Since only three Cowboys were elected to the Pro Bowl, and only two actually made it to the game in Honolulu on Sunday, it’s not that surprising that the guys in silver and blue didn’t make a huge impact on the game. But they did make some impact, and since you probably didn’t watch the game--we’re still not really sure who actually watches the Pro Bowl--here’s a recap of the day, from a strictly Cowboys-centric perspective.
Jason Witten, one of two Cowboys who was named to the NFC suad by way of the initial vote, caught two passes for 12 yards on three targets. The only unsuccessful target came when NFC quarterback (and Texas native!) Drew Brees overshot him.
Anthony Spencer, who made the team as a replacement for injured Packers’ linebacker Clay Matthews, made a pair of tackles, one solo.
DeMarcus Ware, the other Cowboy to make the team through voting, didn’t make the trip as he continues to deal with that shoulder injury that so nagged him down the stretch of the 2012 season.
The NFC defeated the AFC handily, by a final of 62-35.
