2016 Pro Bowl final score: Team Irvin 49, Team Rice 27

New, comments

Tyrod Taylor threw for 120 yards and a touchdown (and three interceptions) in his Pro Bowl debut as the Bills' starting quarterback.

In last night's 2016 Pro Bowl, Team Rice - which featured three Buffalo Bills players in quarterback Tyrod Taylor, guard Richie Incognito, and center Eric Wood - was blown out by Team Irvin, falling by a final score of 49-27.

The three quarterbacks on Team Rice combined to throw six interceptions in the defeat; Taylor's three interceptions (half of his total in 14 games as the Bills' starter in 2015) led the pack, with Derek Carr contributing two and Eli Manning throwing one, as well.

It wasn't all bad for Taylor, though; he completed 8-of-14 passes for 120 yards, carried twice for 15 yards, and threw this pretty 31-yard touchdown pass to Jarvis Landry of the Miami Dolphins for the final score of the game.

Taylor was the first Bills quarterback to compete in a Pro Bowl since Drew Bledsoe did it in 2002. Bledsoe didn't fare much better in his appearance as a Bill, completing 9-of-18 passes for 122 yards and an interception.

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson was named the 2016 Pro Bowl MVP; he threw for 164 yards and three touchdowns on just 12 pass attempts to help Team Irvin build their insurmountable lead.
