Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph was named Pro Bowl MVP in the NFC’s 62-35 win over the AFC Sunday.
Rudolph, targeted frequently by NFC quarterbacks Drew Brees and Eli Manning, caught five passes for 122 yards and a touchdown.
The longest play came when Rudolph beat Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali for a 52-yard bomb from Manning.
Rudolph was named as a Pro Bowl replacement last week, taking Falcons tight end Tony Gonzalez’s spot on the NFC roster.
A few of Rudolph’s Vikings teammates had big days as well. Fullback Jerome Felton rushed for a 3-yard touchdown, linebacker Chad Greenway had a recovered fumble and kicker Blair Walsh hit field goals from 48 and 26 yards and eight extra points.
