Bills' Jordan Poyer leads AFC over NFC in Pro Bowl long-drive competition
The NFL’s Pro Bowl is no longer a football game – at least, not of the tackle variety.
It is now a series of AFC vs. NFC skills competitions which culminate with a non-contact, flag-football game.
Several Pro Bowl selections are not in attendance this week in Nevada, including Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, who is instead competing at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
But while golf took one of the high-profile players, some of the players took to golf in one of the skills competitions.
A long-drive contest was held at Bear's Best Golf Course in Las Vegas, with the AFC clipping the NFC on the final drive by Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer.
