JACKSONVILLE – The Jaguars made an impact on the Pro Bowl Sunday. A big impact.

Jaguars defensive end Calais Campbell, making a third consecutive Pro Bowl appearance and fifth overall, on Sunday earned Defensive Most Valuable Player honors at the 2020 Pro Bowl. Campbell registered a sack/fumble that led to the touchdown that essentially clinched a 38-33 victory for the AFC over the NFC at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla.

Campbell was among three Jaguars players in Sunday's game, with the others – wide receiver DJ Chark Jr. and defensive end Josh Allen – also contributing for the AFC.

Chark, a second-year veteran playing in his first Pro Bowl, caught two passes for 67 yards and a 60-yard touchdown. Chark's touchdown came on a short pass from Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill late in the third quarter and gave the AFC a 31-27 lead.

Allen, a rookie, had a sack and a tackle for loss in the game and also had a blocked extra point in the third quarter.

Campbell's sack came early in the third quarter against Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins. Pittsburgh Steelers defensive end T.J. Watt returned the fumble 82 yards for a touchdown and a 38-27 lead.
