For what may have been the last Pro Bowl ever, there were a couple of firsts -- like an NFC center snapping the ball to an AFC quarterback.

Early in the first quarter before the game turned into a blowout, Green Bay center Jeff Saturday, who announced days before the Pro Bowl that he would retire after the game, ran onto the field when Peyton Manning and the AFC were on offense.

Out of the 14 years Saturday spent in the NFL, he snapped the ball to the four-time MVP for 12 of them. So the six-time Pro Bowler switched sides for a play and snapped the ball to Manning one last time.

After the play, handoff to Arian Foster who went nowhere, Manning handed the ball to Saturday. The 37-year-old ran off the field to a standing ovation.

"That's something special I'll always remember," Saturday said after the play, via CBS Sports. "He's a class act all the way across the board. This is what it's all about."
