2013 Pro Bowl results: Larry Fitzgerald, Patrick Peterson make impact on NFC blowout

Scott Cunningham

The NFC came away with a 62-35 win and the trio of Cardinals in the game earned their winners share.

On Sunday night, the NFC came away with a 62-35 victory over the AFC. The combination of Drew Brees, Eli Manning and Russell Wilson threw for six touchdowns and the AFC turned the ball over five times. Tight end Kyle Rudolph picked up MVP honors with five catches, 122 yards and a touchdown. Read the full recap here.

But what is more important to us is how our Arizona Cardinals players did. The Cards were represented by Patrick Peterson, Daryl Washington and Larry Fitzgerald.

Fitzgerald and Peterson made plays.

Fitzgerald, playing in his seventh Pro Bowl, caught six passes for 59 yards and scored on a nine-yard touchdown pass from Russell Wilson. It was his eighth career Pro Bowl touchdown, extending his own NFL record.

Peterson looked great. He had a couple of tackles and looked very good in coverage. He broke up two passes, one he almost intercepted and the other he deflected to William Moore for the interception. He also ran seven yards on a punt return hand off (he did not field the kick). He also lined up at receiver for a few plays late in the game.

Washington, playing in his first Pro Bowl, did not do much. His only statistical contribution was a special teams tackle.

All three of these players easily could be back in the seasons to come. We know about Fitzgerald, Peterson is quickly showing why he believes he is the best defensive back in the NFL and Washington is nowhere near reaching his potential.
