Stormy weather suspends Bears-Ravens for 1 hour, 53 minutes

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

UPDATE (2:34 p.m. ET): The game resumed after a 1 hour, 53 minute weather delay.

With massive storms looming in Chicago and the possibility of tornadoes in the area, fans were evacuated from the stands at Soldier Field during the Bears-Ravens game, which was temporarily suspended because of weather.

Referee Gene Steratore announced to the crowd that the game in Chicago was temporarily suspended with 4:51 remaining in the first quarter and the Ravens leading 10-0.

The public address announcer said that "although there appears to be no immediate danger" to fans, they were required to leave their seats and get to the covered concourses.

As you can see above, the stormclouds hanging above the stadium are massive and imposing. It's believed that the worst part of the storm is set to start at 1:41 p.m. ET, last for 10-15 minutes and then start up again at 2:20 p.m. ET.

This is the second weather delay the Ravens have dealt with this season, after they had a lightning storm pop up in Denver during their opener against the Broncos.
