HONOLULU (AP) -- At least one key NFL executive thinks play improved at the Pro Bowl this year: Commissioner Roger Goodell.

Goodell said Monday during a one-hour question and answer session on Reddit that he thought the game improved from last year, when players were clearly not trying and were booed by fans in Hawaii.

The NFC dominated the AFC 62-35 on Sunday in a game that had some highlight-quality plays but that quickly became lopsided.

Goodell says he appreciates the commitment from players to make the game better. He says he plans to get detailed input and comment from players over the next few weeks.

The league has said it plans to decide on the future of the Pro Bowl by April, when next season's schedule is expected to be released.
