Due to heavy snow in Buffalo, the Bills will host the Cleveland Browns at Ford Field in Detroit on Sunday.
This week, there were weather forecasts that predicted that Buffalo would be hit by a huge lake-effect snow event, bringing anywhere between three and six feet of snow to the area. As of Wednesday, Nov. 16. the game was still planned to go on as scheduled at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y. There is now an update on the status of the game.
On Thursday, the Bills released a statement announcing that their game against the Cleveland Browns would be moved from Highmark Stadium to Ford Field in Detroit, Mich., home of the Lions.
The game is still scheduled to take place at 1:00 p.m. ET, and will air on CBS.
Bills vs. Browns game moved to Detroit due to heavy snow in Buffalo
The Lions won’t be using Ford Field on Sunday, as they will be on the road to take on the New York Giants in East Rutherford, N.J. Hence why the move was made to move the Bills vs. Browns game to the venue. That, and it has a roof.
This will also be the first of two games that the Bills will play in Detroit. After the game on Sunday, they play the Lions at Ford Field on Thanksgiving.
Speaking of the Lions, their official Twitter account lay down the ground rules for the Bills, where they told them where the important phone numbers were, and urged them to not “break the tables.”
According to the Accuweather forecast, Orchard Park is projected to get a total of three-to-four feet of snow.
The Bills are looking to bring an end to their two-game losing streak by defeating the Browns. Meanwhile, Cleveland seeks their fourth win of the season.
