Bills Mafia can’t have anything nice.
Per @KDKARadio host Marty Griffin: Sources tell him Steelers-Bill could get moved to Cleveland if lake effect weather and state of emergency is declared in Western New York on Sunday. He says that Browns stadium officials have been told to “be ready”

Source: Sunday’s NFL wildcard game between the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers could be moved to Cleveland if lake effect weather prompts a state of emergency to be declared in Western New York.
On Thursday afternoon, the National Weather Service issued a winter storm watch for much of Western New York, including Orchard Park where the Bills play their home games.
It is in effect from Saturday afternoon until Monday morning and states over seven inches of snow are possible over the weekend, with winds possibly reaching 60mph.
And Pittsburgh’s KDKA Radio are now reporting that Browns stadiums officials have already been informed that a switch of venues may be required.
Cleveland Browns Stadium is located 184 miles southwest of Orchard Park.
It is looking increasingly likely that a strong band of lake effect snow will be near or over orchard park for the game on Sunday. Winds will gust to over 40 mph creating whiteout conditions wherever this band sets up. The high temperature is 21 degrees on Sunday. Make sure… pic.twitter.com/R8SErVjs7h

Please. God. Give my Bills Mafia friends a hot fucken minute.
It’s not like the entire city wouldn’t show up with shovels and salt bags to ensure roads in and out of Orchard Park were in perfect condition for Josh Allen and the other 52 guys to make it to the stadium for game time. And it’s not luck Buffalo isn’t used to this shit.
Mother nature CRUSHES that poor city with 10 feet of lake effect snow 2-4 times a year, and Buffalonians LIKE it. They welcome it. They load up on frozen wings, Labbatt Blue, and high-quality cannabis starting in September, basically baiting Mother Nature to try to keep them away from the Ralph.
It’ll Never happen.
Bills Mafia doesn’t give a fuck. They’ll attend a Bills Playoff game in Afghanistan if they have to, and it’d be a sellout.
The only thing worse than Buffalo in January? Cleveland in January. But if you have to go, Bills Mafia, brush the snow off your car before you bounce…
