Rescheduling of Steelers vs. Bills AFC Wild Card Game Explained
The anticipated AFC Wild Card game between the No. 7 Pittsburgh Steelers and the No. 2 Buffalo Bills, initially slated for Sunday afternoon in Buffalo, underwent a change of plans. On Saturday, as a winter storm swept through the region, New York Governor Kathy Hochul, in collaboration with the NFL, announced the postponement of the game to Monday. This decision was made with a primary focus on ensuring public safety, considering the travel ban in effect for a significant portion of Erie County.
Due to the adverse weather conditions, Bills players and coaches faced logistical challenges in accessing the facility on Sunday, prompting the rescheduling of the game. As of now, the matchup is rescheduled for 4:30 pm ET today, Monday, January 15th.
