Indianapolis Colts vs Buffalo Bills

11 December 2017

The two AFC opponents clashed in the midst of a "significant lake effect snow storm", causing predictably abnormal conditions. Neither offense could really throw the ball and the television broadcast was nearly worthless because you could barely see what was happening on the field due to the massive amount of snow falling from the sky - the Colts wearing all white didn't help matters.

Yet those who were still left in the snow-covered bleachers at the end of the game got to watch the Bills' pull off what looked impossible.

They last met in Buffalo's 27-14 season-opening loss in 2015 in both players' first games with their respective teams.

Matthew Stafford passed for 381 yards with an injured throwing hand and set up Matt Prater for a 46-yard field goal in the closing seconds Sunday, helping the Detroit Lions remain in playoff contention with a 24-21 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The snap from Luke Rhodes to rookie holder Rigoberto Sanchez, who played collegiately at Hawaii, was high, and Vinatieri's kick had no chance as it was low and wide left.
