It is Saturday, November 19, 2022, and the Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills are preparing to play their Week 11 game in Detroit on Sunday afternoon.
Even though the NFL moved the game from snowy Buffalo, the weather in the Buffalo area is the top headline for the Saturday edition of Browns Nation news and notes.

The massive blizzard has blanketed Buffalo.

There was no false advertising associated with this storm.
As of 7:00 PM Friday evening, 5 1/2 feet of snow fell at Orchard Park.

The next logistical question is whether the Bills players can travel to the airport on Saturday to fly out to Detroit.
There's a strong belief and plan the Bills will be able to fly tomorrow afternoon to Detroit. The issue, of course, is getting everyone to make it to the airport.

It is not clear what time the Bills are planning to leave.
The city of Buffalo is under a travel ban as of 7:00 AM Saturday morning.
#Buffalo UPDATE: Due to heavy snowfall overnight, a Travel Ban has been issued for the City of Buffalo starting at 7am this morning.
Only authorized personnel are allowed to travel at this time. City officials say overnight a foot to two feet of snow fell in parts of the city.

2. Greg Newsome Out, David Njoku In For Sunday’s Game
It is a combination of bad news and good news for the Browns regarding the availability of star players for Sunday’s game.
Cornerback Greg Newsome II has been ruled out of Sunday’s game after a collision in practice caused him to sustain a concussion.

3. Kosar At Cavs Game
Browns legend Bernie Kosar got a standing ovation at the Cleveland Cavaliers game tonight.

It is great to see the support for this young Cavaliers team from Browns’ heroes past and present.
There is no sports-playing human being on this planet that gets a bigger ovation at #Cavs games than Bernie Kosar. Dude is an absolute rockstar. Not Terry Francona. Not Myles Garrett. Not Kevin Stefanski. Not Joe Thomas. No. One.

Perhaps Kosar should go to Cavs games more often as the Cavs snapped a five-game losing streak on Friday night with a double overtime victory over Charlotte by the score of 132-122.
