Winners and losers from the Buffalo Bills’ win against the Indianapolis Colts

Winners and losers from the Buffalo Bills’ win against the Indianapolis Colts

A lot more winners than losers The Buffalo Bills kept themselves afloat to fight for the final wild card spot in their win against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. It wasn't a pretty win by any means, but plenty of player turned in solid performances given the game conditions. There are a lot more winners than there are losers this week. Winners QB Nathan PetermanDespite his injury, Peterman actually played pretty well for the limited amount of chances he had. In one of the worst snow storms during a game in Buffalo, Peterman somehow managed to complete 5 passes on 10 attempts, totaling 57...

Buffalo Bills do not control their own destiny to AFC playoffs

Buffalo Bills do not control their own destiny to AFC playoffs

The Ravens have the inside track. While Buffalo Bills fans argue over whether the team is in sixth or eight place in the AFC standings the only thing that matters, really, is that the team does not control their own destiny to the postseason. Buffalo (7-6) is tied with the Baltimore Ravens (7-6) and when you go through the list of tiebreakers, the Bills currently eek out out the Ravens in strength of victory based on a technicality. Record vs. common opponents comes before strength of victory in the tiebreaker hierarchy, but there is a four-game minimum to apply this tiebreaker. Buffalo and...

AFC playoff picture: New England Patriots fail to clinch AFC East on Monday night

The Bills are still going to need some help. After their thrilling, snow-filled victory in overtime over the Indianapolis Colts, the Buffalo Bills (7-6) look to the AFC playoff standings and received a little bit of help in Week 14. On Monday night, the New England Patriots (10-3) failed to clinch the AFC East, losing to the Miami Dolphins. The division is still in play with three games remaining, though four consecutive losses by the Patriots seems unlikely. The biggest help during Week 14 came from the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals, who knocked off the Baltimore Ravens...

Bills-Colts snow results in TV ratings spike

Bills-Colts snow results in TV ratings spike

Snowvertime game resulted in the second-highest local ratings in 17 years. No doubt due to the snow storm that blanketed most of the Buffalo area, the Buffalo Bills 13-7 victory against the Indianapolis Colts received the second-highest local ratings for a regular season game since 2000. Apparently, most Western New Yorkers decided they’d rather stay indoors and watch Bills football en masse instead of shovel, as the game pulled in an average Nielson rating of 46.7 and managed to peak as high as 53.7. The highest-rated Bills game since 2000 was another snow game, a Dick Jauron engineered...

New England Patriots vs. Miami Dolphins: Monday Night Football Buffalo Bills chat

If you think the Bills can still win the division, you’ll root for the Dolphins. The Buffalo Bills are currently on the outside looking in at the AFC playoff picture. With just three games left, there are still teams like the Miami Dolphins who have a very unlikely chance of getting their foot in the door. The New England Patriots are 10-2 and are on the road to take on the 5-7 Miami Dolphins. New England is in a fight with Pittsburgh for the number one seed and home field advantage for the playoffs. If the Patriots lose out and the Bills win out, the Bills will win the division for the...

Buffalo Bills injury report: Kelvin Benjamin, Tyrod Taylor day-to-day

Sean McDermott said its too early to tell if Benjamin will play vs. Dolphins The Buffalo Bills (7-6) kept their playoff hopes alive thanks to Sunday’s 13-7 overtime triumph over the Indianapolis Colts (3-10) in a game played in a lake-effect snowstorm. Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin, acquired from the Carolina Panthers prior to the NFL trade deadline, hauled in the first receiving touchdown of his Bills career late in the first half to give the Bills a 7-0 lead. Making his first appearance since suffering a torn meniscus in his right knee Nov. 19 vs. the Los Angeles Chargers, Benjamin...

Analysis: LeSean McCoy's touchdown run sprung by Richie Incognito

Analysis: LeSean McCoy's touchdown run sprung by Richie Incognito

What a great block. In a game that will be tough to forget, the Buffalo Bills beat the elements and the Indianapolis Colts Sunday led by a fantastic performance by their star running back LeSean McCoy. McCoy who grew up in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, looked like one of the few players who knew how to run in the snow (maybe from experience?) and delivered several big runs. No run was bigger than his 21-yard touchdown to win the game in overtime. It was 3rd and 4 with 1:40 left in overtime, when Stephen Hauschka ran onto the field and it looked like the Bills were thinking about kicking a field...

Familiar free agent quarterback options for the Buffalo Bills after Tyrod Taylor, Nathan Peterman injuries

Familiar free agent quarterback options for the Buffalo Bills after Tyrod Taylor, Nathan Peterman injuries

The Bills need to sign a quarterback in the next day or so. The Buffalo Bills are already looking at potential free agent quarterbacks after injuries to both Tyrod Taylor and Nathan Peterman left sometimes-receiver, sometimes-special-teamer Joe Webb as the team’s only option under center on Sunday. That player would need to be ready soon, too. Taylor was originally injured on the first play of the team’s Week 13 match-up against the New England Patriots. He played a good chunk of the game but was forced out with pain in the second half. He did practice in a limited capacity this week...

Sean McDermott tried to punt away the Buffalo Bills’ season against Indianapolis Colts

Sean McDermott tried to punt away the Buffalo Bills’ season against Indianapolis Colts

This was a horrible move. We are very happy here at Buffalo Rumblings that the Buffalo Bills won the snow-vertime game against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, 13-7. We are very happy that LeSean McCoy is on our side. What we were not happy about was a decision late in overtime by Bills head coach Sean McDermott, who tried to punt away the team’s postseason hopes. Let’s set the stage. Near the end of regulation, the Colts had seemingly won the game twice. After a 19-play, 10-minute drive where they converted on two fourth downs, the Colts scored a touchdown. On the ensuing try, they...

