Chicago is getting hit with a massive storm, and Soldier Field officials have asked fans to clear the seating area and move to the concourse as the game between the Baltimore Ravens and Chicago Bears is suspended briefly.

Play was stopped following Ravens kicker Justin Tucker's 52-yard field goal, and the teams cleared the field shortly afterward. Ray Rice scored a touchdown earlier in the quarter, and the Ravens lead 10-0.

Game officials are determining what to do next. The game will not resume prior to 2:25 p.m. ET, per reports.

Meanwhile, the stands are pretty much empty.

Remember, the Ravens had their opener delayed against the Denver Broncos in Week 1 because of inclement weather.

Weather has been a story all over the NFL in Week 11. Check out this ripped American flag in the New York Jets-Buffalo Bills game.
