After the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills had their wild card matchup pushed back to Monday due to severe winter weather leading to a travel ban in Erie County, there was worries that the game would be delayed once more. Fear not, though- the game is going on as originally rescheduled.

“The game will not be pushed back again,” New York governor Kathy Hochul said. Hochu also said she’s been in contact with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and Bills’ owner Terry Pegula.

The Steelers flew out to Buffalo today after not being able to fly on Saturday. Regardless of weather, the Steelers and Bills will square off at 4:30 EST on Monday. If Pittsburgh wins, they will travel to Baltimore and hope to go 3-0 against the Ravens this season. Should the Bills be the victors, they will host the Kansas City Chiefs in what would be the first road playoff game for Patrick Mahomes.
