NFL game delayed after fireworks set the pitch on fire

One for the ‘What Happened Next’ round.

SUNDAY NIGHT’S NFL game between the St Louis Rams and the Pittsburgh Steelers was delayed after a pre-match fireworks display set part of the pitch on fire.

As the Rams players made their entrance, a section of turf caught fire before it was quickly extinguished.

Both teams returned to the locker rooms while the pitch was repaired, and the game eventually started after a slight delay.