The Bills are now going to need some help. After their thrilling, snow-filled victory in overtime over the Indianapolis Colts, the Buffalo Bills look to the AFC playoff standings and received a little bit of help in Week 14. With a game against the Miami Dolphins looming in Week 15, Buffalo still has a halfway decent chance of making the playoffs for the first time since the Xbox was invented. The biggest help came from the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Arizona Cardinals, who knocked off the Baltimore Ravens and Tennessee Titans, respectively. While both Tennessee and Baltimore remain in...

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens: Sunday Night Football Buffalo Bills chat

The Bills need a Steelers win to help them with their playoff hopes After an important 13-7 victory today, the Buffalo Bills are still very much in the playoff hunt. For the remainder of the season, they'll need some help throughout the rest of the AFC. Tonight, the Pittsburgh Steelers take on the 7-5 Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens are currently in the 6th playoff spot and the final wild card position. A Pittsburgh win would give the Bills a chance to make the most of their last three games and sneak into the playoffs. The Steelers are 10-2 and fighting with the Patriots for home-field...

Buffalo Bills 13, Indianapolis Colts 7: Snow worries, it was an ice win

Buffalo Bills 13, Indianapolis Colts 7: Snow worries, it was an ice win

Blizzard-like conditions kept this close, but LeSean McCoy saved the day On a snowy, windy, chilly day in Buffalo, the Bills escaped a closer-than-they’d-prefer game against the Indianapolis Colts with a win, 13-7. LeSean McCoy saved the day, putting the team on his back with a 21-yard touchdown run in overtime. Heavy snow and high winds kept both teams limited. Early on the visibility suffered, and both teams opted to go for fourth down conversions and invest heavily in running the ball to deal with the conditions. A Colts drive came close to Buffalo’s end zone, but Adam Vinateri...

Nathan Peterman takes hard hit in open field, leaves game

Peterman took a hit to the head as he dove forward During the third quarter of the Buffalo Bills’ game against the Indianapolis Colts, rookie quarterback Nathan Peterman took a hard hit to the head while diving for a first down in the open field, and was taken out of the game for precautionary reasons. Nathan Peterman slides headfirst and it did not look good. pic.twitter.com/33qNBDZMzh— Prescott Rossi (@PrescottRossi) December 10, 2017 The Bills went into their game against the Colts with a weak depth chart at quarterback.

Watch: Buffalo Bills two-minute drive in the snow a thing of beauty

Watch: Buffalo Bills two-minute drive in the snow a thing of beauty

This is so great. Starting on their own 20-yard line with no timeouts inside the two-minute warning in a blinding snowstorm, no one expected the Buffalo Bills to drive it down and score the first points in their game against the Indianapolis Colts. But that’s exactly what they did and they take a 7-0 lead into halftime. The drive featured three plays over 20 yards in an offensive explosion on a field where you can’t see anything but the constantly-cleared yard lines every five yards. The first big chunk came on a LeSean McCoy run where he found the open field and made guys miss. Shady...

Buffalo Bills 7, Indianapolis Colts 0: Second half open thread

Buffalo Bills 7, Indianapolis Colts 0: Second half open thread

It’s a quintessential snow game today. The Buffalo Bills are locked in a scoreless tie with the Indianapolis Colts through two quarters of a blustery snowstorm at New Era Field. Whiteout conditions, especially in the first quarter, have cut down the teams’ playbooks and forced them to abandon typical strategies. The Colts didn’t attempt a single pass until halfway through the second quarter, while the Bills only have five. Both teams have been hesitant to go to the kicking game, with the heavy snow hurting traction, and they called on a few fourth down conversion attempts at the worst...

Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills: players, fans dealing with blinding snowfall

Heavy snows in Orchard Park, turn Indianapolis Colts at Buffalo Bills into a winter wonderland of football The weather outside is frightful. However, fans of the winning team between the Colts and Bills will recall this one as delightful. If to the game you’ve decided to go, you got some snow, got some snow, got some snow. As this week’s game kicks off in Orchard Park, the weather has officially decided to be a factor. Buffalo Bills defensive backs could have some trouble locating the Colts’ receivers who are expertly camouflaged for today’s game. To contrast this, the Bills will...

Buffalo Bills-Indianapolis Colts first half open thread

A blustery, cold day is the backdrop for a battle of backup quarterbacks Who’s ready for Nathan Peterman versus Jacoby Bissett?! A matchup of backup quarterbacks between the Buffalo Bills and the Indianapolis Colts in sub-freezing December weather isn’t quite what most fans anticipated when the schedule was released, but alas, here we are. While the potential for lake-effect snow may have been easy to anticipate, a knee injury for Tyrod Taylor and a season-long recovery from shoulder surgery for Andrew Luck may have been harder to predict. The Bills sit at 6-6, comfortably in their...

Buffalo Bills inactives, Week 14: Tyrod Taylor out

Buffalo’s list of inactive players includes its regular starting quarterback The Buffalo Bills are clinging to the slimmest of slim playoff hopes in Week 14. The Indianapolis Colts come to Orchard Park at 3-9, all but eliminated from playoff contention. The Bills will need to win an eminently winnable game with Nathan Peterman under center, and if the rookie flops in his second start, he’ll only have Joe Webb to back him up. Here are the Bills’ inactives for Sunday. QB Tyrod Taylor Buffalo’s starting quarterback was a game-time decision today with a bruised patellar tendon, and the...
