POWER OUTAGE

Sunday - 2/3/2013, 9:48pm  ET

The Associated Press

The power has gone out at the Superdome during the third quarter of the Super Bowl.

Minutes after Baltimore scored on a 109-yard Jacoby Jones kickoff return to take a 28-6 lead, several banks of arena lights went out in the dome. Emergency lights went on but play was immediately halted.

Players are standing on the field but when it became clear it would not be a brief outage, they left the field and went to the sideline.

Several of the Ravens are sitting on the field, stretching to try to keep loose.

Lights are on outside the dome; the outage appears confined to the arena.
