Nearly four years ago, a major blizzard that hit during what would have been game time forced the NFL to move a Sunday night game between the Vikings and Eagles to Tuesday night. Now, a series of snowstorms could delay Sunday’s game between the Jets and Bills in Buffalo.
Per a league source, moving the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff remains a possibility, with a potential window from Sunday night through Tuesday night.
One factor favoring a delay would be the inability of the Bills to practice. Expecting the Bills to play with little or no preparation would create a dramatic, and possibly unprecedented, disadvantage.
Of course, delaying the game until Tuesday would create a disadvantage for both teams in Week 13. The Bills host the Browns five days later. The Jets would have an extra day, since they face the Dolphins the next Monday night.
No decisions have been made, and the developments of the next day or two will surely help shape the final plan.
