San Diego Chargers in the Pro Bowl: Recap

Philip Rivers - 11/19, 190 pass yds, 2 TDs, 1 INT
The San Diego Chargers' QB threw the most passes for the AFC and the second-most passes of any QB in the game (Cam Newton was first and threw 3 INTs).

Ryan Mathews - 8 carries, 35 rush yds
Bam Bam's 8 carries tied him for the most in the game with Marshawn Lynch. His 4.4 yards per carry is not outstanding, but in the Pro Bowl it's rare to find a player have a standout game.

Antonio Gates - 3 catches, 67 rec yds, 1 TD
Apparently it doesn't matter which team Gates is on, he'll still finish the game with a few catches for 50+ yards and a TD. The man is a picture of consistency, and the fact that he even played in this game is a tribute to how good his foot was feeling by the end of the season.

Find out how Vincent Jackson and Eric Weddle did in the game after the jump.

Vincent Jackson - 4 catches, 64 rec yds, 1 carry, 7 rush yds
Not a bad game. It always amazes me when guys are heading into free agency, looking for big money deals, and playing in this game. I know the contact is kept to a minimum, but what if he tore his ACL on a play? That'd be devastating to his career. A ballsy move to play by Jackson, and it looked like he had a great time in Hawaii.

Eric Weddle - 5 tackles, 1 defended pass, 2 INTs
The pictures of the Chargers in Hawaii were funny because they made Weddle look so short. Then again, who wouldn't next to Rivers, Jackson, Gates and Mathews? Eric got the last laugh though, tying for the lead in tackles on the AFC team with 5 and leading all defenders with 2 interceptions. If Brandon Marshall wasn't the favorite receiver of all 3 QBs that player for the AFC, Weddle would've been an easy choice for MVP for an AFC team that won by 18 points.
