The Cleveland Browns will travel to meet the Buffalo Bills for a Week 11 matchup at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York. A “potentially historic” snow event could lead to the Buffalo Bills and Cleveland Browns playing in feet of snow Sunday or it just might lead to the game being canceled or moved.
According to meteorologist Jim Cantore, the latest forecast is calling for 2 1/2-3 feet of snow to fall from 7 p.m. ET tonight through 7 a.m. ET Saturday morning.
According to AccuWeather, “forecasters warn that travel could be difficult to nearly impossible amid the heaviest snow bands, including along sections of Interstate 90 in the Buffalo, New York, area and I-81 north of Syracuse.”
With so much snow coming down in the area, there is actually talk of the game being canceled or possibly played somewhere else.
Meteorologist Kevin O’Neil suggests moving the game to Monday could be a possibility, but also points out that the Bills are playing on Thursday.
The last time that the National Football League moved a Buffalo game to Detroit was when the New York Jets were coming to visit Highmark Stadium in 2014.
Feet of snow would prompt both teams to run the ball more often and go for it more on fourth downs since kicking the ball would be less than ideal. The Bills are a pass-happy team with MVP candidate quarterback Josh Allen, but that might take a major backseat on Sunday.
The Browns were blown out by Miami last week 39-17, while the Bills were on the short end of a wild 33-30 overtime loss against the Minnesota Vikings.
Both teams need this win badly.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
