Posted Feb 1, 2016

John Kuhn has three receptions, Clay Matthews makes six tackles

The Packers' coaching staff came out on the winning side of Sunday's Pro Bowl, while Green Bay's player representatives finished on the losing end.

Team Irvin, coached by the Packers' staff (minus Mike McCarthy) defeated Team Rice, which included four Packers players, by a score of 49-27 on Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

Team Irvin jumped out to a 21-7 lead early in the second quarter behind three TD passes from Seattle QB Russell Wilson and never looked back.

Packers playing for Team Rice were left guard Josh Sitton, linebackers Clay Matthews and Julius Peppers, and fullback John Kuhn.

Kuhn caught three passes for 17 yards, all in the first half. He had a 6-yard reception from Giants QB Eli Manning on the game's opening drive to convert on third down, and the drive ended in a touchdown, giving Team Rice its only lead of the game, 7-0.

Kuhn also caught passes good for 9 and 2 yards from Raiders QB Derek Carr.

On defense, Matthews was credited in the press box statistics with six solo tackles, second on the team behind only Seahawks LB Bobby Wagner. Peppers was credited with one solo tackle. All of their tackles came in the second half.

Playing in his final Pro Bowl and final game in an NFL uniform, former Packers DB Charles Woodson was on Team Rice with his former Green Bay teammates and was credited with one tackle.
