Fans at the stadium were moved to the concourse as the storm passed through. Officials appeared to be worried about the lightning in the area.

Fans were confused about the delay because SoFi Stadium has a canopy over the field.

The game was set to get started at 8:55 p.m. ET, according to the ESPN broadcast.
