For the second time since December 2010, a snowstorm has resulted in Ford Field hosting two teams who don’t play in Detroit.
Per multiple reports, and as widely expected, the Jets and Bills will play there on Monday night at 7:00 p.m. ET.
When Ford Field staged the Giants-Vikings game after the roof of the Metrodome collapsed, tickets were free. Presumably, they’ll be free this time, too.
Also, the Giants-Vikings game was televised regionally by FOX and available via the DirecTV Sunday Ticket package. Jets-Bills presumably will be televised regionally by CBS, with Ravens-Saints on ESPN shown nationally.
The Lions host the Bears at Ford Field on Thursday.
Darren Rovell of ESPN.com reports that Bills season-ticket holders will receive credit for the game toward their 2015 season tickets. (Hello, interest-free loan.) Customers who purchased seats for the Jets game only will receive a full refund to their credit cards. (Hello, possibly free money if folks who purchased the tickets on the secondary market fail to turn in the tickets.)
