Bills fan plans to keep consecutive games streak alive in Detroit

Ken Johnson has not missed a Bills game in 21 years and he's not going to let a natural disaster disrupt that streak. 

Johnson, a software developer from Rochester, has been to each of the Bills' last 335 games. Even though this week's game against the Jets has been moved to Detroit because of the prolific snowfall in the Buffalo area, Johnson plans to cheer on his team.

"You think I'm not going to Detroit!?" Johnson asked when approached by the Associated Press. "Close personal friends and stuff are worried that I might not make the game. I just wouldn't expect that from them, like this is a big deal."

Johnson doesn't see what the big deal is. He started brainstorming alternative plans once it looked like the game wouldn't be played in Buffalo. He can try to fly standby on a direct flight from Rochester, or he can make the five-and-half-hour drive to the Motor City.

Really? All this trouble for a game against the Jets?
