If the Week 12 game between the Jets and Bills can’t be played at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo, it will be played at a different location. Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the three options for an alternative venue are Detroit, Toronto, and New Jersey.
A decision currently is expected to be made by Friday afternoon.
If the game remains in Buffalo, it most likely would be played on Monday or Tuesday night. Even though the snow won’t be falling by the time Monday and Tuesday roll around, the snow still needs to be cleared — and it will be difficult to have police and emergency personnel present for the game.
Detroit makes the most sense as an alternative destination. Logistically, it could be difficult to get two teams and their personnel clearance for a quick trip to Canada, and it would be competitively unfair to give the Jets an extra home game. With Detroit being the hometown of the late Ralph Wilson, who founded the Bills in 1960, it would be fitting for Detroit to host a Bills game in the same year he passed away.
