A two-point conversion helped Team Rice snatch victory from Team Sanders 22-21 in the Pro Bowl in Honolulu on Sunday.

Team Rice had been trailing 21-14 in the final minute, but Alex Smith's 20-yard pass to DeMarco Murray set up a thrilling conclusion to the match.

And rather than go for the regulation kick at goal to force overtime, Team Rice gambled on going the win - with the move paying dividends as Mike Tolbert rushed over.

Team Sanders still had a chance to snatch victory, but Justin Tucker's 67-yard field goal fell short.

DeSean Jackson had opened the scoring for Team Sanders after a 36-yard pass from Andrew Luck, only for Drew Brees to connect with Jimmy Graham from eight yards to level the scores.

Cam Newton scooted over from a yard out for Team Rice, but it was 14-14 when Philip Rivers linked up with Josh Gordon from 10 yards.

Nick Foles, who was named MVP, tossed a 12-yard scoring pass to Jordan Cameron to restore Team Sanders' advantage.

Team Rice, though, had the final say as with Murray's late touchdown and Tolbert's conversion.
