Jack Doyle hauled in a 13-yard touchdown to highlight the day for the four Indianapolis Colts players taking part in Sunday's 2020 NFL Pro Bowl game, as the AFC team topped their NFC rivals, 38-33, at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.
Quenton Nelson, at left guard, and Darius Leonard, at linebacker, got the start for the victorious AFC squad on Sunday, while Doyle and center Ryan Kelly came on as reserves in the winning effort.
Making his second-career Pro Bowl appearance on Sunday, Doyle, in all, had three receptions for 63 yards and a touchdown.
Doyle first got into the action at the 3:17 mark of the first quarter, when he hauled in a 16-yard reception from starting quarterback Lamar Jackson of the Baltimore Ravens, getting the AFC inside the red zone. Four plays later, Jackson would find Buffalo Bills wide receiver Andre Roberts for a five-yard touchdown pass, tying the game at 7 with 19 seconds left in the first quarter.
Doyle made another big play on the AFC's next possession, hauling in a 34-yard reception from Jackson at the 9:17 mark of the second quarter to move the ball to the NFC 29-yard line. The AFC would cash in once again, as Jackson would find Ravens tight end Mark Andrews for a three-yard touchdown pass seven plays later to tie the game at 14 with 4:41 left in the second quarter.
With the Houston Texans' Deshaun Watson entering the game at quarterback on the AFC's next drive, Doyle remained a key target. On 2nd and 10 from the NFC 13-yard line, Doyle leaked out running to his left and hauled in a pass from Watson around the 11-yard line, delivering a stiff arm to Arizona Cardinals safety Budda Baker around the 5-yard line before finding his way to the end zone. The play would give the AFC a 21-14 lead.
Kelly, Leonard & Nelson
The three other Colts on the AFC squad on Sunday were also instrumental in the victorious effort.
Both Nelson (at left guard) and Leonard (at linebacker) got the start; Nelson, who played at both left and right guard on Sunday, was playing in his second-career Pro Bowl, while Leonard was playing in his first Pro Bowl.
Leonard finished his day with one tackle, stopping Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott after he hauled in an 11-yard reception from Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins about midway through the fourth quarter.
Kelly, meanwhile, entered the game at center at the 11:37 mark of the second quarter, as the AFC began its third drive of the day; it was his first-career Pro Bowl selection, as well.
Both Kelly (at center) and Nelson (at right guard) would be on the field at the end of the game as the AFC team kneeled it out to officially clinch the victory.
