Wilson shines in Pro Bowl

Posted: Updated:
HOLOLULU, HI (WWBT) -

Russell Wilson has put together a strong campaign for NFL Rookie of the Year honors and Sunday he capped off his rookie season at the Pro Bowl in Hawaii.

Wilson played the entire second half for the NFC in the squad's 62-35 win over the AFC.  It marked a fitting end to the season for the Collegiate product, who completed eight of his ten pass attempts for 98 yards and three touchdowns.  He also broke off a 13 yard rushing during the contest.  All three of his TD passes came in the third quarter.

While Wilson put up MVP-worthy numbers on the game, Minnesota tight end Kyle Rudolph took home those honors.

The Seahawks' rookie signal caller earned an NFC roster spot after Matt Ryan withdrew from the game, after suffering a shoulder injury in last weekend's conference championship game loss to San Francisco.
