The Buffalo Bills are on the road at the Chicago Bears for a Week 16 matchup.
Like many others, their pre-game trips were already switched. The Bills (11-3) left for Chicago (3-11) early because of the weather.
The team originally planned to leave on Friday, but did so on Thursday.
Now they have to figure out how to get home too.
Western New York is facing a storm that includes snow and strong winds.
Because of this, New York Governor Kathy Hochul announced that Buffalo-Niagara International Airport is closed until Monday at 11:00 a.m
In most cases, a team leaves town immediately after a race, even overnight. Considering the Bills and Bears tip off at 1:00 p.m., the schedule likely goes back to home Saturday night.
The Bills will have to decide between spending Christmas in Chicago for a bit or changing their plane to Rochester since the airport there is open. Of course, that would depend on a travel ban to drive in Western New York, too.
