ORCHARD PARK Jim Kelly Jersey , N.Y. (AP)The snow sure suits Shady. LeSean McCoy scored on a 21-yard run with 1:33 left in overtime to secure the Buffalo Bills’ 13-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday in a wintry, white-out setting best suited for snow shoes and sled dogs. Mush!Article continues below ... He finished with 156 yards rushing, a career-best in his two-plus seasons in Buffalo. And it came nearly four years to the day the former Philadelphia running back set the Eagles franchise record with 217 yards rushing, also in a snowstorm. ”Is that right?” McCoy said when reminded of his feat. ”This is probably the best snow game I have ever played in,” he said. ”Now, I’m no expert at it. I just run how I feel. And that’s what I did today.” McCoy’s touchdown led to the Bills’ sideline erupting in celebration. Some players ran on the field to make snow angels . Others playfully engaged in snowball fights. And then there was McCoy, who was mobbed by numerous teammates in the corner of the stands, where fans tossed up handfuls of snow as if it was confetti. McCoy’s touchdown capped Buffalo’s second possession of overtime, and after receiver Deonte Thompson reached to his right to make a 35-yard catch while being interfered with by Kenny Moore. Three plays later Womens Thurman Thomas Jersey , facing third-and-2, McCoy burst through the middle, made a cut to his left and ran untouched into the end zone. ”Buffalo weather, right?” Bills coach Sean McDermott said. ”I’ve been part of some wind and some rain games. I think we had all but sun today.” There was even a dose of ”thunder snow,” a meteorological event that occasionally accompanies lake-effect enhanced snowstorm. Thunder rumbled and lightning flashed early in the third quarter, but the game was not stopped. As much as two feet of snow was in the forecast when the storm hit about 90 minutes before kickoff. Within an hour, the flakes fell so fast that fans sitting in New Era Field’s east-end stands were unable to make out the large video scoreboard directly across from them. Punted balls stuck in the snow. Colts receiver Chester Rogers disappeared into a snowbank in the end zone after being unable to stop on a deep pass from Jacoby Brissett. Rogers made the catch, but couldn’t keep both feet inbounds. A parade of stadium workers regularly made their way on the field with snow blowers on their backs to uncover the yard lines. So much snow accumulated on the roof of the first-level suites that fans began building snowmen. Mother Nature played havoc with any semblance of a game plan, leaving both teams to lean heavily on their running attacks. McCoy upped his season total to 1 http://www.thebillslockerroom.com/authentic-bruce-smith-jersey ,007 in reaching the 1,000-yard mark for the sixth time of his 13-year career. The Colts were led by Frank Gore, who finished with 130 yards rushing on a career-high 36 carries. Buffalo (7-6) stayed alive in the AFC playoff picture, while the Colts (3-10) were mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. ”Tough one to say the least. I’m so disappointed and sick for these guys,” Colts coach Chuck Pagano said. After squandering double-digit leads in the second half four times already this season, the Colts found a different way to blow an outcome. First, there was an offensive pass interference penalty against Colts receiver Kamar Aiken to negate what would’ve been a two-point conversion with 1:16 left. It happened after Brissett capped a 19-play, 77-yard march with a 3-yard touchdown to Jack Doyle. That led to the Colts scrambling to settle for a 43-yard extra point into the wind. Indianapolis used its final timeout for players to clear a spot for Adam Vinatieri. The NFL’s oldest player hit a 43-yard wobbler that hooked in from the right and just sneaked over the crossbar. Vinatieri, however Color Rush Darryl Johnson Jersey , missed a field-goal wide left from the exact same spot with 1 second remaining after the Colts regained possession when Matthias Farley intercepted Webb’s pass over the middle with 52 seconds left. Pagano blamed himself for the missed field goal. ”End of the game, that’s on me. We should’ve won that thing,” Pagano said. ”They deserve better.” QUARTERBACKS Colts: Brissett went 11 of 22 for 69 yards and had three carries for 10 yards. Bills: Rookie Nathan Peterman went 5 of 10 for 57 yards before being sidelined by a head injury late in the third quarter. Peterman started in place of Tyrod Taylor, who was sidelined by a bruised left knee in a 23-3 loss to New England last weekend. Webb finished 2 of 6 for 35 yards and an interception. ON THE RUN Gore finished with a career-high 36 carries for 130 yards. It was his first 100-yard game in 15 outings, since gaining 101 yards in a 34-6 win at Miami on Dec. 12. It was also Gore’s 42nd career 100-yard game, tying him with O.J. Simpson for 16th on the NFL list. The 97 combined rushing attempts were the most in an NFL game since the Chiefs and Bears combined for 100 attempts in Week 10 of the 1981 season. UP NEXT Colts: Host Denver Broncos on Thursday night. Bills: Close out home schedule hosting Miami Dolphins on Dec. 17. — What’s good for the goose defensive backs might be good for the gander offensive linemen.

