HONOLULU, Jan. 29 (UPI) -- Brandon Marshall hauled down four TD passes, including two second-half scores from Andy Dalton, and the AFC outgunned the NFC 59-41 in the 2012 Pro Bowl.

The Miami Dolphins receiver set a Pro Bowl record with the scoring grabs of 74, 29, 47 and 3 yards, finishing with six catches for 176 yards.

His third touchdown -- a 47-yard catch-and-run from Cincinnati's Dalton -- early in the third quarter put the AFC ahead for good at 38-35.

Dalton went 7-of-9 through the air for 99 yards. Phillip Rivers and Ben Roethlisberger combined to complete 17-of-30 passes for 371 yards and four scoring strikes.

Drew Brees and Aaron Rodgers each hurled two touchdowns without interceptions for the NFC.

Carolina rookie Cam Newton also threw two TDs but was picked off twice by San Diego's Eric Weddle.

Larry Fitzgerald of Arizona caught six passes for 111 yards and three touchdowns in the NFC's loss.
