2012 Pro Bowl Results: Andy Lee, David Akers Dominate Special Teams For 49ers

For those that weren't paying attention (likely most of you) the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl turned in its usual offensive fireworks as the AFC blew out the NFC 59-41. Brandon Marshall was the MVP of the game thanks to his six receptions for 176 yards and a Pro Bowl record four touchdowns. Larry Fitzgerald looked like he was on his way to an MVP performance with two touchdowns in the first quarter, but the NFC defense fell apart (well, moreso than normal for a Pro Bowl) and Marshall benefited.

The 49ers had numerous participants in the game, but as has been the case much of the season, the special teamers stood out. David Akers successfully attempted two onside kicks, with long snapper Brian Jennings recovering the second one. Andy Lee got in on the action as well, completing a pass to Patrick Peterson on a fake punt that netted a first down.

The Pro Bowl can be a bit of a joke as far as being a truly competitive affair, but it still provides some moments of entertainment. I've posted video of the two onside kicks and the fake punt after the jump.
