3. Terrell Owens and Tony Romo, 2008 Pro Bowl
The 2007 Cowboys were one of the most talented in franchise history. They tied a franchise record for wins in the regular season with 13, but bowed out in the divisional round to the New York Giants. That team also sent the most players to the Pro Bowl in NFL history with 13, before the Ravens tied that mark in 2019.
Several Cowboys who made it were named the starters for the game, inlcuding the two men mentioned above. Tony Romo and Terrell Owens had argabaly the best seasons of their careers with the Cowboys that year. Romo threw for over 4,000 yards and Owens had a 1,300-yard season.
In Hawaii, the duo continued their success. Romo found Arizona Cardinals' receiver Larry Fitzgerald to tie the game at seven. After falling behind 24-7, Romo hit Owens for his second touchdown to pull within ten points. Romo was benched and the NFC put in Seattle Seahawks QB Matt Hasselbeck, but Owens was not finished.
Entering the fourth quarter, the AFC held a 30-28 lead. Tampa Bay's Jeff Garcia took over for Hasselbeck and found an old friend of his to get the lead back. He hit Owens for a 6-yard touchdown to give the NFC a 35-30 lead, giving Owens his second score of the day. The NFC held on for a 42-30 victory.
Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was named the game's MVP with 129 rushing yards and two touchdowns, but the award could have easily gone to Owens. Still Owens proved he was still one of the best receivers in the game at the time and Romo showed his career was just starting to take off. The following season marked the last year the duo would play together, but 2007 was a year to remember for both of their careers.
