Bills Not Likely to Be Able To Play Home Game Sunday Vs Jets


The Bills’ home game against the Jets is not expected to be played Sunday afternoon, Adam Schefter and Adam Caplan of ESPN report citing sources, as another storm brought the Buffalo area’s paralyzing three-day snowfall total Thursday to six feet or more.

The Bills “will be hard-pressed to get their stadium ready for their next home game,” a source said. That next home game is Nov. 30, against the Browns.

The question now is when and where Sunday’s game will be played. The NFL will conduct a conference call with Bills and Jets officials Thursday afternoon to figure it out.

“Public safety is the first priority. We have been in discussions regarding potential alternatives. We will provide an update later today,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Thursday.

Possible locations, according to sources, include Detroit, Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C. The Lions and Redskins are on the road this weekend; the Steelers have a bye.

It’s 215 miles from Buffalo to Pittsburgh, 256 miles from Buffalo to Detroit and 389 miles from Buffalo to FedEx Field in Washington.

Coaches for the teams are preparing with the belief the game will be moved to Monday evening in one of those three cities. The Bills have been unable to practice for the past two days and will have to leave Buffalo in order to do so.
