After an ugly regular season, DeAngelo Hall won a little respect for Washington's defense in Hawaii.
"I was just about to buy another SUV," Hall said after the game. "So to come out here and grab one for free, I like that."
The interceptions were coming fast and furious in a game where the NFL's best players traditionally mail in half-hearted performances against their cross-conference rivals.
The AFC's elite passers Phillip Rivers, Peyton Manning, and Matt Cassel each threw interceptions in the first half. By the end of the game, the AFC had five total picks.
Coach Bill Belichick must have left his bag of tricks back in New England, as the AFC squad found itself down 42-0 by the second quarter. The AFC threw three quick touchdowns to make the score closer on paper, but on the field, it was all NFC. The final score was 55-41.
Hall was joined in Honolulu by teammates London Fletcher and Brian Orakpo, who stepped in for Chicago's Brian Urlacher and Green Bay's Clay Matthews. This was the first time the Redskins sent three defensive players to the Pro Bowl since 1997.
