    Jets-Bills Game Likely to be Moved

    The Bills' home game against the Jets is not expected to be played Sunday afternoon, sources tell ESPN, as another storm Thursday brought the Buffalo area's paralyzing three-day snowfall total to six feet or more.

    The question now is when and where Sunday's game will be played. The NFL will conduct a conference call with Bills and Jets officials Thursday afternoon to figure it out.

    "Public safety is the first priority," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said Thursday. "We have been in discussions regarding potential alternatives. We will provide an update later today."

    Possible locations, according to sources, include Detroit, Pittsburgh and Washington, D.C. The Lions and Redskins are on the road this weekend; the Steelers have a bye. It's 215 miles from Buffalo to Pittsburgh, 256 miles from Buffalo to Detroit and 389 miles from Buffalo to FedEx Field in Washington.

    Coaches for the teams are preparing with the belief the game will be moved to Monday evening in one of those three cities. The Bills have been unable to practice for the past two days and will have to leave Buffalo to do so.

    The NFL has until Friday to make a decision about the game. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Thursday that playing the game in Buffalo would be "impractical."

    There is an estimated four feet of snow in Orchard Park at the stadium, and another two feet of snow is forecast.

    Bills officials said Wednesday that it takes about three days to remove one foot of snow from the stadium and surrounding areas. At the rate the snow is falling, that cleanup would take 18 days.

    According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the only teams in the Super Bowl era (since 1966) to play consecutive games on Mondays are the 2010 Vikings in Weeks 14 and 15 and the 1996 Raiders in Weeks 8 and 10 (they a bye in Week 9). If Sunday's Jets-Bills game is rescheduled to Monday, the Jets would become the third team to play consecutive Mondays, although Elias will recognize only the scheduled Ravens-Saints game as the "official" Monday night game.

    I read that there wouldn't be enough time to make sure everyone had their passports.

    Katrina hits, Saints play their home game against the Giants at the Meadowlands.

    Blizzard hits for the Bills-Jets game, no way would they ever consider playing at the Meadowlands.

    GREAT quote from PFT's comments:

    "sfsaintsfan says: Nov 20, 2014 4:06 PM
    njsaintfan says:

    I remember when the Saints had the home game at Giants Stadium against the Giants after Katrina. It wasn’t much of a home game, either play at a neutral site or postpone the game.
    *************************
    The story is far worse than that. The Giants fans were given first dibs on tickets for that game. Any Saints fans who happened to be out of New Orleans at the time were behind Giants fans for tickets, and this was for a Saints “home” game.
    All I can say about this game, if it was the NJ Giants and not the NJ Jets, the game would be played in NJ, because most NFL front office types are Giants fans and/or season ticket holders."

    Understood. And the Giants are home on Sunday. Valid points.

    But they shouldn't have given the Giants a ninth home game, especially with giving Giants fans first crack at buying tickets. They used the hurricane as an excuse for helping the Giants. No such treatment for the Jets.

    So what station is going to carry the game? I have NFL Sunday Ticket so I can get the Jet games. I would think either CBS or NFL Network would carry it. I would hope so...

    Several questions ? I have NFL Direct TV Sunday Ticket, it better be on, or I'll be pissed ! Is this not a TV conflict with MNF on ESPN ?

    Hey Buffalo, with your new stadium, how about a dome with a retractable roof ?

    Go Jets...Cyborg

    TV info on Jets-Bills game




    By Rich Cimini | ESPNNewYork.com
    Yes, you'll be able to watch Monday night's New York Jets-Buffalo Bills game from Detroit's Ford Field. Here's how: 

    For those in the New York market, the game will be shown on WCBS. It also will be aired on CBS in the following upstate markets -- Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester, Albany, Elmira, Binghamton, Watertown and Erie. 

    Now, here's the answer to the oft-asked question from readers and Twitter followers: 

    If you're not in one of the aforementioned markets, subscribers can watch the game on NFL Sunday Ticket on DirecTV, according to the league. 

    Kickoff is 7 p.m. Spero Dedes and Solomon Wilcots of CBS Sports will call the action. 

    The game, originally scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, New York, was changed due to severe weather.
