In the first quarter of the 2012 Pro Bowl, it has been marked by lackadaisical play for the most part. Defenses can't blitz or play press coverage. It makes for an offensive show.
Larry Fitzgerald of the Arizona Cardinals has been the entire show so far. In two targets from Aaron Rodgers, he scored two touchdowns. The first came on a wide receiver screen play from 10 yards out. He actually ran through Champ Bailey to get to the endzone.
The ensuing kickoff by the NFC was a surprise. They went for the onside kick and recovered the ball. On the first play of the next drive, Rodgers threw the ball deep to Fitz as he was covered by Darrelle Revis. He was wide open and scored a 44-yard TD.
With the score, Fitzgerald tied the Pro Bowl record for receiving TDs. He has six in his career.
Here is the video of the 44-yarder.
