NFL Statement re New York Jets-Buffalo Bills Game

Due to public safety concerns in light of the ongoing weather emergency in western New York, Sunday’s Jets-Bills game has been rescheduled to Monday night at 7 p.m. ET and relocated to Ford Field in Detroit.

As mentioned earlier today, public safety resources in western New York must be fully available to deal with the recovery from the storm.  We continue our discussions with the team and the Red Cross on ways the NFL can support the community through this weather disaster.

We greatly appreciate the hospitality of the Detroit Lions in hosting the Bills and this game, which will be televised by CBS in the New York and Buffalo area markets.  While Ford Field could have hosted the game on Sunday, in order to give the Bills as much practice time as possible under the circumstances, the decision to play on Monday night was made.  The Lions’ practice facility will be available to the Bills on Friday and moving the game to Monday night will enable the Bills to practice on Friday and Saturday and have their walk-through on Sunday.  The Bills have been unable to practice this week in Buffalo.

Details on tickets and other game day information for Monday night will be announced at a later date.

 NFL telecasts were the three most-watched shows on television last week with the FOX national telecast (mostly Eagles-Packers) topping the charts with 26.5 million average viewers.

This marks the 11th time in 11 weeks that an NFL game has topped the weekly viewership charts, and the 10th time in 11 weeks that at least two NFL games have topped the weekly viewership charts.

NFL game windows account for the top 11 and 28 of the top 30 most-watched shows on television since the NFL season kicked off on Sept. 4.
