The excitement leading up to the start of the 2013-14 NFL season was unmatched, but those who were ready to watch the Baltimore Ravens begin their Super Bowl defense at Sports Authority Field at Mile High against the Denver Broncos received a bit of a buzz kill.

Just when the Broncos and Ravens were set to take the field, a weather delay was issued due to lightning that was set to delay kick off for at least fifteen minutes.


Of course, nothing can stop the NFL, so the fans stayed in their seats and fans watching on television kept their televisions tuned to NBC to anxiously await the official start to the new season.

Not even a little rain can put a stop to the NFL buzz.

We wait months every year for this moment, so a fifteen minute weather delay is nothing major.

Let’s all sit back, relax, pop an adult beverage and enjoy the first game of the NFL season.
