CLEVELAND (AP) -The Buffalo Bills charter plane got stuck in the mud Monday, so the team traveled home by bus.
The pilot took too wide a turn from one taxiway to another at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport and the front wheel of the plane got stuck, airport spokeswoman Pat Smith said. The team was not on board the plane.
``It wasn't snowing at the time. We don't know why he did this,'' Smith said.
The Bills, who lost to the Cleveland Browns 8-0 on Sunday, decided to take charter buses back to Buffalo. The five-bus caravan is expected to arrive by early afternoon.
``Everybody's fine and everybody's anxious to get home,'' Bills spokesman Scott Berchtold said.
Players were given the rest of the day off and not scheduled back until Wednesday, when they resume practice for the game against the New York Giants in Buffalo's home season finale.
The plane, which got stuck around 8 a.m., was being towed out of the mud. It didn't affect other flights.
