It marked the 27th consecutive time that the National Football League's all-star gamewas held in Honolulu. The NFC all-stars won by the score of 23 to 17.
The start of the game was interrupted by a surprise rainstorm that lasted through the first quarter, although it ended midway through the second. Both teams' first possessions were punted away, and each of their second drives ended in interceptions; the
Chicago Bears' Nathan Vasherintercepted Peyton Manning, then John Lynchpicked off Matt Hasselbeck. The AFC scored first on their next drive, culminating with a 16 yard touchdown pass from Manning to Chris Chambers. After the teams traded punts, Michael Vicktook over for the NFC in the second quarter, and led the team to the AFC 14-yard line, where Neil Rackerskicked a 32-yarder to make it 7-3. Manning led the AFC right back down the field, and Shayne Graham's 31-yard field goal increased the AFC's lead. with a 14-yard touchdown pass with 8 seconds left in the half to tie the score at 10-10. Jake Delhommeof the Carolina Pantherstook over at quarterback at the start of the third quarter, and hit Steve Smith, with three straight passes. The Carolina Panthers provided the NFC's team with their coaching staff, and with the Panthers' quarterback and wide receiver running the offense, the NFC moved quickly down the field. The drive stalled at midfield, and the NFC punted it away. After the AFC's drive, led by Chiefs' quarterback Trent Green, ended in a punt, Delhomme once again moved the NFC downfield before being sacked by Casey Hampton, forcing a fumblethat was recovered by the AFC's Marcus Stroud. The NFC's defense once again responded, and on the third play of the drive, Derrick Brooksreturned an interception 59 yards for a touchdown that gave the NFC the lead at 17-10. After the AFC punted away their next drive, Santana Mossfumbled the ball away in AFC territory. Green led the AFC down the field again, thanks in large part to a 20-yard run by his Chiefs teammate, Larry Johnson. Green tied the game at 17-17 with a one yard quarterback sneak. Matt Hasselbeck took over for the NFC again, and led the team on a scoring drive, ending with a 22 yard field goal by Rackers that gave the NFC the lead again. Steve McNaircame in for a play at AFC quarterback, and promptly fumbled the ball away. After the NFC punted the ball away, McNair came back and lost another fumble, giving the NFC the ball on their own 18 yard line. Following the fumble, the AFC switched to a shotgun formation. After another Rackers field goal, the AFC took over on their own 26 with 1:10 left. McNair brought the AFC to midfield, but could not get them the touchdown they needed, and the game ended on a sack by the New York Giants' Michael Strahan. Brooks was given the Most Valuable Playeraward.
