The NFC won the first-ever virtual Pro Bowl with a 32-12 victory over the AFC on Sunday in a game played out on the Madden 21 video game, with NFL players and celebrities at the controls.

With the traditional season-ending All-Star game cancelled for this season due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was instead taken online with Kyler Murray, Deshaun Watson and rapper Snoop Dogg playing a part.

Murray captained the NFC squad by taking the controls in the opening quarter, playing as himself at quarterback. The Arizona Cardinals QB led the NFC squad to a first-quarter touchdown and earned MVP honours in the game.

Murray handed the controls to NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, who powered the NFC offense to three touchdowns in the second quarter.
