NFL: Bills snow-blow Colts to win finale, 30-7


By JOHN WAWROW

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. As Terrell Owens did jumping jacks to keep warm, and Peyton Manning spent most of the afternoon on a heated bench, the Buffalo Bills came up with a win in a snow-filled season finale.

Despite near whiteout conditions in the first half, Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three touchdown passes including a 41-yarder to Owens in leading the Bills to a 30-7 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Fred Jackson had 212 yards rushing, the seventh-highest rushing total in team history, to reach 1,000 yards for the first time in his career, and also scored on an 11-yard catch.
And give Mother Nature credit for providing a snow-globe effect to create a picturesque backdrop to what was a meaningless game for both teams.
