The San Francisco 49ers have two representatives in the 2016 Pro Bowl, and they ended up involved in an unexpected play. Team Rice quarterback Derek Carr fired off a pass late in the first quarter. Richard Sherman forced a deflection that NaVorro Bowman intercepted. Bowman jumped for it and went to the ground with the ball. A couple players touched him in the air, and then Joe Staley touched Bowman as he hit the ground.
Fittingly enough, the whole play came back due to Richard Sherman committing a pass interference penalty. I mean could it have been more on point given the 49ers-Seahawks rivalry. Well done, Richard.
Team Rice got the ball back after Sherman's penalty and proceeded to drive down the field to take a 21-7 lead. Team
Rice Irvin is currently leading the game 49-21 in the fourth quarter.
