Buccaneers game delayed for second straight week due to lightning

BY foxsports • October 2, 2016

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers might want to consider investing in a retractable roof sometime in the future. For the second consecutive week, the Bucs had their game delayed by lightning.

But unlike last week, when Tampa Bay was attempting to rally past the Rams, this week's contest at Raymond James Stadium has been one-sided. The Broncos were up 27-7 with 6:52 left when officials cleared the field.

Last week, the teams had to wait more than an hour before retaking the field for the final 2 minutes of play.

After another lengthy delay, the game finally resumed.
