There’s “football weather,” and then there’s what’s unfolding in Buffalo as we speak.
It seems like every year we get at least one game at Orchard Park that’s whited out by the lake effect snow, and this season that game is taking place in week 15.
With the Miami Dolphins set to visit Highmark Stadium for an AFC East tilt with the Bills, all that everyone seems to be talking about is the crazy snowstorm that’s sweeping the city of Buffalo all weekend long.
With forecasts calling for plenty of snow and gusting winds throughout the evening, tonight’s game will be fun to watch, but probably not very fun to play in. Fantasy football managers will face the tough decision of wether or not to start star players like Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, Tua Tagovailoa and Tyreek Hill in the brutal conditions. There’s no telling what things will look like when the teams kick off at 8:15pm ET, but if it looks anything like this morning, you may want to start looking elsewhere for your starting lineups.
Here’s a look at some of the photos and videos that have emerged from Buffalo this morning:
The Bills should be the much more comfortable team in these conditions, as Miami is used to playing all of their home games in that beautiful, warm Florida weather. The weather in Buffalo tonight will be a far cry from the sunny skies of South Beach. It’ll be interesting to see how both teams hold up, as you can bet that their respective run games will factor into the equation heavily.
Bills With A Chance To Clinch In The Snow
The Bills enter this game with a 10-3 record. A win would not only clinch a playoff berth for Sean McDermott’s club, but it would also give them a stranglehold over the AFC East with just a few weeks remaining.
Buffalo currently sits two games up on the 8-5 Dolphins, but they lost their previous matchup this year. Should Miami pull off the upset, it would bring them to within just one game of Buffalo while also giving them the tiebreaker thanks to a season sweep of their division rivals.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS?
