Alexander Defensive MVP, Brown, Gilmore plays roles in AFC Pro Bowl win


The Bills had their fair share of players on the field at Sunday night's Pro Bowl and there's no question they made their presence felt.

Zach Brown was the second leading tackler in the game and made a goal line stop of Cowboys RB Zeke Elliott on fourth-and-goal from the one. Stephon Gilmore thwarted another scoring attempt intercepting a pass in the end zone that was intended for Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. And Lorenzo Alexander led the AFC in tackles with eight and had an interception en route to being named Defensive MVP of the game.

The veteran linebacker's interception came at a critical time in the game. The AFC was clinging to a seven-point lead late in the game. With under 90 seconds left in regulation Washington QB Kirk Cousins tried to hit Seattle TE Jimmy Graham deep over the middle, but the ball went off Graham's hands and Alexander was in position to make the interception.

He then lateraled the ball to Denver CB Aqib Talib, who returned it all the way inside the NFC's 10-yard line. San Diego QB Philip Rivers kneeled out the final two plays to kill the clock and seal the win for the AFC (20-13).

Alexander and Kansas City TE Travis Kelce (Offensive MVP) were awarded with a new car for their efforts in the game.

DT Kyle Williams and G Richie Incognito also represented the Bills in Sunday night's Pro Bowl.
