The Indianapolis Colts are now 7-4 after defeating the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. Defensively the Colts kept the Bills grounded frustrating quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick for much of the game.
Much of the Colts offense was provided by T.Y. Hilton. Hiton ran back a punt for a 75-yard touchdown to score the games first points in the first quarter.
The Bills and Colts then traded field goals with Ryan Lindell kicking two for the Bills and Adam Vinatieri kicking two for the Colts. At halftime the Colts led 13-6.
In the middle of the third quarter the Colts began working on a drive that would go 15 plays and 87 yards. The drive, which lasted 8 minutes and 4 seconds, culminated with an 8 yard touchdown pass from Andrew Luck to Hilton.
Fitzpatrick would get hot in the fourth quarter. He would lead the Bills on a 8 play drive which ended in a 1 yard touchdown pass to Lee Smith.
The Bills hopes for a stop late in the fourth quarter ended when cornerback Sean Gilbert was called for a pass interference penalty on Reggie Wayne. Wayne leads the NFL in receptions and caught 8 passes for 102 yards against the Bills.
Final Score: Colts 20 Bills 13
The Colts were a 3.5 point favorite, thus covering the spread. The over/under for the game was 51. It was not achieved as there were a total of 33 points between the two teams.
Buffalo’s slim playoff hopes are virtually done. They have lost four of their last five and are now 4-7.

Maybe T.Y. Hilton didn't need the advice about returning punts.
He heeded it anyway and turned the game.
After a pregame chat with coach Chuck Pagano about the art of returning punts, Hilton returned Buffalo's first punt 75 yards for a touchdown, then caught an 8-yard TD pass to lead Indianapolis past the Bills 20-13.

Ed Hochuli was overturning a call in favor of the Indianapolis Colts, saying that T.Y. Hilton’s “buttocks” was down and so it wasn’t a fumble. Sure, the crowd may have been cheering the fact that a call was in their favor, but it is rather funny to listen to the timing of their cheering. You have to give Hochuli credit for keeping a straight face the whole time too.
Andrew Luck completed 20-of-37 passes for 240 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in Sunday’s Week 12 win over the Bills. Luck had a pretty decent week. He couldn’t find Donnie Avery on any deep shots, and locked in on Reggie Wayne and was content with 10-15 yard gains. There’s nothing wrong with the Week 12 output, but there wasn’t a whole lot available. Luck’s...
