Redskins linebacker Lorenzo Alexander led the NFC defense with five tackles in a 62-35 victory over the AFC in the Pro Bowl Sunday night.

Selected to his first Pro Bowl as a special teams player, Alexander wound up seeing significant time at inside linebacker as well. All five of his tackles came on defense. One of them was for a loss of yardage.

Alexander took over for teammate London Fletcher, who started in his fourth Pro Bowl appearance and recorded four tackles.

Fellow Redskins linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who also made his first Pro Bowl as a reserve, recorded two tackles.

Left tackle Trent Williams watched the game from the sideline two days after receiving stitches to his head after being assaulted in a Honolulu night club.
