Ford was selected by the Buffalo Bills in the second round of the 2019 NFL Draft. The Bills used the 38th overall pick to select Ford.
During his first season, Ford split his time between playing guard and tackle. However, after starting tackle Ty Nsekhe suffered an ankle injury, Ford was given more opportunities to play tackle.
As the Bills were moving into field goal range in overtime of their playoff game against the Houston Texans in the Wild Card Round, Ford was flagged for an illegal blindside block. This led to the Bills losing the game.
The contentious penalty was a contributing factor in Buffalo’s loss of the game, which also contributed to the perception that the penalty was unfair. Many Bills supporters contributed to a GoFundMe in an effort to offset Ford’s $28,075 fine from the NFL for the block.
