Bills game against Browns looks like it could be moved as well
The Buffalo Bills could be playing in a different stadium two weeks in a row. According to Jason LaCanfora the Bills might be forced to play their week 13 match against the Browns to another location.
The Bills’ home game against the Browns in Week 13 could change locales depending on the state of emergency in Western New York and the feasibility of having a safe and secure traveling and game-day experience for fans at Ralph Wilson Stadium by next Sunday. In addition to that, the Bills and league officials are discussing contingencies for moving practices and housing players elsewhere this week as well, as the authorities ensure that the Bills’ practice facility has not been damaged or compromised in any way by the storm.
Bills owner Terry Pegula would like to play the game at Penn State since the team is away for Thanksgiving, but that might not be possible either.
They were unable to practice in Western New York at all last week. With colleges on Thanksgiving break, its possible a setting like that could host the team for housing, meals and training facilities. New Bills owner Terry Pegula is a huge Penn State booster, and, sources said, when he and the NFL were discussing where to play their Week 12 game, Pegula was enthusiastic about moving it to Happy Valley, but the lack of NFL game day infrastructure (replay booths, sidelines wired for tablets and headsets, etc.) made those non-starters given the available NFL stadiums. There are obviously several colleges closer to Buffalo as well that have quality facilities (like Syracuse).
It will be interesting to see what happens, but it is not looking good for Bills season ticket holders this year. The Bills better win at least…
