Bills Runningback makes the best of a bad situation

It has been a bad week for the Buffalo Bills as they have seen their city brought to a stop by extreme weather and their season disturbed as a result.

The area of Buffalo has been hit hard with snow and has unfortunately seen numerous deaths as a result.

From a sporting point of view, the Bills game with the New York Jets on Sunday has been postponed and moved to Detroit.

For the team, it can't have been a good week for the Bills players as they have been unable to train due to the adverse weather conditions.

Their pre-game training has been heavily disrupted ahead of a crucial divisional match with the Jets.


But its not all doom and gloom around Buffalo, the citizens are finding ways to keep their spirits up and that includes Bills Runningback Fred Jackson as well.

Jackson has uploaded a video to Instagram of him actually bringing the snow inside his home rather than trying to keep it out.

The reason Jackson is welcoming the freezing mush into his house is because his daughters - like most little girls across the world right now are obsessed with the movie Frozen.

In the video we see that his children have all the toys to go with the film and were clearly very eager to play with them in order to take their minds off the tragedy around their city.

Jackson has therefore filled his bathtub with snow and created a Frozen play set for his daughters to enjoy amidst all the negativity.

Its a great thing to see that families around Buffalo can still be upbeat with so much destruction around them.

Buffalo needs a win

With so many morale crippling events happening around the Buffalo area, I think its fair to say they will be hoping their football team can give them something to cheer.

A win over their divisional and state rivals the Jets should go a long way to achieving that goal, even if it is being played in Michigan.

A game against the Jets will be a welcome sight for the Bills too whose last on-field outings was a very poor 22-9 defeat to the Miami Dolphins.

The Bills play-off hopes are essentially hanging by a thread in the AFC despite having a 5-5 record.

They still sit third in the AFC East behind Miami's 6-4 record and the ever impressive New England Patriots who stand at 8-2.

So a game against the 2-8 Jets could be just what they need to possible create a late season push for the play-offs.
