NFL Announces Bills-Bengals Game Will Not Resume This Week

The NFL announced on Tuesday that they will not resume the match between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals this week after they decided to preemptively cancel their game on Monday due to the devastating chest injury Bills' safety Damar Hamlin's had suffered in the first quarter of MNF. 

The NFL also iterated that they do not know if or when the Bengals and Bills match will take place, but notified the league that Week 18 will resume as regularly scheduled. 

As it stands now, the Bills will faceoff against the New England Patriots on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. EST and Cincinnati will host the Baltimore Ravens, but the timeslot is currently uncertain.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell also sent a memo to teams on Tuesday as a result of the Hamlin situation and reiterated the NFL's present stance on how they plan to proceed during these fluid circumstances. 

"No decision has been made regarding the possible resumption of the game at a later date and we have no announced any changes to this weekend's schedule. We will promptly advise all clubs of any decisions that are made regarding these matters."
