An intense snowstorm made it nearly impossible for the Buffalo Bills fans who made the trip to see the squad’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Seventy-one minutes into the game, that appeared to be a good thing.

Here’s what the winter wonderland formerly known as New Era Field looked like throughout the contest.

With under two minutes left, it looked like the home team blew their 7-0 lead when Colts tight end Jack Doyle caught a touchdown pass then secured a pass for a two-point conversion.

But the conversion was called back on a controversial offensive pass interference call, pushing the Colts back and forcing head coach Chuck Pagano to opt for a long extra-point attempt.

Adam Vinatieri was up to the challenge, with some help from the wind and his teammates, who dug up snow.

The offense wouldn’t pick up in overtime.

Bills head coach Sean McDermott continued to drive his team’s fans up a wall when he punted on fourth-and-1 on the Colts’ 41-yard line, with four minutes left in the extra period.

Thankfully it all ended up working out for Buffalo—the Colts punted, setting LeSean McCoy up for this game-winning, 21-yard touchdown run through the snow.
