Pro Bowl Update: Two Scores For Jackson

The NFC All-Stars lead 24-17 early in the third quarter thanks to a pair of touchdowns by DeSean Jackson, one of them from Donovan McNabb.

McNabb and Jackson connected for a 58-yard score on the opening drive of the third quarter. Jackson also caught a 7-yard touchdown pass on a wide receiver screen from Aaron Rodgers in the second quarter.

David Akers hit a 47-yard field goal in the first quarter for the NFC's opening points. Strong safety Quintin Mikell had three tackles in the first half and Asante Samuel had a pass deflection.

In case you're wondering, four Eagles have earned awards during the Pro Bowl game in the past. Chuck Bednarik (1954), Reggie White (1987) and Randall Cunningham (1989) were Pro Bowl game MVPs. Floyd Peters earned lineman of the game honors in 1967.
