Lions fans hoping to scout in Week 11 Detroit’s Week 12 opponent won’t have to go far. The Bills are playing at Ford Field, hosting the Browns in a game moved from Buffalo due to a massive snowstorm.

Per the NFL, details are being finalized regarding the purchase of tickets to the game.

Earlier on Thursday, Bills G.M. Brandon Beane said that Buffalo season-ticket holders and app users will have priority, when the tickets go on sale on Friday. Beane also said that the cost of tickets will be much lower than usual.

“They’re not gonna be standard price,” Beane said. “Unless you’re a Cleveland Browns fan.”

For Cleveland Browns fans, Detroit is about 20 miles closer than Buffalo. And with Buffalo residents possibly snowed in, more tickets will likely be available than if the game were played at the Bills’ home stadium.

Regardless, it’s hard to imagine the stadium being full on Sunday.

  1. Detroit residents should jump at this opportunity to go watch one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL, and a possible future Hall of Famer.

    Jacoby Brissett is a beast!

  2. The Bills should open the stadium for the fans and show the game on the big screen. And when it’s being telecasted show the fans in the snow.

    What a soft, pathetic franchise.

    2 years ago the pats slept in the hotel in the stadium because they were expecting 8 inches. Lmao.

    Build a dome that can handle the snow load already.
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++

    You must live in a region where it does not snow. Roofing strength is only one problem. The region is going to be shut down with impassable roads. 3 to 6 feet is going to take multiple days to clear just the main roads, neighborhoods will be impassable, so fans cannot leave home.

  5. They should give the tickets to local families who couldn’t otherwise afford to go to an NFL game.

    People have no idea if they don’t live near the Great Lakes

    That’s actually smart. Don’t have to worry about traveling before.

    So you can play at home during COVID without fans but not for a lot of snow?

    I think the issue would be how the browns would get there. The farther east they come, the worse it gets. Erie is already getting hammered

  9. If the storm is severe enough to potentially significantly impact the entire city of Buffalo, why is it “weak” to move where the game is played? There are so many things that go into a game like staffing, security, transportation (including for fans), delivery of concessions supplies, etc. It’s not just a matter of two teams lining up against each other.

  10. Do people really not understand that they’re expecting enough snowfall to have to shut down parts of the thruway that go nearest the stadium?
    They also expect to issue alerts for everyone to stay home anyway.
    It’s not about the Bills being “soft”.

  11. Buffalo is about to declare a state of emergency with the incoming storm and fans are upset they won’t get to see a snow game…there will be plenty of other opportunities for that!

    First the Bills couldn’t handle the heat now the cold..lol
    *************************************************************
    It is BS how the visiting team has to be on a sideline 40+ degrees hotter than the DULLphins. Total BS.

  13. I expect the Orchard Park gov would not issue permits to have the game. With that amount of snow people will be stuck at home for several days. They don’t need 50,000 people stuck outside at the stadium or along the roads.

  14. Bills are soft for not playing in a blizzard, seriously? Yet warm weather teams play indoors, air conditioned and no wind.

  15. Oh, I don’t know, I think plenty of Detroit area football fans would like to see a good football team for once.
