Recapping the Bengals in the Pro Bowl


Andy Dalton went 7/9 for 100 yards and 2 touchdowns. One of those was a Pro Bowl-record 4th touchdown reception by Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall, so now Dalton can say he was a part of Pro Bowl history.

A.J. Green had 2 receptions for 42 yards and a TD. It took only 8 minutes for Green to leave his mark in the Pro Bowl, as he caught a 34-yard TD from Ben Roethlisberger. Green, the #4 overall pick in last year’s NFL Draft, beat CB Patrick Peterson, the #5 overall pick. Jermaine  Gresham had only 1 catch for 14 yards. Atkins had 2 tackles, several QB pressures, and a pass deflection. The most exciting part for Bengals fans is that all 4 of those players have played 2 NFL seasons or less, and are already getting recognized in the Pro Bowl. The future looks bright in Cincinnati.
