The 'Snow Bowl' could cost Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri a $500000 bonus

But that snow, and two missed kicks in ridiculous conditions, could cost the kicker more than just a win in a lost season. The last three games for the Bills will be interesting to say the least. However, he was 0-for-2 on field goals, missing kicks from 33 and 43 yards.

According to ESPN, Vinatieri's contract calls for him to receive a $500,000 bonus if he makes more than 90 percent of his field goals during the season, something he's done a remarkable five times during his surefire Hall-of-Fame career.

In terms of comparing his passing offense to the rest of the league so far this season, McDermott said it is not something holding back the Bills, despite Buffalo ranking second-last in the NFL in passing (168.1 yards-per-game). You see, the two-year $6 million contract he signed with the Colts prior to the 2016 season offers a performance bonus of $500,000 if his conversion rate is at or above 90%.

Adam Vinatieri proved once again on Sunday why he is the most clutch kicker in National Football League history, but he may have gotten some assistance from a few people he should not have.

Having already persevered through a major roster purge and persistent questions at quarterback, the Bills now showed they're capable of braving the arctic elements to remain firmly in a convoluted playoff picture. "I missed it by a kick".

"Trying to run through snow and get good plant, that's insane", Vinatieri said. While the Sunday's game isn't expected to have a wind chill of 13, it still could be a cold one for the Dolphins. But you get both of them.

Following that wacky game on Sunday, though, Vinatieri weighed in on what made kicking in those conditions so hard. The Bills will be in for a tough matchup as the Dolphins will be looking to carry that momentum into Sunday's game. The 5-time Pro Bowler is coming off a monster game last week, torching the Colts defense to the tune of 156 yards on 32 carries and a score.
