The weather earned the headlines for Sunday's game at New Era Field. The Buffalo Bills kept their playoff hopes alive with a 13-7 overtime victory over the Indianapolis Colts, but most observers are still talking about the heavy snow that fell throughout the game. A Wall Street Journal reporter called the contest "delightfully ugly." Most Bills fans would agree, analyst Matt Sabua points out, provided their team wins.

A new weather system follows the lake effect snow that impacted Sunday's Bills game where snow totals near New Era Field approached a foot-and-a-half. A winter storm watch has been issued from tonight through Wednesday afternoon.

A Lake Effect snow band shifted north during the height of the Friday morning commute in the city of Buffalo and nearby suburbs. In some spots, it caused gridlock and snarled traffic at times.  

The Buffalo Bills find themselves in a familiar spot as the 2017 season winds down. As analyst Matt Sabuda points out, the Bills remain in the hunt for a spot in the playoffs. Of course, that "hunt" has come up empty for the Bills, who haven't appeared in a postseason game in almost 18 years. The bottom line, Sabuda says, the Bills have a small chance at the playoffs if they beat the Colts Sunday; almost no shot, if they lose.
