ORLANDO, Fla. — So much for the Sunshine State. The Pro Bowl was played in a cold, driving rain Sunday at Camping World Stadium.

‘‘Yeah, what was that?’’ Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky said after the AFC’s 26-7 victory against the NFC. ‘‘I just want to thank all the fans for coming out, supporting the way they did, coming out and just making this thing fun.’’

That said, here is a look at how the Bears’ Pro Bowl players performed:


Trubisky entered the game with 21 seconds to play in the first half and left in the fourth quarter. He was 5-for-9 for 34 yards. He also threw an interception.


Thanks to Kyle Fuller, Bears’ defense finishes off season with one more takeaway

From Mitch Trubisky to Roquan Smith, Brian Urlacher excited about Bears’ future

Jets safety Jamal Adams made a hard tackle on Trubisky in the third quarter on a failed flea-flicker. Saints running back Alvin Kamara made an errant pitch back to Trubisky on the play.

Trubisky’s arm also was hit on his third pass, which resulted in any ugly collision between Adams and Dolphins cornerback Xavien Howard as both players went for the ball.

CB Kyle Fuller

Fuller intercepted a pass by Colts quarterback Andrew Luck in the second quarter. Fuller, who was covering Steelers receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, celebrated in Bears-like style by taking a family photo in the end zone with his NFC teammates.

RB Tarik Cohen

Cohen had a two-yard carry from the AFC’s 6. He gained 17 yards with a nice spin move on his first punt return, but it was negated by a penalty.

DL Akiem Hicks

Hicks was credited with two tackles and was the only Bears defender to start. He also pressured Luck on Fuller’s interception.


Left tackle Charles Leno Jr. started, and center Cody Whitehair entered the game with Trubisky. Safety Eddie Jackson nearly intercepted an underthrown pass by Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
