However, Benjamin left the game with a knee injury.

Snowy NFL games are nothing new, but conditions were particularly severe in Buffalo on Sunday as the Bills played host to the Indianapolis Colts.

Turns out, Mother Nature wasn't impressed. Some players ran on the field to make snow angels.

The Colts took over at their own 10-yard line, converted one first down and then were faced with third-and-10 at the 25 with 2:55 remaining.

Visibility improved in the second quarter, which finally featured scoring in Buffalo's 2-minute drill.

In Buffalo's 23-3 loss to the New England Patriots last week, Webb got on the field as a gadget quarterback, throwing his first pass since the 2011 season and running three times for 27 yards.

The rookie quarterback, who threw five interceptions in his first career start against the Chargers, had a nice bounce back effort in the elements completing five of his 10 passes for a touchdown.

LiAngelo Ball , a shooting guard, will meet the NBA's draft requirements in June: He'll be 19 years old and a year removed from his high school graduation. "I don't care about the money", LaVar Ball said on Thursday.


The 34-year old from Miami embraced his inner child in the snow with his first 30-carry day since 2011, and his first 130-yard day as a Colt. Webb made that possible because of his ability to play on special teams and fill in as a wide receiver in a pinch. Have thoughts on how the Bills and Colts are performing? The Colts chose to go for two and were successful with another Brissett pass to Doyle, but the Colts were called for offensive pass interference.

The extra work paid off because Vinatieri's 43-yard extra point knuckled its way barely over the crossbar. Indianapolis used its final timeout for players to clear a spot for Adam Vinatieri. Oh and he also had the game-winning 21-yard touchdown run in overtime to win the game.

With the win, the Bills move to 7-6 on the season and keep an outside shot at the postseason alive.

McCoy finished the week with 21.8 FanDuel points on Sunday. "We might not have a chance again".

Meanwhile, Taylor said he was unsure of his status as the team's starting quarterback but was proud of the Bills for finding a way to win with him on the mend.

Coach McDermott said postgame that Benjamin was still being evaluated.
