Bills-Jets game moved to Detroit on Monday night

The Buffalo Bills' home game against the New York Jets has been shifted to Monday night at Ford Field in Detroit due to wintry weather in upstate New York.

The game will be played at 7 p.m.

"As mentioned earlier today, public safety resources in western New York must be fully available to deal with the recovery from the storm," the NFl said in a statement. "We continue our discussions with the team and the Red Cross on ways the NFL can support the community through this weather disaster. We greatly appreciate the hospitality of the Detroit Lions in hosting the Bills and this game, which will be televised by CBS in the New York and Buffalo area markets. While Ford Field could have hosted the game on Sunday, in order to give the Bills as much practice time as possible under the circumstances, the decision to play on Monday night was made.

"The Lions’ practice facility will be available to the Bills on Friday and moving the game to Monday night will enable the Bills to practice on Friday and Saturday and have their walk-through on Sunday. The Bills have been unable to practice this week in Buffalo."

The Lions issued a statement.

"We are pleased to be hosting the Bills and Jets for their game Monday night," Lions president Tom Lewand said in a statement. "While our thoughts are with the people of the Buffalo area during this difficult time, our team at Ford Field will do everything we can to be good hosts to their team this weekend."
