Bills and Colts attempt to play through huge snowstorm
The Buffalo Bills and Indianapolis Colts got much more than they bargained for on Sunday when they played in a huge snowstorm.
It was nearly impossible for the players to see anything from a distance, and snow was falling at such a rapid rate that snowblowers had to be deployed on the field between drives.

Viewing the game was made more difficult by the fact that the Colts were wearing white — ensuring that they more or less blended in with their surroundings.

Not only was it difficult to see anything, it was difficult to do anything. First, it took 18 plays for the Colts to even attempt a pass.
Breaking: The Colts have attempted a pass. Jacoby Brissett’s first throw comes with 6:09 left in second quarter. It was Indy’s 18th play of the game.

The most hilarious part, however, was Bills kicker Adam Vinatieri attempting a field goal — to no avail.

The Bills have had to deal with their fair share of snow issues before. It’s part of playing in Buffalo, and it will happen again — but we don’t normally see it get this bad during a game.
