PRO FOOTBALL
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - Tennessee's Delanie Walker caught two touchdown passes, including an 18-yarder with 1:31 remaining, and the AFC beat the NFC 24-23 in a rain-soaked Pro Bowl on Sunday. Oakland's Derek Carr completed 11 of 15 passes for 115 yards and connected with Walker on a skinny post for the winning score. Denver's Von Miller sealed the victory when he caused and recovered a fumble by Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff. Miller posed problems all afternoon for the NFC. The AFC overcame a 17-point halftime deficit and four turnovers to win the annual all-star game. The NFC looked like it would coast to a victory early as two Minnesota Vikings made big plays a week earlier than they wanted (Super Bowl) and a week later than they needed (NFC championship game). Adam Thielen had a touchdown reception on the opening drive, and Harrison Smith returned an interception 79 yards for a score as the NFC opened up a 20-3 lead at halftime. Heavy downpours were partly to blame for the sloppiness. The winning team got $64,000 each, double the losing team's share.

Day holed a 6-foot birdie putt in the dark on the fifth hole of a sudden-death playoff Sunday. Noren followed with a 5-foot birdie putt on the par-5 18th hole at Torrey Pines. They had no choice but to return Monday morning to decide the longest playoff in the 67-year history of this event. In only his second PGA Tour event since August 2015, Tiger Woods closed with a 72 and tied for 23rd, seven shots out of the lead.
