Bills send two to Pro Bowl

McCoy and Alexander in; Zach Brown unhappy to be out

Orchard Park, NY - LeSean McCoy and Lorenzo Alexander will play postseason football. 

Both were named to the AFC Pro Bowl roster Tuesday. 

It's McCoy's 5th trip to the NFL all-star event and his first with the Bills. He'll join Le'Veon Bell and DeMarco Murray in the AFC backfield. 

McCoy has been the bellcow for the Bills offense this season.

He's got 1,129 yards and 12 touchdowns on the ground with  333 receiving yards and a score on 44 receptions.

The Bills lead the league in both rushing yards (2,290), yards per carry (5.52) and rank third in offensive touchdowns (44).

Alexander is tops on the Bills with 11.5 sacks and is going to the Pro Bowl for the first time as a defensive player. 

He went to the Pro Bowl in 2012 as a special teamer from Washington. 

Among the notable snubs are Kyle Williams, Richie Incognito and Zach Brown. 

Williams is having his best season in recent memory and is, arguably, playing better than Alexander. Incognito is again thriving in Buffalo's run-heavy offense.

Brown, like Alexander, was a no-name addition to the Bills defense who became a star. He's made a team high 130 tackles to go along with four sacks. 

Brown was disappointed not to make the team and took his displeasure to twitter. 

The Pro Bowl is being played in Orlando this year, the week before Super Bowl LI. 

The game is Sunday, January 29th with a skills competition for the first time ever the Thursday before the game.
