Watch: NFC beats AFC, Kyler Murray wins MVP in virtual 2021 Pro Bowl

Feb. 1 (UPI) -- The NFC beat the AFC 32-12 and Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray was named MVP of the virtual 2021 Pro Bowl, which was played on the Madden NFL 21 video game.

Murray, NASCAR driver Bubba Wallace, Seattle Seahawks safety Jamal Adams and former NFL running back Marshawn Lynch alternated controlling the NFC team to earn the victory on Sunday. The game streamed on the NFL's social media accounts.

The four-man NFC team threw four touchdowns with Murray at quarterback. Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook also scored two virtual touchdowns.

Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson, former NFL wide receiver Keyshawn Johnson, Tennessee Titans running back Derrick Henry and rapper Snoop Dogg controlled the AFC team.

Cook scored a rushing touchdown to start the scoring for the NFC in the first quarter. The AFC responded with a passing score from Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes to Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen.

Murray went on to throw passing scores to Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins, Seahawks wide receiver D.K. Metcalf, Cook and Detroit Lions tight end T.J. Hockenson.
