Rams-Steelers Delayed Due to Turf Fire (Videos)
If you were wondering why the Steelers-Rams game hasn’t started yet, it’s because there was a little accident during the pregame introductions.
While the Rams were making their way through the tunnel and onto the field, the pyrotechnics being used at the Edward Jones Dome set the AstroTurf on fire:

The stadium groundscrew has since whipped out the vacuums and are working hard to fix the problem so that they can get the game underway:
THIS is the best vacuum cleaner that the Rams could afford? It’s just spitting everything back out!! https://t.co/R654ybgsQn

Despite their crappy vacuums, it appears as though the problem is fixed and the game is set to begin. Enjoy!
