Cheese Curds, 1/28: Davante Adams leads NFC in receiving during sloppy, rainy Pro Bowl

Adams escaped the game without injury, which was really the only important thing on Sunday.

The Green Bay Packers had just one player in attendance at this weekend’s Pro Bowl, and it was a sloppy game in more ways than one. First, there was the weather — it rained during basically the entire game, which made for a less-than-ideal viewing experience for fans who made the trip to Orlando. That also made the game itself unpleasant to watch; the two teams combined for five interceptions, and the NFC team picked up just 148 yards of offense in the entire game.

However, that one Packers player, wide receiver Davante Adams, had the best day of any player on the NFC team based on yards from scrimmage. His 41 yards led the way, most of which came on a single reception against one of the league’s top cornerbacks. The NFC didn’t even get on the scoreboard until the fourth quarter, being held scoreless through 50 minutes of game time.

Still, Adams appeared to have a good time in his second Pro Bowl, and he got out of the event unscathed. That’s a win for the Packers.

Why, why, WHY is Le'Veon Bell still a topic of discussion? Sure, the Packers should consider adding a running back, but not a high-priced diva who just sat out a season -- get another athletic receiving back in the middle rounds of the draft, and let Aaron Jones eat.

Getting out of Orlando injury-free is all that really mattered. Tae had two catches for 41 yards, leading the NFC, and he might have had a 75-yard touchdown on Jalen Ramsey if he got a better throw from Russell Wilson.
