Bills moving to Detroit?

Recommended Posts

Well... for a week maybe:

While Detroit Lions are on the road, Buffalo Bills could be playing at Ford Field | MLive.com

The NFL is considering moving the Jets @ Bills game to due to the 5 feet of snow already on the ground in western NY and more on the way.

Detroit is one of three locations being considered (Pitts, and Washington DC being the others). The article also says that if this happens it'll likely be moved to Monday night.

So if you're on the side of the state and looking for something to do Monday night... here's a possible option.

Anyone recall when the Vikings did this a few years back, did they charge for admission?

Weird how Detroit keeps being the emergency backup NFL site.

They should've just found a field, maybe a high school football field and played. That would've been cool.

IIRC when we did this in 2010 it was during a big ice and snowstorm.

Yes, it was. That Saturday was the MSU-UM hockey game at Michigan Stadium & it was something like 50 degrees that day. Then it got really windy & rained all night & the temps dropped to well below freezing. Everything froze over & the area got hit with around 6-8 inches of snow on Sunday. The roads were iced over for like two days afterward. I was going to go to the game on Monday night, but just went home after work due to the road conditions.

By the way, tickets for this Monday's game are free as well.

Tickets available for Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets at Ford Field

I stopped going to Lions games in person because of the drunks and fighting in the stands, and that was paying customers. For anyone planning to attend Monday night's game, my advice would be to invest in a suit of armor.
