Colts Violated NFL Policy By Sending Non-Players To Clear Snow

Bills vs. Dolphins Time TV Schedule and how to watch online

Vinatieri did make a clutch extra-point attempt that sent the game to overtime, but the Bills ended up winning 13-7. Visibility was practically nonexistent in the game's first quarter and New Era Field was covered in snow throughout a miserable day for both teams offensively.

The Indianapolis Colts violated an National Football League policy when they sent sideline personnel onto the field to remove snow from the area where a kick would be lined up in order to help Adam Vinatieri get better footing on Sunday.

Vinatieri was 0-2 on field goal attempts in the brutal conditions.

Unfortunately, Vinatieri's misses could still end up costing him. "He would receive a $500,000 bonus for making 90 percent of his field goal attempts (with a minimum of 16 attempts) this season". But with the two misses on Sunday, Vinatieri dropped to 88% on the season. Heading into the game, Vinatieri was at 95.6%, going 22-of-23 on his kicks. That said, if Vinatieri winds up just a bit short of the threshold, the Colts ought to recall the snowstorm, recall the heroic extra point and give him his well-earned bonus anyway.

Vinatieri was 0-for-2 on his field goal tries on Sunday, though attempting kicks of any distance in that kind of weather was a fool's errand. "Trying to run through snow and get good plant - that's insane. It was a tough game". After initially looking like it would go wide right, Vinatieri 's kick swerved back through the uprights just in time.
