Bills to play Browns in Buffalo

The Buffalo Bills, forced to play a neutral-site game in Week 12 because of a severe snowstorm, will host Sunday's home game at Ralph Wilson Stadium against the Cleveland Browns, a team official told ESPN.

"We will be good to go Sunday," a Bills official said via text message. "Shovelers are no longer needed. Had over 500 people [participating] and with the [temperature] warmup, we made great progress."

A lake-effect storm dumped more than 5 feet of snow on the Buffalo region last week.

The Bills will play the New York Jets on Monday night at Ford Field. The Detroit Lions have been gracious to the Bills during their visit to Detroit this weekend, as Lions officials set up a makeshift locker room in their training facility, giving each Bills player his own locker.

Detroit also flew in extra personnel to help the Bills' medical, equipment and video staffs.

This is the second time in four years that Ford Field has hosted a neutral-site game. In 2010, a game between the Minnesota Vikings and New York Giants was moved to Detroit because the Metrodome roof collapsed.
