Marshall caught four touchdowns on Sunday, just two less than he did during the regular season.

His six-catch, 176 yard-yard performance helped the AFC in their 59-41 win over the NFC.

The 59 points by the AFC set a Pro Bowl mark, and the 100 points scored by the teams combined was the second highest, a touchdown shy of the 107 scored in 2004.

“You never know when you’re going to be back,” Marshall said, “and I wanted to go all out today because it could be my last Pro Bowl.”

As for the TDs, Marshall noted that it helps to have a good QB throwing you the ball.

“It says a lot when you’re playing with these type of quarterbacks,” Marshall said. “They just put it in the right place and I just made the play. Hats off to those guys throwing me the ball.”
