INDIANAPOLIS — Last season, a kick that went wide right in Week 17 cost Colts kicker Adam Vinatieri $500,000. This year, the snow might have kept Vinatieri from collecting an additional $500,000. Vinatieri’s field goal percentage dropped to 88 percent (22 of 25) after he went 0-for-2 on field goal attempts during blizzardy conditions at New Era Field in Orchard Park, New York, against the Bills on Sunday. He will receive a $500,000 bonus for making 90 percent of his field-goal attempts (with a minimum of 16 attempts) this season….

PITTSBURGH — The Baltimore Ravens ended the 39-38 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers with some of their offensive players holding their arms in the air. It was a strange ending as the final eight seconds ticked off the clock while the Ravens stood in a huddle. Baltimore needed 18 more yards to get in range for a 60-yard field goal attempt for Justin Tucker, who was hitting from that distance in pregame warm-ups.
