With a snowstorm hammering Buffalo, the Bills were forced to cancel their final practice of the week as they prepare to face the Cleveland Browns on Sunday. The team announced Friday’s practice has been canceled due to weather, with players and coaches set to meet virtually.
The NFL announced Thursday it moved Sunday’s game between the Bills and Browns, scheduled to be played in Buffalo, to Detroit’s Ford Field due to safety concerns with potentially historic levels of snowfall.
Von Miller would soon take to social media and show why that practice could not happen. His post showed his car buried in snow.
All the weather forecasts this week said western New York would be covered in snow from Friday through Sunday. The decision to move the game would ensure thousands of people wouldn’t try to make the game in treacherous conditions, which could ultimately make someone lose their life unnecessarily.
Multiple reports say Orchard Park has already received 18 inches of snow.
“Coach Sean McDermott does a great job of messaging and making sure our guys understand it’s still going to be a football game,” Bills general manager Brandon Beane said. “Everything else is the same. It’s a short flight. We’re going to try to keep it as routine as possible. Is it a little disruption? Yes. But I think our guys are pros. They understand it.”
Stay safe out there, Buffalo.
The Bills are eighth in the NFL with 27 sacks, including a team-high 8.0 by Von Miller, which is tied for sixth in the NFL. He has also racked up 7.0 TFL and 18 tackles.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
