Mario Williams Plows Jim Kelly's Snow-Clogged Driveway

Buffalo Bills defensive lineman Mario Williams gave Hall of Famer Jim Kelly a pass – a get-out-of-shoveling pass – by plowing the retired quarterback's driveway during the upstate New York city's huge snowstorm.

With the team stuck at home by a record snowfall blowing in off Lake Erie, the players performed good deeds, according to the New York Daily News, and Kelly posted a video on Instagram thanking Williams and David Kern for helping him dig out.




Kelly recently won a long battle with cancer.

The NFL announced late in the week that it was moving the Bills game against the New York Jets to Detroit's Ford Field on Monday, according to ESPN.

A rarity for the league, the move was made after the NFL declared that Buffalo's snow-filled Ralph Wilson Stadium wouldn't be ready to host the game on Sunday. The stadium was buried under 220,000 tons of snow this week, noted ESPN.

The team had come under fire this week when it offered fans $10 per hour and free tickets to help shovel the stadium, leaving public officials to charge that the Bills were trying to take needed resources from the region's recovery effort.

."Public safety resources in western New York must be fully available to deal with the recovery from the storm," the NFL said in a statement, noted ESPN.

ESPN wrote that the Bills coaching staff had been living at the Bills' headquarters since Tuesday. Many of the players have been snowed in and unable to travel to the team facility.
