New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo says it would be "impractical" at this time for the Buffalo Bills to host the New York Jets on Sunday because of a lake-effect snowstorm that continues to hit the region.
Cuomo spoke Thursday morning after spending the past day touring communities south of Buffalo, including the Bills home in Orchard Park. The storm has dumped more than 5 feet of snow since Monday night, with another 1 to 2 feet projected to fall by Friday.
On Wednesday, Bills Vice President of Operations Andy Major wasn't sure whether there was enough time to clear the stadium and grounds of the estimated 220,000 tons of snow by Sunday.
The NFL has not yet determined whether the game will be postponed or potentially relocated.
