Coffee & Clips: Falcons Soak in Pro Bowl

For those who didn't see the Pro Bowl on ESPN Sunday night, Team Irvin completely dominated Team Rice, with a final score of 49-27.

Team Irvin's first two scores came from Atlanta's dynamic duo, WR Julio Jones and RB Devonta Freeman. QB Russell Wilson threw a beautiful pass to Jones for a 14-yard touchdown, and then found Freeman for a six-yard score to follow.

FB Patrick DiMarco saw time in the second half, rushing for 15 yards on three carries. CB Desmond Trufant played a significant amount of snaps, but Team Rice stayed away from his side for the majority of the game.

The fun didn't stop the entire night at Aloha Stadium, Freeman even saw time playing defense.

DiMarco, Freeman, Jones and Trufant took to social media to display their experiences.

From the Projects in Miami to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii

Prior to the Pro Bowl game on Sunday, ESPN aired an inspiring feature of a football player's journey from the projects of Miami to the NFL.

That player was Devonta Freeman.

Jim Trotter of ESPN followed Freeman back to his hometown for a couple of days, learning the backstory of the running back.
