There will be a game on Monday night in Detroit, but not involving the guy in the picture.
Take a look at this tweet from Tom Leyden, reporter out of Detroit:
Per NFL source – It’s official – #Jets vs. #Bills Monday Night at 7pm at Ford Field.

So, it appears that the game will be on Monday night in Detroit. The Bills will still be the home team, but obviously this means the Bills lose a home game on their field. Tough break, but one that was clearly needed with the unfortunate weather in upstate New York.

The extra time will give the Bills the opportunity to practice, as soon as they can be transported out of Buffalo of course. Better to get the game in where everyone is safe, rather than trying to force the game into an unfortunately dangerous situation.
So, it will take an extra day before the Jets get to build on their win against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
