Weather delayed Bears-Ravens' overtime game

The Ravens-Bears game at Chicago's Soldier Field was delayed for about two hours because of a heavy downpour of rain. The ballgame eventually went into overtime which the Bears won 23-20 on Robbie Gould's winning field goal. 

Here's a look at how things played out in the Windy City:

Original post: 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.

The concourses at Soldier Field are not very wide, so fans don't have much room to go out. Check out the cramped conditions on this Vine.

Meanwhile, to no one's surprise, Bears fans have found ways to entertain themselves. But for how long?
