ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. – Buffalo Bills receiver Stevie Johnson has a bone to pick with the NFL schedule maker.
With temperatures dropping and snow piling up outside the Bills' facility, Johnson wondered who had the bright idea to have Buffalo (4-7) "host" the warm-weather Atlanta Falcons (2-9) inside the climate-controlled confines of Toronto's Rogers Centre on Sunday.
The Falcons, who play their home games in a dome, "must have fixed the schedule," Johnson joked.
That means the wintry conditions at Orchard Park won't be a factor. Buffalo prepares for its annual trip north of the border to resume the "Bills in Toronto" series, which was first established in 2008 and renewed for another five years in January.
Buffalo is coming off its bye week, and is 3-3 at Ralph Wilson Stadium.
