Landry Scores Touchdown In 2016 Pro Bowl

Posted Jan 31, 2016

Landry became the seventh Dolphins player to score a touchdown in a Pro Bowl game.

Seattle’s Russell Wilson threw three first-half touchdown passes to lead Team Irvin to a 49-27 victory over Team Rice on Sunday and earn offensive MVP honors at Aloha Stadium. Seattle teammate Michael Bennett was the defensive MVP after having the game's only sack and deflecting a pass.

Overall, four Dolphins players participated in the NFL’s annual all-star game. Center Mike Pouncey was also selected to the game, but did not make the trip due to an injury.

Safety Reshad Jones was the Dolphins’ lone starter as he recorded three solo tackles and a pass defensed for Team Irvin. Tackle Branden Albert saw reserve action for Team Irvin.

Wide receiver Jarvis Landry played for Team Rice and recorded three receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown. Cornerback Brent Grimes recorded one tackle for Team Rice.

Landry caught a 31-yard TD pass from Buffalo's Tyrod Taylor with 6:05 remaining in the game.

Landry became the seventh Dolphins player to score a touchdown in a Pro Bowl game.

In the 2012 Pro Bowl, wide receiver Brandon Marshall caught a Pro Bowl-record four touchdown receptions and was named as the game’s MVP.

Prior to that, the most recent Dolphins player to have accounted for a touchdown in the Pro Bowl was wide receiver Chris Chambers, who scored on a 16-yard reception from Peyton Manning in the first quarter to open the 2006 game’s scoring. Other Dolphins scoring Pro Bowl touchdowns include running back Ricky Williams, who scored on a pair of one-yard runs as he was named the MVP in the AFC’s 45-20 route of the NFC in the 2003 game, wide receiver Mark Clayton, who caught a nine-yard touchdown pass from Buffalo’s Jim Kelly in the 1991 game, tight end Ferrell Edmunds, who had a five-yard scoring reception from Seattle’s Dave Krieg in the 1989 game, and Hall of Fame wide receiver Paul Warfield, who caught a 32-yard TD pass from Dolphins teammate Bob Griese in the ’74 contest.

It was the 35th time the NFL's annual all-star game was played at Aloha Stadium dating to 1980, and the third consecutive season that it has used an "unconferenced" format.

The game was played at in Glendale, Arizona, last year. The site of next year's Pro Bowl has not yet been determined by the NFL, although it does have an option to return to Hawaii.
