NFL match goes ahead during blizzard

Their match - at New Era Field in New York - took place in a blizzard, which caused players to skid and slide throughout.On the eve of the match, the Bills had asked fans to come to the stadium to help shovel snow, but the weather worsened during Sunday's game.

The Bills supporters who did brave the conditions went home happy - their team won 13-7 in Joel Edmundson Youth jersey overtime.Lovren and captain Jordan Henderson angrily remonstrated with the referee at the final whistle after he awarded the visitors their first penalty at Anfield since 1988.

Liverpool clearly felt it was a soft decision, yet the hosts must also look at themselves for their inability to secure victory after failing to turn their long spells of possession into more than one goal.
They remain unbeaten in 10 games in all competitions but this will feel like a defeat for Klopp, whose team selection will also come under scrutiny.The German opted to start Philippe Coutinho, who scored a Champions League hat-trick in midweek against Spartak Moscow, and fellow Brazilian Roberto Firmino on the bench.
Instead Klopp handed 20-year-old striker Dominic Solanke his second league start for the club, while there was an all-English midfield of Henderson, James Milner and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain."I make decisions that I think are right," added Klopp. "We lived more or less in their box. We could have scored earlier. I have to live with that."
Klopp made six changes in total yet Liverpool's play was still fluent, even if they were frustrated by the visitors before a brilliant piece of individual skill by Authentic Jae Crowder Jersey Salah put them ahead.The Egypt forward took his tally for the club since signing in the summer to 19 goals with an exquisite finish after beating Cuco Martina and holding off Idrissa Gueye.
However, Mane's selfish decision not to pass to a team-mate cost Liverpool the cushion of a second goal before the interval.He ran clear of the Everton defence but instead of squaring to Solanke, Oxlade-Chamberlain or Salah he went for goal and dragged his shot wide of the right-hand post.
Liverpool's failure to add another goal ultimately cost them a fourth successive win, as Everton secured a point from a game they never had control of.As Klopp sought to engineer a late winner for his side he sent on Danny Ings for the injury-plagued striker's first Premier League appearance since May 2016.
Everton remain without a win at Anfield since 1999 yet this was a result to enjoy for the blue half of Merseyside.The Toffees managed just two shots on target and spent most of the first half camped inside their Authentic Philip Rivers Jersey own half as Liverpool dominated possession and territory.
In fact, Everton had 21% of the possession, their lowest figure ever in a Premier League match since 2003-04 (when Opta started recording the share).Liverpool midfielder Henderson completed 60 passes - six more than Everton's players put together - in the opening 45 Patrick Roy Jersey minutes alone.
Yet Allardyce's side dug deep to stay in the game, and when the chance arose to beat keeper Simon Mignolet, the goal was meaningful.Rooney's first goal in six appearances in this fixture extends his side's unbeaten run to four games in all competitions.
