The Buffalo Bills announced today that Bills G Richie Incognito has been named to this year's Pro Bowl.
Incognito has been named to the roster as an injury replacement for Arizona Cardinals G Mike Iupati. The selection marks the second time in Incognito's career that he has earned Pro Bowl honors after being named a Pro Bowler with the Miami Dolphins in 2012.
Incognito started all 16 games for the Bills in 2015 at guard and helped pave the way to the Bills having both the top rushing attack in the NFL in yards (2,432) and yards per carry (4.78). The Bills also had three rushers surpass the 500-yard mark (LeSean McCoy-895, Tyrod Taylor-568, Karlos Williams-517) for the first time since 1962. Incognito is the first Bills guard headed to the Pro Bowl since Ruben Brown in 2003.
Along with QB Tyrod Taylor, RB LeSean McCoy and C Eric Wood, this marks the first time the Bills have had four Pro Bowlers on the offensive side of the ball since 2002 when four Bills (QB Drew Bledsoe, G Ruben Brown, RB Travis Henry, WR Eric Moulds) earned Pro Bowl honors.
The 2016 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 31 and televised live on ESPN from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. Tickets are on sale through ProBowl.com. Fans may also purchase individual game tickets through Ticketmaster by calling 1-800-745-3000. Tickets start as low as $30.
The 2016 Pro Bowl will continue using the revised game format that debuted with the 2014 Pro Bowl, with NFL Legends captains having final say over Pro Bowl Draft decisions. The Pro Bowl will remain "unconferenced," with several key playing rules changed. Players have been selected without regard to conference in voting by fans, coaches and players and will be later assigned to Pro Bowl teams via a fantasy football-style draft.
