Buffalo Bills coach Rex Ryan and his twin brother, new Bills assistant head coach/defense Rob Ryan, were in attendance Saturday evening in San Francisco for NFL Honors, and were acknowledged by host Conan O'Brien during the league's annual awards show.
During O'Brien's opening monologue, the comedian mentioned New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick's recent black eye, saying, "Nobody knows where it came from, but the list of suspects has been narrowed down to anyone that has spent time with Bill Belichick." The camera immediately panned to Rex Ryan, who was laughing. As the shot of Ryan appeared on main screen and the crowd laughed, Ryan jokingly raised his fist.
Later, during a segment comparing some of the audience members to famous actors, a photo of Rob Ryan appeared on the screen next to the image of God from Michelangelo's painting in the Sistine Chapel. Rob Ryan then ran his fingers through his flowing gray hair for the crowd.
Both Rex and Rob Ryan were on stage later in the event to present the NFL's fantasy player of the year award.
The Ryan brothers were joined by Bills president Russ Brandon and co-owner Kim Pegula on the red carpet earlier:
