As a team captain, Buffalo Bills center Eric Wood, his wife, and family host several members of the team’s offensive line on Thanksgiving since they can’t leave town and head home to their own families. Since guard Richie Incognito joined the team, the tradition has taken an ultra-competitive turn.
In 2015, Incognito gained 15 pounds during the annual meal to win the team’s first weight gain challenge. He defended his crown a year ago and was looking to do the same in 2017.
Wood and Incognito have traded barbs on Twitter over the contest, culminating in the third annual competition yesterday. While we don’t know the weigh-in totals, we know who took home this year’s trophy:
Wood, then Incognito, then fellow guard Ryan Groy. The only thing missing are the actual totals. Incognito also shared these fun tweets on Thursday:
Happy Thanksgiving from my Buffalo Bills Football Family to yours! pic.twitter.com/IfoeaRtlcT— Richie Incognito (@68INCOGNITO) November 23, 2017
Second runner up Groy also shared a tweet on Thanksgiving, bouncing a baby and making an announcement about his own family. Congrats, Ryan!
