2012 Pro Bowl Score Update: Ben Roethlisberger Hits A.J. Green For A Touchdown

The 2012 Pro Bowl started with the AFC team trailing the NFC team 14-0 after an onsides kick. Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger finally got the AFC team on track however, leading them down the football field and connecting with Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green for the AFC's first touchdown of the day.

Roethlisberger dropped back and saw Green running right past Arizona Cardinals rookie cornerback Patrick Peterson and just chucked the ball deep. Green caught the football inside the five yard line and walked backwards into the endzone.

Before the touchdown, however, Ben Roethlisberger was picked off by Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews, who during the return decided to start throwing some laterals around because well, it's the Pro Bowl.
