Despite multiple attempts to get Vonta Leach a touchdown during the 2011 season, the Ravens fullback always came up short of the end zone.
On Sunday night during the Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Leach got another chance to score. This time he made the most of his opportunity.
With 11:45 left in the fourth quarter, Leach got the handoff from Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton at the 1 and busted through the line for a touchdown. Leach's score, followed by Sebastian Janikowski's extra point, gave the AFC a 45-35 lead. The AFC went on to beat the NFC, 59-41.
Leach finished the game with three carries for 7 yards, and one catch for 13 yards. He was joined on the AFC roster by three Ravens teammates: linebacker Ray Lewis, and offensive linemen Marshal Yanda and Ben Grubbs,
