Players trying to stay limber, rally the crowd

The lights have been off at the Superdome for some reason for nearly 15 minutes, and players are trying to pass the time by stretching and jogging down the sideline. Some are throwing footballs.

A few minutes ago, Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed tried to rouse the restless crowd by running down the sideline for a quick rally. It didn’t long, and chants and boos have continued to break out.

The lights seem to be slowly coming back, and now a fire alarm has sounded. So that’s cool.
