The Buffalo Bills‘ game against the Cleveland Browns was moved to Ford Field in Detroit due to an incoming snowstorm. As it turns out, the league definitely made the right call because the storm was as major as forecasts showed.
On Friday, the Bills took to social media to show off the current status of Highmark Stadium in Buffalo which is already feeling the impact of the snow.
The photos showed the stadium covered in feet of snow with the stands… and much more is still expected to come.

The league announced on Thursday evening that the game would be moved.
“Due to public safety concerns and out of an abundance of caution in light of the ongoing weather emergency in western New York, Sunday’s Cleveland Browns-Buffalo Bills game will be moved to Ford Field in Detroit at 1 p.m. ET, the NFL announced today,” the Bills confirmed in a statement.
“The decision to move the game from Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, NY was done in consultation with the Buffalo Bills and local and state authorities as the region prepares for the storm.”
Because of the move, the Bills will now play two consecutive games at Ford Field, with a Thanksgiving Day matchup with the Detroit Lions set for Week 12.
