The 2014 Pro Bowl featured a first-of-its-kind format where conferences didn't make up the teams, but the usual players still dominated and stuffed the box score in this year's event.

The best from the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks weren't able to make it due to Super Bowl XLVIII, but most of the other top players from the remaining 30 teams were in action on Jan. 26. It left us with some unforgettable moments from Team Jerry Rice's 22-21 victory over Team Deion Sanders and some big statistical performances from a select few.

Pro Bowl stats are always spread out with many players receiving time, but the best were still able to stand out.

Here is a look at the top finishers at each position as we highlight the best of the best.

Nick Foles, QB, Team Sanders

Each of the six quarterbacks in action in the Pro Bowl surpassed 80 yards passing, but Nick Foles took home the offensive MVP award thanks to his performance in a losing effort.

Foles went 7-of-10 for 89 yards and a touchdown while playing the entire fourth quarter for Team Sanders, leading them on a go-ahead touchdown drive before Team Rice won it in the final minutes. 

B/R's own Bryn Swartz recapped how epic Foles' season has been paired up with his Pro Bowl performance:

Nick Foles had himself a breakout season in 2013, and his Pro Bowl performance was just an indication of that.

Josh Gordon was the go-to receiver for Team Rice no matter who the quarterback was, and it turned into a big day for the Cleveland Browns wideout.

Gordon caught six passes for 66 yards and a touchdown, helping lead Team Rice to a win in what turned into an epic comeback win.

But it wasn't without excitement, as Gordon was even flipped over by his own teammate during the game per the NFL:

Team Rice had other options on the field in Jimmy Graham, Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall. But no receiver saw the ball thrown their way more than Josh Gordon during the Pro Bowl. 


Alfred Morris, RB, Team Sanders

Alfred Morris wasn't one of the more featured backs in the run game during the 2014 Pro Bowl, but he found other ways to make his presence felt.

The Redskins rusher was a big target out of the backfield, catching four balls for 69 yards, including a 27-yarder. He only carried the ball twice for four yards, but Morris made up for it by being a huge help in the passing game.

Morris was picked over for Jamaal Charles and Eddie Lacy for carries out of the backfield but didn't let that get in the way of him impacting the game in a big way.
