third quarter. 

Jameis Winston of Team Irvin got the ball after the interception and went deep to Delaine Walker, which pushed Team Irvin's lead to 42-21 over Team Rice with under two minutes to play in the third quarter. Winston did it again with 7:50 to go in the game on a seven-yard completion to DeAndre Hopkins, who took the ball in for a touchdown. With the last three scores, Team Irvin owned a 49-21 lead over Team Rice. 

Winston only completed six passes, but he threw through the air for 164 yards and two scores. Walker caught three passes for 80 yards and a score, while Hopkins added 71 yards and a touchdown on three catches from the quarterbacks of Team Irvin. 

While it was a little too later, Taylor inched Team Rice closer with a 31-yard score through the air to Jarvis Landry. The touchdown was set up by a back-to-back completions of 14 yards and 20 yards to Cedric Peerman and Odell Beckham Jr. 

Team Irvin coughed the ball up on their next drive as Winston took off with his legs, but was knocked around by the defense. During the hit, Winston lost control and the ball was recovered by Khalil Mack of Team Rice with 5:29 left in the game. The defense for Team Irvin stepped up as NaVorro Bowan intercepted Taylor on the very first play of the drive for Team Rice. The team down by 22 points got their big break, but then blew the opportunity. 

The clock was run down by Team Irvin to allow the team to finalize a 49-27 victory over Team Rice. Team Rice threw six interceptions, while Team Irvin only tossed one, which turned out to be a huge factor for the trio of Wilson, Bridgewater and Winston to help get a win in the 2016 Pro Bowl.
