Bills ask fans to shovel snow before Chiefs game following another major storm.

As usual in the playoffs, the Buffalo Bills are asking supporters for aid.

The Bills requested snow shovelers at Highmark Stadium on Thursday ahead of their playoff game Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs as western New York received additional snow. Fans 18 and older should gather at the stadium on Friday at 2 p.m. local time to work all afternoon and evening. The hourly rate remains $20.

Before their wild-card triumph against the Steelers, the Bills made repeated calls with the same request. The game was moved from Sunday to Monday due to a Sunday snowfall. Sunday evening and Monday morning before kickoff, the Bills requested supporters to shovel the stadium out of snow.

Last week's call generated sights like this and prepared Highmark Stadium's field for Monday's game. Even if visiting Steelers supporters had to dig at kickoff:

Another multi-day storm dropped additional snow on Buffalo this week. On Tuesday, officials issued a lake-effect snow warning until Thursday night. That storm piled snow on snow as predicted.

Snow was falling at 1-2 inches per hour, prompting a travel ban. The Buffalo Sabres' Wednesday game against the Chicago Blackhawks was moved to Thursday. Some areas experienced 30-plus inches of snow in 24 hours, including 12 inches in Orchard Park, where the Bills play.

Snow is predicted to end Thursday night and not fall on Sunday's game. Between now and then, the Bills need help cleaning up.

As of Thursday, Yahoo Weather predicts overcast skies, 21–27 degrees, and no precipitation for Buffalo on Sunday.
