The Ravens-Bears game was delayed with 4:51 left in the first quarter due to tornado warnings at Soldier Field. Fans were told to head into covered areas underneath the stadium. The game was temporarily suspended, with the Ravens leading 10-0. Both teams returned to the locker room, as dark clouds moved swiftly overhead.
Wind was picking up and swirling in the stadium and the forecast called for inclement weather in the area for at least another hour, if not longer. Play resumed around 3:30 p.m. EST, a delay of more than an hour.
CSN Baltimore's Brent Harris tweeted out the following picture during the delay showing the severity of the weather:
