With their own stadium snowed under, the Buffalo Bills are headed to Detroit to play Monday night's game and team members are traveling in style — by snowmobile. Several players were picked up on the machines at their houses, which were walloped by five to seven feet of snow during this week's storms. Cars were waiting on the main roads to whisk them to the stadium and then the airport for the flight to Ford Field.

The death toll from the epic snowfall climbed to 13 on Friday. That includes two elderly residents of a nursing home in the town of Cheektowaga who died during an evacuation when the roof began buckling. At least 30 building collapses were reported overnight into Friday.
