2013 Pro Bowl

The 2013 Pro Bowl was the National Football League's sixty-third[1] annual all-star game which featured players from the 2012 season. It took place at 2:30 pm Hawaii–Aleutian Time (UTC−10:00; 7:30 pm Eastern Time) on Sunday, January 27, 2013 at the Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The game was televised nationally by NBC in place of CBS. The game was delayed for 30 minutes due to flash flood warnings.[2]

John Fox of the AFC West Denver Broncos led the AFC "home team" against a "visiting" NFC team that was coached by the Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy of the NFC North. These coaches were selected for coaching the highest seeded team to lose in the Divisional Round of the playoffs, which has been the convention since the 2009 Pro Bowl. Ed Hochuli was the game referee.[3]

Players on the winning team (NFC) each earned $50,000, while players on the losing team (AFC) earned $25,000.[4]

The Houston Texans and San Francisco 49ers had the most Pro Bowl selections with nine. The Kansas City Chiefs, despite only winning two games, had six selections. Six teams, the Carolina Panthers, Philadelphia Eagles, St. Louis Rams, Tennessee Titans, Jacksonville Jaguars, and San Diego Chargers, had no selections. Three rookie quarterbacks (Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Russell Wilson) were selected, which is the most in Pro Bowl history.[5]

Broadcasting

The game was televised nationally by NBC after Super Bowl XLVII broadcaster CBS declined to exercise their right to air the game, even though that network was using the game as part of the plot of an episode of Hawaii Five-0 to be aired three weeks later. This was the second of three consecutive years that NBC carried the game, since CBS also decided not to broadcast the 2012 Pro Bowl and FOX would later decline to carry the 2014 game.[26] NBC will also broadcast the 2014 game as Super Bowl broadcaster Fox had declined to carry the game.

2012 All-Pro Team

There are three 2012 All-Pro Teams—one each named by the Associated Press (AP), Pro Football Writers Association (PFWA), and Sporting News—for performance in the 2012 NFL season. While none of these have the official imprimatur of the NFL (whose official recognition is nomination to the 2013 Pro Bowl), they are included (separately) in the NFL Record and Fact Book. Any player selected to any of the teams can be described as an "All-Pro."

The AP team, with first- and second-team selections, was chosen by a national panel of 50 NFL writers; the Sporting News selection process used a panel of 27 NFL coaches and executives, while the PFWA team is chosen by polling its 300+ members.

2012 Cleveland Browns season

The 2012 Cleveland Browns season was the franchise's 64th season as a professional sports franchise and its 60th season as a member of the National Football League. Although the team improved on its record to 5–11 this 2012 season from its 4–12 finish in 2011, the team still placed fourth in the AFC North. The team also failed to break its 9-year playoff drought, the longest in franchise history. The 2012 season was the third season under the leadership of team president Mike Holmgren and general manager Tom Heckert and the second season under head coach Pat Shurmur. The Browns also had Jimmy Haslam as their new owner, after buying the team from Randy Lerner. The Browns played all of their home games at Cleveland Browns Stadium in Cleveland, Ohio.

2013 Trinidad and Tobago Charity Shield

The 2013 Trinidad and Tobago Charity Shield (known as the Digicel Charity Shield for sponsorship reasons) was the second edition of the Charity Shield, which is a football match that opened the 2013–14 Pro League season. The match was played on 6 September 2013, between the winners of the previous season's TT Pro League and Pro Bowl competitions. The match was a rematch of the inaugural Charity Shield contested by the 2013 Pro Bowl winners, W Connection, and the champions of the 2012–13 Pro League, Defence Force.

The Savonetta Boys secured the Charity Shield for the second consecutive year after defeating the Teteron Boys 4–2 at the Hasely Crawford Stadium. The match witnessed a goal spree in the second forty-five minutes after the two teams combined for six goals during the second-half. Hashim Arcia opened the scoring in the 46th minute before Richard Roy leveled for Defence Force two minutes later. However, a goal each from Silvio Spann and Stefano Rijssel secured the win for W Connection. After scoring in the 70th minute from a penalty kick, Arcia was awarded the Man of the Match for recording a brace.
