2. LeSean McCoy puts the team on his back

With the snow piling down all day, the Bills had to rely on McCoy more than usual to move the ball effectively against the Colts.

McCoy did not disappoint, as he had his best game of the season rushing the ball a season high 32 times, for 156 yards with a touchdown.

His score would come in overtime, as he broke a 21-yard run to seal the game for the Buffalo Bills.

With his strong run, McCoy broke the 1,000 rushing yard mark for the sixth time in his career and the second time as a member of the Bills.

McCoy now sits in fifth place in the NFL with 1,007 rushing yards and has a strong chance to set a career high for rushing yards in a season. His record is 1,309 yards, which he set in 2014 with the Philadelphia Eagles.

McCoy is also on pace to find himself in some elite company in a couple of years, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Reuben Frank:

The Bills will need McCoy at his best again next week, as they face a Dolphins team that is 12th in the league in run defense.
