The St. Louis Rams’ offense might not have been on fire Sunday afternoon against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but at least their field was.
The Rams game was delayed because the Rams’ pregame fireworks lit part of the turf at Edward Jones Stadium on fire. According to Yahoo Sports, the fire was put out with fire extinguishers. Wet-vacs were then used to clean up all the burnt remains.
