HONOLULU - Six Chiefs participated in the Pro Bowl Sunday, and though it was a 62-35 blowout loss for the AFC and a game that saw little defense, some of Kansas City’s defenders had a day to remember.
Linebacker Derrick Johnson had six solo tackles and intercepted Giants QB Eli Manning, returning it 42 yards for a touchdown (Watch Highlight: http://on.nfl.com/WrWwVS ).
Johnson was the game’s leading tackler. Chiefs teammate Eric Berry was right with him, though. The safety had five solo tackles and one assisted.
Linebackers Justin Houston and Tamba Hali added three solo and one solo, one assisted, respectively.
The AFC’s leading rusher, Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, had the most rushes and yards for his team Sunday, but only saw 12 yards on three carries. The AFC as a team only rushed for 15 yards on a day that saw nearly 750 yards of passing.
Punter Dustin Colquitt booted four kicks for an average of 48 yards, dropping one inside the 20 with a long of 58 yards.
