For the second weekend in a row, the Buffalo Bills are seeking help from their fan base.
The Buffalo Bills overcame both extreme winter weather and the seventh-seeded Pittsburgh Steelers to earn the opportunity to play host to the defending Super Bowl champion Kansas City Chiefs and Patrick Mahomes in the AFC divisional round on Sunday.
But they are running into the same problems as they did in the previous home game.
A lake-effect snow warning is in place in Western New York, which includes Orchard Park where the Bills’ Highmark Stadium is located. That means Buffalo could receive one to three feet of snow.
The Bills are once again calling for volunteers to help shovel out Highmark Stadium ahead of Sunday’s AFC divisional round game.
“In order to provide a safe venue for Sunday’s Bills Divisional Playoff Game vs. the Chiefs, the Buffalo Bills and Jani-King are asking anyone age 18 and over (or under 18 with proper working papers) interested in shoveling snow inside the stadium to come to Highmark Stadium beginning tomorrow (Friday) at 2:00 p.m.”
Similar to last week, the rate is $20 an hour and a break area is provided. Shovels will be provided, but workers are encouraged to bring one of their own.
The lake-effect snow warning is in place until Thursday at 7 p.m. ET,, which means Buffalo could receive snow fall through Saturday.
