The Bills/Jaguars playoff game that took place on Sunday afternoon was easily one of the ugliest of the entire NFL season. The two teams managed to muster up just 13 points total during Jacksonville’s 10-3 win. According to one Jaguars player, the only thing uglier than the game itself was some of the language one of the Bills players allegedly used.
Shortly after the Jaguars won the game and advanced to the next round of the NFL postseason, where they will play the Steelers, Jacksonville defensive end Yannick Ngakoue took to Twitter and accused Bills offensive lineman Richie Incognito of using "weak racist slurs" on the field. Incognito is, of course, the player who was once accused of bullying his own teammate, Jonathan Martin, while both were with the Dolphins. That triggered an extensive investigation and, eventually, an Incognito suspension. Ngakoue made mention of that scandal in a hashtag he included at the end of his tweet.
Incognito himself hasn’t yet responded to Ngakoue’s claim. But his fellow Bills offensive lineman Dion Dawkins did come to his aid on Twitter. He said he didn’t hear Incognito make any racist slurs during the game on Sunday. He also told Ngakoue to "cut the BS."
While Dawkins may not have heard Incognito use any inappropriate language, the NFL is still reportedly going to look into the accusation. According to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport, the league has already launched an investigation and will try to find out what Incognito said, if anything, to set Ngakoue off.
