Bills-Browns moved to Detroit due to projected snow

The Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns will not be meeting up in Orchard Park in Week 11.

According to The Athletic, the game has been moved to the home of the Detroit Lions, Ford Field. A day has not been provided, but it likely will still kickoff on Sunday:

In recent days, a winter storm warning was put into effect in western New York. Accuweather had previously called the oncoming storm “potentially historic.”

The storm is set to “full throttle” starting Thursday and continue to the weekend. Snow could fall at a rate of two-to-four inches an hour, at times.

However, the game was not immediately cancelled because the length of the storm was in question. It might stop before Sunday at 1 p.m. which means the game could be played in Orchard Park.

Evidently, the NFL has opted not to risk that. Considering travel is the much more difficult factor for both the fans and teams, it’s probably the smarter call and certainly is the safer one.
