DETROIT, November 17, 2022 ~ A blizzard barreling down on Buffalo has prompted the NFL to move Sunday’s Cleveland Browns / Buffalo Bills game from Highmark Stadium to Detroit’s Ford Field.
The storm, which meteorologists say will come with high winds and thundersnow, is expected to drop three to six feet of snow in and around the team’s upstate New York home by game time this Sunday.
November 17, 2022 ~ 760 WJR Senior Sports Analyst Steve Courtney talks with Guy Gordon about the NFL moving the Bills / Browns game to Ford Field, and Justin Verlander taking home his third Cy Young Award.
(CONTINUED) The move comes after civic, venue, and team leaders determined that moving forward with the game as planned wasn’t in the interest of public safety.
The Bills will now play their next two games in Detroit, as they were the previously scheduled Thanksgiving Day opponent for the Detroit Lions.
Though all this may sound unusual, it has happened before. In 2014, The Bills’ Monday Night Football game against the New York Jets got moved to Detroit due to a similar lake-effect snowstorm.
Ticketing information for Sunday’s game is not yet available. Stay with 760 WJR for up-to-the-minute details on how Detroit NFL fans can attend Sunday’s game.
