[BN] Blitz newsletter: Bills Pro Bowlers earn bonus victory

LeSean McCoy scored a touchdown and celebrated in the end zone with Bills teammate Richie Incognito during the AFC squad's 24-23 comeback victory at the Pro Bowl in Orlando, Fla., on Sunday.

"What's the significance of that, you ask?," Jay Skurski writes. "Members of the winning AFC team earned $64,000 each, while those on the NFC squad received $32,000. That extra $32,000 is evidently enough to get even millionaires motivated."

Perhaps that's why Bills safety Jordan Poyer was "salty" about not playing in the game.

Incognito issue ignored: From Skurski's recap, "Not surprisingly, the ABC broadcast team of Sean McDonough and Matt Hasselbeck did not mention Incognito during the game, as he continues to be the subject of an NFL investigation over accusations he made racist comments to Jacksonville Jaguars defensive end Yannick Ngakoue during their playoff game earlier this month. Incognito and Ngakoue reportedly cleared the air during the practice week leading up to Sunday's game."
