It wasn’t working.

The Bills were hosting the Indianapolis Colts at New Era Field, and players, coaches and fans were exposed to a strong snowstorm.

During warm-ups Sunday, White did his best to avoid becoming frozen. He danced and moved to stay warm. As a native of Shreveport, Louisiana, it is unlikely that White has ever seen conditions like this: temperatures below 30 degrees when the game began at 1 p.m., winds out of the west at 18 mph, a wind chill that made the temperature feel like 16 degrees, and visibility of less than a third of a mile.

The players weren’t the only ones cold. Fans braved the chilly weather to cheer for the Bills.

And you can’t say the fans in Buffalo don’t have a sense of humor.
