It really won't matter much in the grand scheme of things, but the Dolphins certainly justified their large presence at the Pro Bowl on Sunday.

To put it mildly, the 2003 Pro Bowl turned into a Dolphins showcased, led by game MVP Ricky Williams.

The Dolphins running back basically did what he did all season, rushing for 56 yards and two touchdowns and catching three passes to lead the AFC to a 45-20 victory.

If that weren't enough, Williams also forced a fumble on a kickoff return (Williams was playing on special teams because the rosters aren't big enough to accommodate many kick coverage specialists).

Another key to the AFC victory was the defense recording six interceptions. Among those getting picks by Jason Taylor, Zach Thomas and Sam Madison, who played in the game in place of original choice Patrick Surtain.

In addition, Taylor, Thomas and Madison finished 1-2-3 in the AFC in tackles, and Taylor's pressure resulted in a fourth-quarter interception.

The other two Dolphins participants, Tim Bowens and Brock Marion, both finished with two tackles.
