Studs and duds from Bills 13-7 win vs. Colts

  • KANSAS CITY MO – NOVEMBER 26 Cornerback Tre’Davious White

Well, we were treated to one of epic proportions on Sunday as the Bills and Indianapolis Colts played out an overtime thriller in a blizzard in Buffalo.

Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy rushed for 158 yards and the game-winning touchdown in Sunday's 13-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Within an hour, the flakes fell so fast that fans sitting in New Era Field's east-end stands were unable to make out the large video scoreboard directly across from them. By kickoff, there were near-whiteout conditions - not to mention inches of snow sitting on the turf - so both teams had to make major adjustments, combining for 97 total run plays to just 38 pass plays on the day.

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

The Colts thought they were going to win the game in regulation when they finally got on the board on a Jacoby Brissett 4-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jack Doyle with 76 seconds left in the game.

Unfortunately for them, their converted 2-pointer was called back due to a penalty and made the extra point that much harder for Adam Vinatieri. Shady averaged 5.8 yards per rush and took off on a 21-yard touchdown run in the waning minutes of overtime to give the Bills the win. McCoy finished with 149 yards rushing to reach the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the sixth time in his career on a slick snow-covered field.

The scene is reminiscent of the Philadelphia Eagles game against the Detroit Lions in 2013, when almost a foot of snow fell on Philadelphia during game time.

Shooting reported at high school in New Mexico
No other injuries were reported, and it was not clear if the shooter died by suicide or was killed by police. Police asked parents to stay away from the school, which was placed on lockdown.

Three plays later, facing third-and-2, McCoy burst through the middle, made a cut to his left and ran untouched into the end zone.

"Thank you to our fans for sticking it out during some Buffalo weather".

"I'm a competitor", Taylor said outside of the locker room after the game.

Frank Gore ran for 57 yards on 18 carries, sharing the load of the offense.

The Indianapolis Colts and Buffalo Bills do battle in sub-zero temperatures in the NY state area. Vinatieri missed wide left forcing overtime. Third-string quarterback Joe Webb came up big after backup Nathan Peterman went down with a concussion, completing a huge third-down pass to keep the final drive alive.
