Bills Players Say Thank You to Buffalo For Help in Snowstorm
The Buffalo Bills (6-3) are getting set to take on the Cleveland Browns (3-6) from Ford Field in Detroit. Kickoff is 1 pm today.
This game was originally supposed to take place in Orchard Park, but as we all know by now, the historic lake effect snowstorm caused the game to be moved. The Western New York community needed the resources for snow removal and having all that equipment for snow removal at Highmark Stadium was not ideal.
Not to mention the road conditions, which are still not good in Orchard Park, Hamburg and Lackawanna.
The Bills left for Detroit around 4:45 pm on Saturday and it was a very chaotic day for the team, trying to get all the players, along with staff and coaches, to the facilities at One Bills Drive and on the charter busses for the airport.
Many Bills players were helped out by Buffalonians. Neighbors helped Bills players living in Orchard Park and Hamburg, dig out of their homes and get to One Bills Drive.
The Bills released a video, showing just how hard it was for football administration & operations coordinator Ryan Moore, along with his staff, getting the players to the facility.
Bills players walking into the Adpro Training Center thanked Buffalo for digging them out and getting them there in time.
Spencer Brown, Ike Boettger, Dawson Knox, Tommy Sweeney, Micah Hyde, Taron Johnson, Jordan Poyer and others thanked their Buffalo neighbors for helping them out.
It was so fun watching the players appreciate Buffalo fans. It's been a rough past four days but the Bills will hopefully give fans an afternoon of escapism.
I love Devin Singletary walking down Southwestern Blvd. to the facility before getting picked up.
