In a game that was dominated by the snow, a walk off touchdown in overtime gave the Buffalo Bills a crucial 13-7 win against the Indianapolis Colts and kept their playoff hopes alive.

A snow-filled afternoon at New Era Field couldn’t stop the Buffalo Bills from coming away with a much needed win over the Indianapolis Colts.

The Bills managed to bounce back after last week’s loss to the New England Patriots, thanks in large part to a strong rushing attack led by LeSean McCoy.

With the snow virtually eliminating the passing game the Bills leaned on McCoy, who ran for a season high 156 rushing yards and scored the game winning touchdown in overtime.

On defense the Buffalo Bills, with help from the elements, managed to keep the game low-scoring to give their offense the opportunity to win the game.

With the win the Bills are back in the second AFC wild-card spot, but are tied with the Baltimore Ravens and the Los Angeles Chargers with three games left in the season.

Next week they will look to win their final home game of the season, against the Miami Dolphins.

Here are our five takeaways from the Bills’ win against the Colts.
