With a historic snowstorm set to hit Buffalo this weekend, the Buffalo Bills’ home game against the Cleveland Browns has been moved to Ford Field in Detroit.
The Western-NewYork area is expected multiple feet of snow that over the course of two days and it would make things entirely too dangerous for the NFL to play a game in Buffalo.
The team said the decision to move the game from Highmark Stadium was done “in consultation with the Buffalo Bills and local and state authorities as the region prepares for the storm.”
With that being said, it seems like Ford Field has a lot of work to do ahead of Sunday’s game as the stadium is hosting a huge Carnival on the field and now it has to come down before Sunday:
The last time the NFL moved a regular-season game was in November 2014. The Bills were scheduled to host the Jets on a Sunday afternoon, but more than 6 feet of snow fell in the area ahead of the game, resulting in the two teams facing off in Detroit on a Monday night.
With this week’s game being relocated, Buffalo’s next home game won’t be until Dec. 11 against the Jets.
