The Buffalo Bills will host the Indianapolis Colts on Super Wild Card Weekend.
He may have been completely unknown to Buffalo Bills fans before last Sunday, but Tennessee Titans rookie kicker Sam Sloman saved Bills Mafia a lot of pain.
Had Sloman’s kick caught a little more of NRG Stadium’s left upright, we could be talking about a Bills-Titans Wild Card matchup, one that would send television network employees scurrying to their desks to drag up as many different angles of the Music City Miracle as possible in preparation for next weekend.
Instead, Sloman’s kick doinked in, the Titans won the AFC South, and the Bills will renew hostilities with the Indianapolis Colts.
The last time the Colts visited Buffalo, they were greeted with some of the most outrageous conditions football has ever been played in.
Dubbed the Snow Bowl by the powers that be at Wikipedia, the game was played in legitimate whiteout conditions, as snow fell at a rate of two inches per hour.
Unfortunately, this game (nor the Bills 2018 matchup against Indy) provide solid barometers for what Buffalo will face next weekend. The Colts are a different team. Fortunately, so are the Bills.
