As expected, rookie Nathan Peterman will make the second start of his National Football League career Sunday afternoon at cold and snowy New Era Field. He didn't throw five interceptions, or even one for that matter.
"He's from the Harrisburg area so he's a PA guy", said head coach Sean McDermott.
With Taylor inactive, Joe Webb will serve as the backup quarterback, and it's possible Webb will get some snaps if the Bills decide to use the wildcat package they unveiled last week.
"Is that right?" McCoy said when reminded of his feat. It happened after Brissett capped a 19-play, 77-yard march with a 3-yard touchdown to Jack Doyle. A few plays later, McCoy scampered in for a 21-yard touchdown that gave him 147 yards for the game.
Fourteen of McCoy's 100-yard rushing days have now come in a Bills uniform.
Benjamin bodies: Fans found out why the Bills front office felt the need to trade for Kelvin Benjamin.
A parade of stadium workers regularly made their way on the field with snow blowers on their backs to uncover the yard lines. However Taylor suffered a patellar tendon contusion and didn't finish the game.
Yet for the Bills mafia, there was never a question of not showing up. Rick Dennison, the team's offensive coordinator, needs to be questioned once again.
Just like that, the Bills escaped with a 13-7 win to improve to 7-6 and keep their slime playoff hopes alive for another week. Additionally, fourth-down wasn't pretty. Without that flag, the Colts win that game, run their record to 4-9, and the dream of a top-three draft pick would have vanished. Despite the conditions, the show went on.
The weather affected almost every aspect of play.
The teams adjusted to the blizzard conditions as one would expect, celebrating sacks not with choreographed dances, but rather with snowball fights. When Shady ran in the winning score, players rushed from the sideline and slid in the snow.
So much snow accumulated on the roof of the first-level suites that fans began building snowmen. But there was an ugly side of it all.
