Richie Incognito says 'I want to fight' for Bills coach Rex Ryan

BY Nunzio Ingrassia • December 14, 2016

After the Buffalo Bills suffered their fifth loss in their past seven games, many assumed Rex Ryan’s fate with the team was all but sealed. And that still might be the case.

But that doesn’t mean that everyone has given up on the embattled Bills coach.

Veteran guard Richie Incognito voiced his support of Ryan, who is 14-15 since taking over in Buffalo in 2015.

"I want to fight for Rex," Incognito said, via the Buffalo News. "I want to go out there and get wins and keep him around here. ... For me, personally, it's like a challenge. The challenge has been accepted. There's this bad sentiment out there. And if it's true or not, I can directly impact the outcome and that's by playing well and playing on a consistent basis and leading this team."

If the Bills are to make a late-season charge, they couldn’t have asked for a better opponent this weekend. Buffalo takes on the winless Browns at home, then faces a Dolphins team that lost its starting quarterback, and finishes the season against the Jets, who are last in the AFC East.
