So much is up in the air for the Buffalo Bills this week. The snowstorm that had been forecast earlier in the week has started to land in the city Thursday night into Friday and is expected to continue into the weekend.
Their game with the Cleveland Browns has already been moved to Detroit where the Bills will stay through their game on Thanksgiving Day against the Lions. Buffalo is also dealing with an illness that impacted the team and added another player to the list on Thursday.
Now, due to the snow that has already arrived, the team has canceled Friday’s practice:

A moved game, illness, two practices impacted (one by illness, one by weather) and the potential to have to fly into Detroit the morning of a 1 PM game could really hinder Buffalo this week. The team is very talented but coming off of two straight losses now compounded by a chaotic week.
The Browns have struggled this year but have a chance to take advantage of a weakened Bills team in Week 11.
