Buffalo Bills, Indianapolis Colts playing through blizzard Sunday afternoon

Sal Maiorana recaps the Buffalo Bills' 13-6 overtime win over the Indianapolis Colts and says it is the worst weather he's ever seen at a game at Orchard Park.

Clevelanders are well-aware how nasty a lake-effect snowstorm can be.

The teams played in near white-out conditions, and it was snowing so hard, players could barely see the field.

Bills WR Kelvin Benjamin aggravated a right knee injury that had kept him out of the past two games, but was able to return.

With 1:40 remaining in overtime, Bills running back LeSean McCoy broke through the Colts' defensive wall like the flame of Viserion, giving the Bills the walk-off win. But getting closer would have only helped Vinatieri on the snow-covered field where footing was poor.

They last met in Buffalo's 27-14 season-opening loss in 2015 in both players' first games with their respective teams. It happened after Brissett capped a 19-play, 77-yard march with a 3-yard touchdown to Jack Doyle.

McCoy rushed for 158 yards on a career-high 32 carries and surpassed 1,000 yards on the season as the Bills (7-6) weathered relentless snow, swirling winds and near whiteout conditions at New Era Field to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Rather than try a 12-yard 2-point conversion, Pagano opted to send Vinatieri out to try a 43-yard extra point.

One of the many interesting moments in the game came when the Colts called a timeout late in the match so the players could clear the snow away for kicker Adam Vinatieri's point after attempt.

Buffalo got the ball with 1:08 left and Joe Webb - in at quarterback after Peterman took a hit to the head and left after a 2-yard run with 5:09 left in the third - threw an interception at Buffalo's 37. San Francisco added 41-yard field goal after that to secure the victory.

The 97 combined rushing attempts were the most in an National Football League game since the Chiefs and Bears combined for 100 attempts in Week 10 of the 1981 season.
