Goodell: Pro Bowl improved from previous years



HONOLULU (AP) NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is showing the Pro Bowl more love after previously threatening to cancel it if play didn't improve. 

Goodell said in an ESPN Radio interview that participants played harder and made the game very competitive. 

Goodell says he had fun watching the game Sunday and thinks fans did, too. 

The future of the Pro Bowl is unclear. The NFL hasn't committed to holding future games or said whether the game will stay in Hawaii, where Pro Bowls have been held 34 of the last 35 years. 

Goodell says a new unconferenced format gave players something to get excited about. 

NFL greats Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders picked teams. Team Rice beat Team Sanders 22-21 on a touchdown and 2-point conversion with 41 seconds left.
