Everson Griffen ‘really wanted’ Pro Bowl win, MVP honors

11:50 AM ET

ORLANDO, Fla. — Minnesota Vikings defensive end Everson Griffen may not have been named the Pro Bowl defensive MVP, but his three-sack, eight-tackle performance certainly turned heads and suggested that this game was more than just an exhibition to players this year.

“I just came in trying to make a lot of plays,” Griffen said. “I really wanted the MVP. I really wanted to win the game, but it didn’t happen. I’m just blessed to be out here with some of the best players in the league and compete. It’s all about competing and playing the next down, and that’s what I did.”

The AFC beat the NFC 20-13, but Griffen’s performance, along with Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins‘ hustle play at the end, where he chased down Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib after a late interception by Lorenzo Alexander, made for, what many felt, one of the more compelling Pro Bowls in recent years.
