The Cleveland Browns were well represented in today's Pro Bowl in Hawaii, and they impacted the game as well.
Wide receiver Josh Gordon and tight end Jordan Cameron each caught touchdown passes. Cornerback Joe Haden also recorded an interception in the game.
What made tonight different from previous Pro Bowls is that all six Browns players were not on the same team.
Instead of the Pro Bowl having players from the AFC battle against players from the NFC, this year a draft was held so Browns teammates during the season faced off against one another tonight. Gordon, Haden and left tackle Joe Thomas were drafted by team Rice, by Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice. Cameron, safety TJ Ward and center Alex Mack were drafted by team Sanders, by Hall of Fame defensive back Deion Sanders.
The possibility of teammates facing one another came to reality in the 2nd quarter when Gordon was flipped to the ground by Ward on a wide receiver reverse play.
Gordon also caught his touchdown pass in the 2nd quarter, a 10-yard pass from San Diego Chargers quarterback Phillip Rivers. It tied game at 14. Gordon had six catches for 66 yards and a touchdown and a rush for 13 yards.
Cameron's touchdown catch, a 12-yard reception from Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles, gave team Sanders a 21-14 lead in the 4th quarter. Cameron finished with three catches for 27 yards and a touchdown.
Haden finished with one tackle and an interception for team Rice. Ward finished with four tackles, four assisted tackles, and a pass deflection for team Sanders.
Team Rice won the game 22-21.
