Jets-Buffalo Bills could move to Monday or Tuesday in Detroit, per reports

Ford Field could be hosting another “non-Lions” game this year, as the Buffalo Bills are looking into other possible venues following a monumental snowstorm that has already left their city buried under over five feet of snow, with three more feet expected in certain locations. If selected, this would be the second time Ford Field has been used in such a manner after the Minnesota Vikings played a home game in Detroit following a snow-induced roof collapse at the Metrodome in 2010.

The Jets‘ game at the Bills, still technically scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday, could be not only be moved to Monday or Tuesday, but also might be switched to Detroit, Toronto or even MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, according to reports.

Snow continues to pound the Buffalo area, especially Orchard Park, where Ralph Wilson Stadium is located. The Bills are doing their best to dig out the stadium, but it is a monumental task. They were unable to practice Thursday for the second straight day.

Meanwhile, New York’s governor, Andrew Cuomo, said it would be “impractical” for the Jets and Bills to play Sunday in Orchard Park.

It is looking more and more unlikely that this game will happen as scheduled Sunday afternoon at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The NFL has yet to officially announce any plans to shift the time, date or location of this game.

The Bills played one home regular season game per year in Toronto from 2008-13, but they did not have a game scheduled there this season.

A potential complication with moving the game to Toronto would be getting passports on short notice, since they are required to enter Canada.
