NFL investigating alternate sites for Week 11 game, per reports
Fans may love watching a good snow game when it comes to football, but there is a point where too much snow becomes a problem. That could be the case for Week 11 action in the NFL.
According to weather forecasts, parts of New York could see between 3-6 feet of snow this weekend. That would pose serious problems for the game in Buffalo between the Bills and the Cleveland Browns.
According to Adam Schefter, there is also a possibility of “thundersnow” with the NFL monitoring the storm and talking with the two teams about potential alternates. The last time the NFL moved a game for snow was in 2014.
