DEVELOPING: Bills-Jets May Move From Buffalo (UPDATED: Yep, It's Moving)


With all the snow that is covering western New York and Governor Andrew Cuomo asking everyone to stay inside "pretty, please" the thought of a football game on Sunday afternoon at Ralph Wilson Stadium is a longshot at best.

So, with a little leeway to think about it, the NFL is debating moving the game to either Detroit, Pittsburgh, or Washington to get it in the books this weekend.

Adam Benigni discusses...
The thought is Monday night for a kickoff, but the Bills have to be able to get out of town. The team hasn't practiced in two days and would need to get transportation out of town to whatever locale will host if it is not Orchard Park. Interesting math frm the Bills front office: Bills officials said Wednesday that it takes about three days to remove one foot of snow from the stadium and surrounding areas. At the rate the snow is falling, that cleanup would take 18 days. So, don't go holding your breath on a Bills home game. PM UPDATE: Yep, it's moving... According to Adams Caplan and Schefter at ESPN, it's not happening Sunday and they may not get their November 30 game played in Buffalo, either, because of the amount of snow inside Ralph Wilson Stadium.

And the final idea is that the game will be in Detroit on Monday night...

Provided, of course, the Bills can actually get there...
