NFL Pro Bowl skills competition live results: Updated standings, winners, highlights from 2024 AFC vs. NFC games

The NFC narrowly earned a win at the 2024 Pro Bowl Games, defeating the AFC 64-59, but the skills competitions were largely one-sided.

While the AFC made up ground in the flag football contest, the NFC managed win after win in individual skills contests  \and padded their lead every time the AFC cut into it on the field. 

The NFC won each skill competition other than dodgeball, high stakes, and kick-tac-toe, dominating in newly added tug-of-war on Sunday and showcasing strength in both the gridiron gauntlet and move-the-chains.

This Pro Bowl format makes each competition critical, so the points won by CeeDee Lamb’s Madden skills and Bryan Anger’s golf game can’t be ignored. Without wins in both of those competitions, the AFC would’ve walked away with a win.

As the NFL tinkers with the lineup and continues to figure out the best format for the Pro Bowl Games, it’s clear the players are having fun. The NFC prevailed by a wide margin in this year’s skills contests, and a strong defensive finish to the flag football game kept the lead intact for the conference.

Here’s a look at the final Pro Bowl standings and complete skills competition results.

NFL Pro Bowl skills competition scoring

The winning conference in each skill competition will earn points, with more points available during the first two flag football games before the final flag football game.

There are nine skills competitions this year, up from eight in 2023, plus the three flag football games. Tug-of-war has been added to the lineup, while the closest-to-the-pin competition replaces last year’s longest drive contest in a golf shakeup and high stakes replaces the lightning round.
