The Buffalo Bills are set to take on the New York Jets in Ford Field this Monday night at 7:00 pm.  They had a hectic 24 hours to get to the field and out to Detroit, when it was announced that they would be relocated to Detroit to play their game against the Jets.

Getting all 53 players to the field in some fashion as well as then getting them all to the airport to fly out.  It was done and they are in Detroit practicing at this point.  They have to focus on the game and what is at hand as well as think about what is happening at home.

Here are a couple of the Bills players weighing in on the snow and this past week that has happened.

Anthony Dixon:

"“What has it been like? Oh man, it’s been an adventure. All the snow, you know, us trying to get back together. It’s been an adventure. It’s been fun and it felt good to get back on the field today.”“Just sitting in the house it just felt like the walls was closing in on me a little bit, so I had to break out and just do something to burn some energy. We out now, and I’m happy for it.”“It’s been different. That’s the one word I can use to describe it. All the ice, the cold temperature. It’s been different. It’s been a learning experience. Next time I’ll definitely be more ready for it. When I hear lake effect, I’m going to run as far as I can. I’m just running. That’s pretty much what I’m going to do.”“That was definitely a surprise. I thought that only happened in movies and stuff like that. That was crazy. It was definitely something to see, and I’m glad I experienced it. I’m better for it.”“It felt like the ice age. You look outside and you see all the cars covered in ice and you really can’t see nothing but white snow. And then you really figure out how tough you is. That’s all it was. Like I said, I had some fun with it. It was kind of like pulling my hair out having to sit in the house and watching the snowstorm pass by, but it was cool to see.”– Syracuse.com"

"“You’re asking your neighbors, who have lived in Buffalo their whole life, and they’re like, ‘Man, we’ve never seen anything like this.’ It’s one of those things. It’ll be a good story for a long time, for me and my kids.”“We just want them to know we’re behind you. We wish we could still be there helping you out and be able to play in front of you. Hopefully we can get that done for the next week. But to everyone back in Buffalo, we love you and stay safe.”– Syracuse.com"

Fred Jackson

"“It was crazy. A lot of snow. A lot of people stuck in the house. It’s good, that I hear that it’s coming to an end. I’m happy for that, but you know, it was a lot of snow, a lot of people being stuck in the house, can’t get to what you need, so it’s good that that’s finally over with.”“You got to see a lot of people coming together. Today when I was leaving, I saw a neighborhood come together and scoop out a lot of different driveways when I was leaving, so you got to see things like that. People walking to the store and getting stuff for people in the neighborhood, things like that. Seeing people come together in harsh times is something that you always like to be a part of. With the community in Buffalo, that’s something you definitely saw. Granted it’s not the situation we want to be in, but to see people rising and take care of people like that is something that you are definitely happy to be a part of.”– Syracuse.com"
