Buffalo Bills Player Saves a Stranded Motorist in Orchard Park
The Buffalo Bills will play the Pittsburgh Steelers at Highmark Stadium tomorrow at 4:30 pm. The game was originally scheduled for Sunday at 1 pm, which was moved for obvious reasons.
There's still a Winter Storm Warning in effect for all of Erie County, as heavy lake effect snow pummels the City of Buffalo and south towns on Sunday afternoon. Visibility is zero in the heart of the snow band and wind gusts are over 50 mph.
There is still a travel ban for most of the county, as forecasters and government officials ask that people stay off of the roads unless they are emergency services, police officers, public works or healthcare workers.
Despite the area being crippled, there are still people who do not live in Western New York, who think the game should have been played at its originally scheduled time...which was logistically, impossible. It also would have put thousands of fans and emergency service workers in harms way.
The Bills have been having a hard time to get to the facility for walkthroughs and one of them helped a stranded motorist in the frigid cold and heavy snow.
Bills offensive lineman Alec Anderson helped pull a vehicle out of the snow along Southwestern Blvd. in Orchard Park. It was caught on video by fellow offensive lineman Ryan Van Demark.
The Bills are asking fans who want to help shovel the stadium out, to stay home until further notice. Once the travel ban is lifted (hopefully tonight at some point) that can commence.
The Steelers fly in today at 3 pm but we have to wait and see if they get in on time. They decided to change plans and have their walkthrough this morning. Usually, the visiting team conducts a walkthrough at the team hotel after they fly in.
Stay safe and hopefully, Highmark Stadium is nice and full for tomorrow at 4:30 pm.
If the Bills win, they will host the Kansas City Chiefs next weekend in Orchard Park. If they lose, the season is over.
