PITTSBURGH, PA — The Pittsburgh Steelers Wild Card game is anticipated to continue at its current hour, 4:30 p.m. ET on Monday, January 14. Despite the continuous snowfall in the Buffalo area, the NFL is certain that the game will not be rescheduled.

During a news conference, New York Governor Kathy Hochul stated that the weather for kickoff is expected to be in the teens with a wind chill near zero degrees. However, come game time, the weather should no longer be dangerous.

“I’m not saying it’s going to be pleasant, but conditions won’t be life threatening,” Hochul said in a statement.

Over the last 24 hours, Orchard Park has received four to six inches of snow per hour and is anticipated to receive one to three inches of snow per hour overnight.
