NFC beats AFC, 23-17

Associated Press

Derrick Brooks and the NFC's solid defense gave the NFL's so-called inferior conference something to feel good about.

Brooks returned an interception 59 yards for a touchdown, the AFC committed six of the Pro Bowl's 10 turnovers, and the NFC rallied for a sloppy 23-17 victory Sunday in a game that didn't turn out to be the offensive show most expected.

Brooks, the Tampa Bay linebacker playing in his ninth straight Pro Bowl, was honored as the game's outstanding player and received a car on the field shortly after the game ended.
