AFC Wins 2007 NFL Pro Bowl
San Diego Chargers place kicker Nate Kaeding of the AFC (#10 white jersey) watches the ball split the uprights in the walk-off field goal, while Buffalo Bills punter Brian Moorman (#8) celebrates in yesterday's 2007 NFL Pro Bowl.
In one of the best finishes in Pro Bowl history, the American Football Conference (AFC) all-stars beat the National Football Conference (NFC) all-stars by a field goal, 31 - 28. The winning field goal was made possible by a defensive pass interference penalty on the NFC at the three yard line, when Cincinnati Bengals qurterback Carson Palmer threw an attempt to teammate Chad Johnson. Kaeding hit a 21-yard chip shot with four seconds left before the snap. The crowd were on their feet as Kaeding made his game-winning attempt, and erupted as the kick converted.
The only press photographer to get Kaeding's winning field goal was Dennis Oda of the Honolulu Star*Bulletin.
