Fitzgerald leads NFC Pro Bowl victory

HONOLULU, Feb. 8 (UPI) --

Arizona Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald caught two touchdown passes Sunday to help the NFC top the AFC 30-21 in the Pro Bowl in Honolulu.

Fitzgerald grabbed a 46-yard scoring pass from Drew Brees in the second quarter and a 2-yarder from Eli Manning with just over 4 minutes left in the game.

The Cardinals wideout was named Most Valuable Player of the all-star contest, which has been played in Honolulu for 30 years but will be moved to Miami in 2010. That game will be played a week before, instead of after, the Super Bowl.

Brees completed 11-of-19 passes for 142 yards, the Minnesota Vikings' Adrian Peterson, last year's MVP, ran for 48 yards and a score, and John Carney booted three field goals for the NFC.

Peyton Manning and Kerry Collins each tossed a touchdown pass and LaRon McClain ran for a score for the AFC.
