The power went out early in the third quarter of Super Bowl action, when the Baltimore Ravens led the San Francisco 49ers 28-6. Players stayed on the field and stretched as they waited to get back into action, while a public address announcer asked fans to remain in their seats.

Following the outage, the 49ers went on a scoring binge to close the gap with the Ravens, who had led early on in the game.
