"This is probably the best snow game I have ever played in", he said. And while snow is a fact of life for upstate NY this time of year, what is unprecedented is watching Adam Vinatieri struggle in the conditions.
Buffalo ended up winning 13-7 in overtime after a LeSean McCoy touchdown run with the home fans celebrating by throwing snowballs and players forming snow angels on the field.
East Rutherford, N.J. • Dak Prescott threw three touchdown passes and the desperate Dallas Cowboys beat NY 30-10 Sunday to spoil Steve Spagnuolo's debut as interim coach and the return of quarterback Eli Manning to the Giants' starting lineup. Without Gore, there would have been little the Colts could have done to generate first downs, much less points.
That's when things went off the rails.
Winter weather alerts issued for parts of Upstate NY for snow
The advisory also includes the five boroughs of New York City, Westchester and Nassau Counties, and Southern Connecticut. Light snow is expected to continue for several hours overnight and end by 5:00 AM with lows in the upper 20's.
The Indianapolis Colts were in it to win it at the end of regulation.
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. The Colts appeared to get a go-ahead two-point conversion to Doyle, then, but an offensive pass interference call on Kamar Aiken wiped it out, and set Vinatieri up for a game-tying extra point attempt from 43 yards. But thanks to a combination of wind, spin, and likely a bit of luck, the ball found its way through the uprights, a development that disappointed 60,000-plus shivering fans gathered in Buffalo. It was a score that held for almost two quarters, as both teams struggled to move the ball as the snowfall continued.
But the boos soon turned to cheers. It was the run game altogether collectively to get it done.
McCoy finished the game with 156 yards and the game-winning score, and he was responsible for nearly half of the Bills' total offense.
Joe Webb loaded up on 2-of-6 passing for 35 yards and also rushed for 27 yards for Buffalo. Other players jumped and danced around to keep warm. They have two games against the Dolphins and a trip to New England to play the Patriots left on their schedule.
