Bills Player Could Barely See Driving to Highmark Stadium
The Buffalo Bills host the Miami Dolphins tonight at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, and could clinch a playoff spot tonight. The Bills clinch a playoff berth with a win and while it's statistically possible for them to not win the division with a win, if Buffalo beats Miami tonight they will essentially have the AFC East clinched.
Orchard Park has seen over one foot of snow so far since last night and while the lake effect snow band is impacting Northern Erie County at the moment, that band is expected to swing back to Orchard Park by the second half of the game.
It was pretty bad driving in Buffalo and the south towns in the morning and early afternoon. Driving conditions were poor, and one Bills player saw that firsthand.
Bills defensive tackle Ed Oliver was driving through a near whiteout and poor road conditions on his drive into the stadium today.
Sometimes it's easy to forget that the Bills players have to drive through this stuff as well; it's not just the fans who have to navigate through this weather.
Make sure to bring a small shovel and extra layers for this game if you're going. If you have not brought what you need, it never hurts to ask your fellow Buffalonians to assist you if you get stuck. For those who do not drive a vehicle with four-wheel drive or a big enough pickup truck or SUV, perhaps some help will be needed when they leave the game, when the conditions will be at its worst.
