The 2014 NFL Pro Bowl actually showed competition on Sunday, and many fans were surprised and delighted with it as the game was actually worth watching. To Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, it's a different story when he was delivered a crushing hit from teammate Derrick Johnson.

Charles, who is on Team Sanders, was hit hard by Team Rice's Johnson during the game, giving a shock to one of the league's best running backs. However, he didn't make any excuses.

"I didn't expect it, but he's out there doing his thing," Charles said. "I can't get mad at him -- it's just about football, and you've just got to be ready."

Johnson helped lead Team Rice to a 22-21 victory, while also becoming the team's defensive MVP. He was not concerned about hurting Charles, who is a month removed from suffering a concussion in the Chiefs' Wild Card playoff loss to the Indianapolis Colts.

"If you stand back, he's going to make you look pretty bad," said Johnson, who had nine tackles in the game. "So I had to go out and really give it to him.

"I would never try to hurt my teammate at all, but compete a little bit."

Both players were appearing in their third Pro Bowls. Charles had 43 rushing yards in the game.

Johnson shared his thoughts on hitting Charles on Twitter, while also giving praise for his teammate:



Johnson wasn't the only player who hit his own teammate in the Pro Bowl. See what Cleveland Browns safety TJ Ward did to wide receiver Josh Gordon here.
