The Buffalo Bills have another big game at Highmark Stadium on Sunday, and a lot of snow has fallen in Orchard Park, New York.

That means the Bills need snow shovelers to clear the stadium ahead of the team's Divisional Round matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Bills said anyone 18 and older, or under 18 with proper working papers, who is interested in shoveling should go to Highmark Stadium beginning at 2 p.m. on Friday. 

According to the Bills, shovelers can shovel snow throughout the day and evening. Shovelers will be paid $20 an hour and a comfortable, warm break area will be provided.

"Prospective snow shovelers are asked to dress appropriately for the weather (gloves, scarves, hats, coats, etc.) and to bring their own shovels for shoveling between seating areas, if possible (shovels will be provided if you do not have one)," the Bills said.

Snow shovelers also helped dig out the stadium last week for the Bills' matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Conditions were so tough the game got postponed from Sunday to Monday, when the Bills won 31 to 17. Shovelers and crews helping clear the stadium last week were among the only exceptions to the area's travel ban.

The game was originally scheduled to be played on Sunday, but had to be delayed after more than 9 inches of snow fell in Buffalo over the weekend.
