Weather delay in Tampa Bay for 2nd straight week

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tampa Bay was under a weather delay for the second straight week as officials delayed the Buccaneers-Broncos game with a thunderstorm approaching.

Play stopped Sunday night with 6:52 remaining in the fourth quarter and the Broncos leading 27-7, as dark clouds rolled in from the east.

Fans were asked to leave their seats and seek shelter in one of the stadium concourses.

Last Sunday, the Rams-Bucs game was delayed for 69 minutes because of lightning at the 2-minute warning in the fourth quarter.
