Bills continue to ask for shovelers, remind fans to dress for snow
Kickoff is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. ET with more snow expected Monday amid several days of sevre weather in Western New York that already forced Governor Kathy Hochul to push the game back one day. Hochul said on Sunday the game would not be postponed again.

The Bills also reminded fans attending Monday's game to "dress appropriately for the cold weather including waterproof boots and pants." A statement added the snow removal crews "are working relentlessly to remove as much snow as possible before kick off."
The Bills are calling on anyone over the age of 18 and paying $20 per hour with food and beverage provided as well.
Shovelers began showing up in Orchard Park, N.Y., Sunday with Highmark Stadium blanketed by snow. The team previously asked for help shoveling Sunday night, promising to provide those who worked through the night breakfast.
A travel ban in the region meant some could not report to the stadium until early Monday.
"Game time on Monday, weather conditions will be very cold. They'll be in the teens, and even wind-chill factors as low as zero, maybe to nine degrees, but that's going to be very, very cold," Hochul said Sunday. "But this will be without the danger of the winds and the blinding snow and the hazardous traffic conditions for those as they traveled to the stadium or leaving based on current predictions. So that is a better dynamic, by far better dynamic, than we would've had today. I'm not saying it's going to be pleasant, but conditions won't be life threatening either."
