Sunday's game between the Indianapolis Colts and Tennessee Titans got off to a hotter than expected start due to a pyrotechnic snafu during the pregame ceremonies.
A piece of pyro equipment erupted into flames just ahead of the national anthem at Nissan Stadium, making for a wild scene on the field.
The fire would be extinguished by a stadium employee, and the game would start on time without further incident.
Here is a view of the aftermath.
