Since the seats at Buffalo's Ralph Wilson Stadium remain under several feet of snow, the NFL is giving fans free seats in a different stadium.

The only catch: those seats are located a few hundred miles west.

Since the Buffalo Bills-New York Jets game originally scheduled for Sunday can't be played in the Bills' home stadium, the NFL has moved the game to Ford Field in Detroit.

That hardly qualifies as a home game for the Bills, but the NFL is doing everything it can to create a warm environment for Buffalo.

First, the free tickets -- which are all general admission -- will be made available to Bills season-ticket holders and anyone who had tickets for the original game. Tickets will also be made available to Detroit Lions season-ticket holders.

Tickets won't be made available to Jets season-ticket holders, since the game is technically a home game for the Bills.

Tickets for the general public have been available since Saturday at DetroitLions.com.

Any leftover tickets will be available at the Ford Field box office.

Maybe it won't feel like a true home game for Buffalo. But when home is covered in almost six feet of snow, home maybe isn't the best place to be.
