Bills report card: Buffalo win in epic snow game saves Bills' season

Monday, 11 Dec, 2017

His 32 carries were a career high, while the 156 yards were his most this season. Things still looked dicey for the Bills given the foot of snow that was on the ground. The two AFC opponents clashed in the midst of a "significant lake effect snow storm", causing predictably abnormal conditions.

It wasn't the first time McCoy has had success in snowy conditions.

The third-down completion moved Buffalo to the Indianapolis Colts' 27-yard line with 1:51 left in overtime.

The weather affected almost every aspect of play.

The Bills have used two different quarterbacks in the past three weeks and there could be another change when the Bills host the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, CBS, DirecTV). Peterman was starting in place of Tyrod Taylor, who was sidelined by a bruised left knee. Third-string quarterback Joe Webb completed a one-yard pass and ran for three yards to get the Bills to a 3rd-and-6 at the two-minute warning.

The Colts converted the two-point conversion on another pass to Doyle, but receiver Kamar Aiken was called for offensive pass interference.

In a odd twist, Adam Vinatieri looked like he was going to be the one to put the Patriots over the top. The NFL's oldest layer hit a 43-yard wobbler that hooked in from the right and just sneaked over the crossbar. However, Vinatieri missed a 43-yard field goal. Gore rushed for 130 yards on a career-high 36 careers. It was his first 100-yard game in 15 outings, since gaining 101 yards in a 34-6 win at Miami on December 12.

The Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts battled through a blizzard during their National Football League match on Monday (NZT), which made visibility near impossible and covered the field and line markings in heavy snow. They came out in full force for the team's game against the Colts, even though there wasn't much to see. He sat out practice during the week, and rookie Nathan Peterman could start against the Colts.

As it is, the Pats can do just that with a victory over the Dolphins in Miami tomorrow night.
