Buffalo Bills, Indianapolis Colts playing through blizzard Sunday afternoon

Colts have contingency if Bills Tyrod Taylor is out

Colts have contingency if Bills Tyrod Taylor is out

The Bills and Colts met in Buffalo on Sunday for one of the definitive "snow games" of the season.

The Lake Effect is, well, in full effect this weekend in Buffalo, which means tons of snow is being dumped onto western NY. The players are now playing with several inches of snow on the field, and there is no sign of the storm stopping soon.

"This is probably the best snow game I have ever played in", he said.

Despite being backed up, Adam Vinatieri knocked through an extra point tying the game at 7. Those who were at New Era Field, congrats for sticking it out. After starting the game with 17 straight run plays - becoming the first team in the National Football League not to attempt a pass in the first quarter this season - the Colts attempt their first pass attempt, an 11-yard connection from Jacoby Brissett to Mack along the right side. He took the bulk, if not all, of the first-team reps, and Taylor's compromised mobility makes it risky for him to play.

UT finalizing deal with Jeremy Pruitt to be new head coach
With Pruitt gone, one possible replacement would be Tosh Lupoi who is in his third year as Alabama's outside linebackers coach. One of the wildest coaching searches in college football history may be finally coming to an end.

The win keeps Buffalo alive in the race for an AFC play-off spot, while the Colts were eliminated from contention.

Colts safety Matthias Farley intercepted Bills backup quarterback Joe Webb at the Buffalo 28 with 43 seconds left in regulation, but Vinatieri's 43-yard field-goal attempt sailed wide left. It happened after Brissett capped a 19-play, 77-yard march with a 3-yard touchdown to Jack Doyle.

Prescott, who was 20 of 30 for 332 yards also threw a 50-yard scoring pass to Dez Bryant as the Cowboys (7-6) stayed in the playoff hunt with three games left in the regular season. He caught a 21-yard grab from Peterman to get the Bills into the red zone, boding a defender down the sideline, and he leapt for an eight-yard touchdown to the back corner of the end zone.

The weather sucked, so it's understandable Vinatieri missed 33 and 43-yard field goal attempts. How much? A combined 97 times, the most carries in a game since the Chiefs and Bears combined for 100 in a game in 1981.
