Richie Incognito earned his trip to the Pro Bowl after a phenomenal season with the Buffalo Bills. The left guard was dominant in run blocking and held his own in pass blocking throughout the year. Over the course of the season, Incognito only struggled once. That performance came in Week 14 against Fletcher Cox and the Philadelphia Eagles.
Cox is one of the defensive linemen in the NFL and after the game Incognito didn't make any excuses. In fact, Incognito said that Cox took his lunch.
“Fletcher Cox, he ate my lunch today,” Incognito said, via the Buffalo News. “He really shows up on film and makes a lot of plays. I got to see it first-hand today. He got me early and often. I didn’t play nearly up to my level. I’m man enough to say I didn’t play well enough for this team to win.Penalties late. Giving up a sack. That’s not a recipe for success.”
Now, both Incognito and Cox are in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl and the offensive guard wanted his picture taken with the one player who gave him fits in 2015. Incognito knew exactly what to say in the caption to the photo:
Tonight, Incognito could get another shot at blocking Cox. Hopefully this time around Incognito is able to keep his lunch.
