AFC Championship Game Should Send Richie Incognito to Pro Bowl

Robert Mayer-US PRESSWIRE; 11/25/12

The Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots face off on Sunday, with the winner headed to the Super Bowl. Once the game is complete, the result - whichever way it ends up - should mean that Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito will officially be a Pro Bowler.

The AFC Championship game this Sunday will send either the Baltimore Ravens or the New England Patriots to New Orleans for the Super Bowl. It will also send Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito to Honolulu for the Pro Bowl.

According to the rules established by the NFL when they moved the Pro Bowl from the weekend after the Super Bowl to the weekend preceding the championship game, players of teams in the Super Bowl will not take part in the all-star game. Once they are officially removed, alternates are slotted into their respective positions.

Currently, the three guards on the AFC roster are the Patriots' Logan Mankins, the Ravens' Marshal Yanda, and the Houston Texans' Wade Smith. As soon as the Patriots or Ravens are AFC Champions, Mankins or Yanda will be removed, and the first alternate will be slotted into the position. Who is that first alternate? Incognito.

Once he is officially added to the roster, this will mark Incognito's first Pro Bowl. He will join defensive end Cameron Wake and long snapper John Denney as Dolphins representatives in the game.
