ORCHARD PARK – After initially saying he would travel to Orchard Park this weekend to the Buffalo Bills playoff game, Governor Andrew Cuomo now says he won’t attend.







Last week, Cuomo announced that 6,772 fans would be allowed to attend the playoff game against the Colts at Bills Stadium.

Right after saying that, Cuomo noted that he would be one of those fans in attendance.







This met a mixed reaction from western New Yorkers, with thousands even signing a petition to ban him from the game.

Cuomo says now he won’t be attending the game this weekend, and instead, he’s giving his ticket away to a local healthcare employee, an ECMC nurse.













Unless you’re one of the fortunate fans who got a ticket to the playoff game, you can watch the Bills battle the Colts this Saturday at 1:05 p.m. on CBS.
