Cam Newton fights for a touchdown during the Pro Bowl on Sunday in Honolulu. Newton's team, which was captained by Deion Sanders, lost 22-21 to Jerry Rice's team.

HONOLULU – DeMarco Murray caught a 20-yard pass for a touchdown, and Mike Tolbert plunged into the end zone for a 2-point conversion with less than 1-minute left to give Jerry Rice a win over Deion Sanders in the first schoolyard-style Pro Bowl on Sunday.

Baltimore's Justin Tucker missed a 67-yard field goal on the game's final play after missing a 66-yarder earlier in the game.

The touchdown and conversion gave Rice a comeback win, after Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles threw a 12-yard touchdown to Cleveland tight end Jordan Cameron with less than 5 minutes to play to give Sanders a 21-14 lead.

The Cameron and Murray touchdowns were the only scores of the second half in a game that had eight turnovers – including six interceptions – and nine sacks.
