The Monday Night Football match up between the San Francisco 49ers and Pittsburgh Steelers was delayed for 20 minutes due to a power failure from a blown transformer. The officials were able to get some back up power going so the game could get started. A little ways through the second quarter however, the power went out again.
The players are still out on the field keeping loose as it looks like power is slowly being restored to the lights, but there is no word on how long they will allow a delay before a game is called. NFL commissioner Rodger Goodell is the only person with the authority to suspend the game.
Prime suspect? Suspended Steelers linebacker James Harrison...
