    Members of the St. Louis Rams run on the field before an NFL football game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Sunday, Sept. 27, 2015, in St. Louis. The game was delayed because part of the pyrotechnics used during the introductions briefly caught the turf on fire.

    The matchup between the Pittsburg Steelers and St. Louis Rams was briefly delayed Sunday after a corner of the field caught fire during the pre-game festivities.

    A pyrotechnics show to introduce the starters got a little out of hand and caused the turf near the end zone inside the Edward Jones Dome to briefly catch fire.

    The fire was quickly put out, but both teams were forced to leave the field as crews cleaned fire extinguisher chemicals from the turf.
