1951: The inaugural NFL Pro Bowl takes place, with the American Conference beating the National Conference 28-27 in front of 53,676 fans at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. The league's all-star game was the first since 1942, when the annual game was suspended because of travel restrictions put in place during World War II. The NFL first held an all-star game, called the "Pro All-Star Game," in January 1939 featuring the 1938 NFL champion New York Giants taking on a team of NFL all-stars as well as three players from the Hollywood Stars and Los Angeles Bulldogs, who were not members of the league. The league's next four all-star games through 1942 also featured the season's NFL champion taking on an all-star squad.
