Sports Report: Bills Stadium Covered In Snow, Asks Fans For Help Shoveling



The Buffalo Bills are snowed in, and it's unclear whether they'll be able to clear 4 feet of snow at Ralph Wilson Stadium in time to host the New York Jets on Sunday.

And there's more snow in the forecast, with projections of between 1 and 2 feet to fall by Thursday night. Bills Vice President of Operations Andy Major says it usually takes three days to clear a 1-foot snowfall. The snow removal has already begun, and Major is asking fans to help clear the stadium working three shifts around the clock for $10/hour plus game tickets.

On Thursday Night Football, Kansas City is in Oakland at 8:25.

Eli Manning believes he has a lot of good years of football left, and he hopes to continue playing them with the New York Giants. The 33-year-old quarterback says he still loves what he's doing after 11 seasons, two NFL titles and two Super Bowl MVP awards. The past couple of months have been tough for Manning and the Giants, who have lost five straight games.
