NFL moves Browns-Bills to Detroit due to storm

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills' home game against the Cleveland Browns is being relocated to Detroit due to a winter storm expected to hit Western New York over the next couple of days.

The area is expected to get multiple feet of the snow over the course of Thursday night through Saturday night with thunder and other conditions also expected. The team said that the decision to move the game from Highmark Stadium was done "in consultation with the Buffalo Bills and local and state authorities as the region prepares for the storm."

It is not expected to be snowing during the actual time the game is scheduled to take place. Wind gusts are also expected to make traveling more difficult.

"They've been through it before, we've been through it before and handled it well," Bills coach Sean McDermott said on Wednesday regarding the unknowns surrounding this week. "So full confidence in our team that's working behind the scenes on that and then the football team has to get ready to play a game and execute, so it's a good football team coming in here." The decision was made in part to have resources available for other needs in the community and for the safety of people in the area and fans. The team had a major snow game in Orchard Park in 2017 when the Bills beat the Colts in overtime 13-7.

The Bills had a home game vs. the New York Jets moved to Ford Field in November 2014 due to a snowstorm. The Bills won that game 38-3. That game was pushed back to Monday after being scheduled for a Sunday, but the Bills' Thanksgiving game in Detroit makes the schedule this year less flexible.

The Bills practiced inside the team's fieldhouse Wednesday but were outside for Thursday's practice. At the same time, the Bills are dealing with several illnesses on the team. Three players -- defensive back Cam Lewis, wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips -- missed Thursday's practice with illness.

Due to the loss of a home game, the Bills will not play in Orchard Park again until Dec. 11 vs. the Jets.
