Buffalo Bills 2017 Pro Bowl snubs include Incognito, Felton

New, comments

Which Buffalo Bills were passed over for this year’s Pro Bowl? Several make a case.

The Buffalo Bills were able to send two players to the Pro Bowl. We congratulate Lorenzo Alexander and LeSean McCoy! Alexander’s amazing story especially deserves to be highlighted as a 33-year-old first-time all-star. Still, it’s not hard to see that some Bills were right on the cusp but missed out on an invite.

Richie Incognito

Incognito wasn’t selected to the Pro Bowl in 2016, either, but eventually made it as an alternate. It’s hard to argue that the trio of Marshal Yanda, Kelechi Osemele, and David DeCastro haven’t been great this season, though.

Jerome Felton

Like Incognito, Felton has been opening holes for McCoy all year. He has been stellar in this role, even if it doesn’t show up overtly on the stat sheet. The Ravens are 28th in rushing but Kyle Juszcyzyk gets the nod? Come on!

Zach Brown

Brown does indeed hold down the third spot on the individual tackles list with 130 and he’s first among the AFC defenders. He also has four sacks, second-most among the top 73 tacklers in the NFL. (Houston’s Benardrick McKinney has five.) Three passes defended and and an interception add to his resume, where he has been very good this season. Even he thinks he should have made it, taking to Twitter to express his apparent frustration.

Kyle Williams

Williams has been outstanding this year. It’s not his fault the Bills are getting run on. He was out for the game against the Steelers with La’Veon Bell running wild. The four-time Pro Bowler has better numbers this year than his last trip to the all-star game in 2014.
