Despite the cloudy skies, NFL fans were out in force at Aloha Stadium Sunday for the Pro Bowl.
There was some great food to eat while tailgating in the Aloha Stadium parking lot.
Then the fans got into the stadium!
Local boy Max Unger from Kailua-Kona was one of the all-stars in the 2013 Pro Bowl.
This was Unger's first Pro Bowl. "I hope they keep it because it was awesome. It's cool to have the best football players in the world in Hawaii," said Unger.
New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning was 16-for-23 in passing with 191 yards and two touchdowns and one interception.
One of Manning's touchdowns went to his teammate Victor Cruz to put the NFC up in the second half 17-14.
Cruz then did his trademark salsa dance in the end zone.
KITV4 Sports anchor Jahmai Webster asked Cruz about the dance. "Did you think about doing hula for the Hawaii people?" asked Webster.
Cruz replied, "I thought about it, man, but I thought, 'It was my first one, first touchdown, I gotta keep it classic.' So, hopefully, I get in there a couple more times in the future."
Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green had a big game for the AFC with seven catches for 119 yards and three touchdowns.
Houston Texans tackle Duane Brown said he's going to spend the offseason with his wife and kids and going back to try to win the Super Bowl next year.
Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph was the MVP of the game. He had 5 catches for 122 yards and one touchdown.
The yards Rudolph gained in the Pro Bowl was about one-fourths of his 2012 season total. His longest career catch is 41 yards. Rudolph had a 52-yard catch in the Pro Bowl.
For his efforts, Rudolph got a GMC Denali.
