The three-time Pro Bowler was on Team Deion Sanders, a squad that lost to Team Jerry Rice, 22-21. Unlike recent years, the game featured some hard-hitting defensive play and intensity. Fans seemed to generally like the new format. The old format was NFC vs. AFC and that seemed to have grown a little stale.
Peterson played very well in the all-star extravaganza and had an interception against quarterback Philip Rivers. Despite being on the losing contingent, Peterson was happy to have played in the contest.
"I thought it was cool,” Peterson said via espn.com. "I thought it was different. I enjoyed my stay. I think it got the fans more involved. I think that having the captains kinda got it a little more hyped, especially having personalities like Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders."
Peterson loved playing for Sanders, one of his idols growing up.
"It was great playing for Deion," he said.
That's three Pro Bowls in three years for the talented Peterson.
Expect a lot more to come.
