LAUDERHILL, Fla. | NFL commissioner Roger Goodell says switching the Pro Bowl to the week before the Super Bowl is already a success because the game is drawing more attention than ever.

The All-Star game is traditionally held the week following the Super Bowl. Sunday’s game marks the first time in three decades the Pro Bowl is being played somewhere other than Honolulu.

The Pro Bowl will return to Hawaii for 2011 and 2012. No decision has been made on whether it will be played before or after the Super Bowl in those years.

Goodell spoke Thursday after he and several Pro Bowl players helped more than 200 volunteers build a playground at a school near Fort Lauderdale.
