-NFL Moves Bills Game From Snowy Buffalo To Not-Quite-As-Snowy Detroit

November 21, 2014

The massive snowfall in Buffalo is forcing the National Football League to move its game between the home-town Bills and the New York Jets to Detroit. It’s a role Detroit has played before… In 2010 the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field hosted a Vikings game after the roof of Minnesota’s Metrodome collapsed under heavy snow. This time it’s the heavy snow in Buffalo that’s again causing the NFL to shift a game to Detroit. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo says it would not be practical for fans to drive to a Buffalo home game on roads that are either cut off or hazardous. Travel restrictions have kept Bills players from even practicing, and the game in Detroit is being rescheduled from Sunday to Monday to give the team extra time to prepare.
