Oddly, instead of just whistling quietly and walking away toward Los Angeles from a flaming Edward Jones Dome, the Rams opted to play the game after a brief delay. The flambe Rams put out the fire and then addressed concerns that the foam and water would make for a slippery surface. Out came the Shop-Vacs and soon enough the game was underway.
The game started just before 1:30 p.m. EDT, with fairly minimal damage to the turf.
