SOLDIER FIELD (CBS) — Sunday’s Bears game against the Ravens was delayed with 4:51 left in the first quarter by severe weather.
Storms rolled in along the lakefront shortly after kickoff. Fans were warned about a possible evacuation to the concourse with about 10 minutes left in the first quarter and were eventually told to leave their seats after the Ravens kicked a field goal with 4:51 left in the first quarter.
The Bears were losing 10-0 to the Ravens at the time of the delay. After a first offensive series with two botched plays, the Bears punted to the Ravens, who marched downfield and scored a touchdown in just six plays. The drive featured a 47-yard run by Ray Rice, who is only averaging 2.5 yards per carry this season. Rice scored on a 1-yard touchdown run.
We’ll continue to update this story as we get more information on the weather delay.
