Pro Bowl 2014: Vontaze Burfict pick leads Bengals highlights

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Cincinnati Bengals had two players playing in Sunday's Pro Bowl game. Save for a handful of tackles and an interception by Vontaze Burfict, there really wasn't much to see.

As a Bengals fan, Monday morning invites a moment of relief after Sunday's Pro Bowl game. No injuries. Exhibition games are always dangerous with superstar players -- a freak accident, twist, turn, anything could disrupt a team's roster the following season.

Linebacker Vontaze Burfict led the highlights for Cincinnati, capturing an interception on a deflected Andrew Luck pass -- actually, it was really the only highlight from a Bengals player. Unfortunately the turnover didn't result in points as Team Rice stalled at the three-yard line after a failed fourth down attempt with 3:31 remaining in the first quarter.

Burfict finished second on Team Rice with five tackles, including a tackle-for-loss, a pass defensed and the interception highlighted above.

Wide receiver A.J. Green was less involved on Sunday, posting a seven-yard reception with 11:28 remaining in the first. Despite playing in a handful of offensive plays in the second half, Green wouldn't see another targeted pass after the :36 second mark in the first half.

Team Rice eventually won the game on a two-point conversion from running back Mike Tolbert, giving them a 22-21 lead and eventual win over Team Sanders.
