New York Gov. Cuomo: 'Impractical' for Bills to play Jets Sunday
BUFFALO, N.Y. -- New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says it would be "impractical" at this time for the Buffalo Bills to host the New York Jets on Sunday because of a lake-effect snowstorm that continues to hit the region.
Cuomo spoke Thursday after spending the past day touring communities south of Buffalo, including the Bills home in Orchard Park. The storm has dumped more than 5 feet of snow since Monday, with another 1 to 2 feet projected to fall by Friday.
The Bills canceled practice for a second straight day Thursday.
On Wednesday, the Bills weren't sure whether there was enough time to clear the stadium and grounds of the estimated 220,000 tons of snow by Sunday.
The NFL has not yet determined whether the game will be postponed or potentially relocated.
