Another Pro Bowl is in the books. Today's game in Orlando was a wet and wacky affair, complete with defensive players catching touchdowns and running backs rushing the passer.

When all was said and done, the AFC emerged with a 26-7 win over the NFC. A pair of second-year players took home MVP honors.

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was named Offensive MVP. Mahomes completed 7-of-14 passes for 156 yards and the game's first touchdown to Eric Ebron.

He also got caught forgetting he was mic'd up.

The Defensive MVP was New York Jets safety Jamal Adams. Adams made two tackles, recorded a sack, intercepted one pass and broke up one as well.

The Pro Bowl isn't real football, but both MVP's have bright futures in the league. Mahomes took the competition by storm in his first season as a starter, while Adams continues to develop into a leader and force on the Jets' defense.

We'd expect both of them to go back in the Pro Bowl multiple times.
