The 2019 Pro Bowl was played on a rainy Sunday in Orlando, Florida. Unsurprisingly, as has been the case for many recent Pro Bowls, the game sucked. It was a comfortable 26-7 win for the AFC over the NFC, as the NFC only mustered up 148 yards of total offense.
You probably only care about how the Seattle Seahawks trio of Russell Wilson, Bobby Wagner, and Michael Dickson fared. Well Michael Dickson got to punt four times, and three of those were the result of three-and-outs by the Russell Wilson-led offense. Somehow, even in the Pro Bowl, Wilson was sacked four times despite not even playing a full half. He finished the game 5/8 for 68 yards and no points put on the board.
Here are two of the vicious hits that Wilson absorbed that will leave many Seahawks fans concerned about his well-being.

For something cool, Wilson threw a deep ball on the NFC’s first offensive play and completed it to Davante Adams.

This drive ended with a turnover on downs at the AFC 2-yard line. Oh well.
Bobby Wagner was credited with five tackles, three of them solo, and he was penalized for leaping when he tried jumping over the center to block a Jason Myers extra point. He wasn’t able to block the kick, either.
The #NFL ProBowl refs notice Bobby Wagner put a hand on a teammate to try & block an extra point attempt. They throw the flag & call leaping/leverage penalty. Announcers call out that he did that vs #Vikings on MNF.— Ron Johnson (@3RonJohnson) January 27, 2019

For some other highlights from this outstanding All-Star Game, Jason Witten started the game by being really incorrect...

...and then ended it by literally breaking the Pro Bowl trophy.

Last but not least, Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Evans recorded an interception for the NFC, which turned into this circus.
