With the score tied at 34 in the fourth quarter, the players are starting to play harder.

That’s because, as ESPN said, it’s “money time.”

There is a $22,500 bonus difference between what a winning player receives and a losing player gets. That’s some pretty sweet bank, even if you are a professional athlete.

As evidence that they are taking it more seriously, the AFC’s Mario Williams (Texans) sacked Tony Romo to hold the NFC to a fourth-quarter field goal.

Following the score, the AFC inserted its starting offense back into the game, including quarterback Matt Schaub. Vincent Jackson (San Diego) also threw a huge crack block on Packers linebacker Clay Matthews.
