January 29, 1984 is the date of the most lopsided off all Pro Bowl games. Bill Walsh headed the NFC squad as they routed the AFC and coach Chuck Knox 45 - 3 in a game attended by 50,445 people. It was the NFC's sixth Pro Bowl in seven seasons. Led by Washington Redskin QB Joe Theisman, the NFC established records for most points scored and fewest points allowed in a Pro Bowl game. Theisman threw 3 td's, one each to William Andrews, James Lofton and Paul Coffman. St. Louis Ram linbeacker Nolan Cromwell ran an interception back for a 44 yard td. Rookie Eric Dickerson capped off the scoring with a 14 yard rushing td. Overall, an embarassing day for the AFC.
