Adam Vinatieri may lose $500000 because of Colts' snow game in Buffalo

Bills: McDermott updates his QB, injury situation, calls Jay Cutler “elite” (video)

McDermott said on Wednesday that Taylor was close to playing last Sunday against the Colts, a game Buffalo won 13-7 in overtime. They have not won three straight games against the Bills since October 26, 2008-Oct.

The Buffalo Bills avoided being mathematically eliminated from the postseason this past Sunday by surviving Mother Nature's snowy fury, the loss of starting back-up quarterback Nathan Peterman to a concussion, and a late touchdown by Indianapolis that sent the contest to overtime to somehow eke out a 13-7 victory. However, he was 0-for-2 on field goals, missing kicks from 33 and 43 yards.

Unfortunately, Vinatieri's misses could still end up costing him.

According to ESPN's Mike Wells, Vinatieri will receive an additional $500,000 if he makes at least 90% of his field-goal attempts this season. As a 22-year veteran of the National Football League, the $500K likely isn't going to affect Vinatieri's family or bank account too much, but it would be incredible to see a 44-year-old (soon to be 45) kicker reach the 90-percent plateau for the sixth time in his storied career.

Vinatieri would need to be flawless for the Colts on at least five more attempts the season in order to bring his percentage back into bonus territory. The last time they met dates back to Week 16 of last season, when the Dolphins defeated the Bills in overtime by a final score of 34-31 in Orchard Park.

"Trying to run through snow and get good plant, that's insane", Vinatieri said.

After the game, Vinatieri wasn't too hard on himself for the misses, speaking to the difficulty of kicking in such wintry conditions.

Following that wacky game on Sunday, though, Vinatieri weighed in on what made kicking in those conditions so hard. But you get both of them. If it was just snow and no wind, it's one thing. The Bills will be in for a tough matchup as the Dolphins will be looking to carry that momentum into Sunday's game.