As we detailed here, the idea is credited to defensive backs coach John Butler who hopes to cut down on defensive pass interference and holding calls by making his players less “grabby.” The relatively high frequency of these penalties and their high degree of harm make this a good goal. But what if there was a worse penalty issue out there?<hr class="p-entry-hr" id="PXDKew">Team penalty tendencyIf you follow me, you’ve seen this chart before. It’s the one that was used to show that defensive holding and pass interference penalties are a good start to prioritizing less yellow laundry. It’s included again here to compare to the next chart. This is the same idea but for offensive holding. This is a list of every offensive lineman that incurred one or more of this penalty type in the same two-year range as the defensive ones. The bottom shows the cumulative totals for everyone and the percentage of the team’s total. Note that this is only one penalty type Youth Darryl Johnson Jersey , and for one position group. Tight ends, wide receivers, and special teamers hit with this flag are not included but would drive these totals up. Despite the narrow focus, offensive lineman holding penalties occur nearly twice as often as the defensive penalties in the top chart. Yards affected is naturally higher as a result of how penalties are assessed. As defensive pass interference is spot of the foul, it skews heavily toward penalty yards rather than affected yards. On its own though, linemen negated more than twice the entire length of the field as a result of holding penalties. Making it even worse is that penalty yards are ALSO way higher for offensive holding when compared to defensive holding and pass interference. The two defensive penalties impacted 236 yards over the two-year span. All by itself, offensive holding impacted 500 yards. It only gets worse. Despite both defensive holding and defensive pass interference always resulting in a first down, those two penalty types still resulted in less downs impacted than just offensive holding. And when it comes to the super cool and useful Harm Rating, offensive holding nearly doubles the sum of defensive holding and pass interference. Let’s look for a glimmer of hope. Penalty tendency by playerNote: This article was written before the injury to LaAdrian Waddle.For the Buffalo Bills of the last couple years Womens Darryl Johnson Jersey , a good chunk of the chart is the same as the one above. The key difference are the two rightmost columns. The snap counts are introduced so we can determine a penalty frequency by player. To reiterate, plays per flag is the average number of snaps that go by between penalties. The 2017-2018 average is the mean frequency of all of the mainstay players listed above. At 283 on average it shakes out between one and one-and-a-half flags per game. Below that we have many of the new additions that could find themselves on the field this year. Their average is 368 plays between penalties which is significantly better. <hr class="p-entry-hr" id="jCmuNh">SummaryOffensive holding is a major issue across the league and certainly for the Buffalo Bills. There is some hope that new players will decrease the penalty count in this area, but that’s far from a guarantee. Even with some improvement this is an area that could stand to be improved upon. Would oven mitts actually help? If you missed it or forgot about it, take a look at this primer on what constitutes offensive holding. Preventing linemen from grabbing could help them with hand fighting technique and learning leverage as they’d need to be extra cautious. Oven mitts could increase skill level. However, since grabbing is not the same as holding and is a staple of the offensive lineman’s skill set oven mitts probably shouldn’t be something that’s used a whole heck of a lot. Ultimately though, it’s well worth some practice time to be creative in helping limit these flags.
