Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins threw a touchdown pass and running back Dalvin Cook caught a touchdown pass for the NFC, but it wasn’t enough in Sunday’s Pro Bowl at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. The AFC defeated the NFC 41-35.

Five Minnesota stars played in the game, and four started. Cook was the only one of the five selected to the game as a starter, but due to others not being able to compete, wide receiver Justin Jefferson, tackle Brian O’Neill and safety Harrison Smith ended up also starting.

Cousins entered as a reserve and soon threw a 14-yard touchdown pass to San Francisco fullback Kyle Juszczyk to tie the score 7-7 in the first quarter. Cousins completed 6 of 10 passes for 66 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Jefferson was the leading receiver for the NFC, catching five passes for 46 yards. He also had one rushing attempt for seven yards.

Cook carried two times for five yards and caught three passes for 17 yards. His 5-yard touchdown reception from Arizona’s Kyler Murray with 2:26 left in the game cut the deficit to 41-35, but the NFC never got the ball back.

Smith played in his sixth career Pro Bowl, the most among active Vikings players. He had three tackles.

Tampa Bay safety Antoine Winfield Jr., a former University of Minnesota star and the son of former Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield Sr., had a 63-yard interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter. His father had two career interceptions in Pro Bowls, getting picks in games while representing the Vikings after the 2008 and 2010 seasons.
