Could the NFL move Bills-Browns for Buffalo snowstorm? If so, here’s a smart plan

While it would be awesome to see the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns play a game in a ton of snow — imagine SIX FEET of the white stuff on the ground! — it may not be possible logistically or safely.

Which is why, on Thursday, with the looming Buffalo lake-effect snowstorm, there’s talk from reporters about possibly moving Sunday’s Week 11 matchup.

The game probably can’t be moved date-wise since the Bills are set to play the Lions on Thanksgiving.

But where could both teams play that could make sense? As we saw from a pair of ESPN reporters … how about Detroit? Not a long distance from Cleveland, and the Bills could stay in town to play the Lions after!

The last time this happened in 2014 the #Bills went to Detroit and crushed the Jets. I remember seeing Rex Ryan walk on the field as the Jets coach and thought “this guy isn’t making it to next season”. He did. As the Bills head coach. https://t.co/aYKgEKXj3W

Forecasts calling for snow totals of 3-to-6 feet by Sunday in Buffalo, including possible “thundersnow.” Last time snow forced NFL to move a game out of Buffalo was 2014, when Jets and Bills played that Monday night in Detroit. NFL monitoring storm, talking to Bills and Browns.

If Browns-Bills gets moved, it’s not clear where it would be played, but Detroit makes a lot of sense. Close to both Buffalo and Cleveland, no game there this weekend, and Bills play there next Thursday as well and could stay the week if needed.

Smart.
