Packers quiet in Pro Bowl

Neither Ahman Green nor Bubba Franks had much of an impact for their team in their first appearance in the annual AFC-NFC Pro Bowl on Saturday in Honolulu.<p>

Green ran two yards for a touchdown just 27 seconds into the game, which set a record for the fastest score in the history of the game. But the Green Bay Packers' star running back had a total of two rushes for zero yards. He also caught three passes for 29 yards.

"I did my job, something I've been doing well all year for my team," Green said. "I'm just doing my job here in the Pro Bowl."

Franks, the Packers' second year tight end, did not have any catches. Both Green and Franks also played on special teams.

Quarterback Brett Favre, scheduled to be the starting quarterback, did not play in the game because of a sore back. It was the sixth time that Favre was named to the NFC squad for the Pro Bowl. Philadelphia's Donovan McNabb took Favre's place.

The AFC beat the NFC, 38-30.

Oakland quarterback Rich Gannon threw two touchdown passes, including a 55-yard strike to Marvin Harrison for the AFC squad's first score after trailing 10-0. Gannon completed 8 of 10 passes for 137 yards and the teams combined for 34 first-quarter points, the most points in a quarter in the Pro Bowl. Gannon was named MVP of the game.

The winning AFC players earned $30,000, while the NFC took home $15,000.
