    They couldn’t cover the total points, along with the over/under besides the Baltimore win and l San Fran lose. Then their was about 50 million people ready to change channels to watch something else. The momentum of the game had to change and the game had to be stopped. It was bad enough the first 11 second of the 2nd quarter Baltimore scored a 109yd touchdown turning it into a 28 to 6 point game removing for good San Fran’s hope. The 49ers couldn’t even get into the end zone to get a touch town. The lights went out right at the end of 3rd down and the quarterback was sacked with just one hand on his ankle thus giving the ball back to Baltimore. Notice how they gave San Fran 3rd down over to do when they resumed play? Notice to how just half the lights went out? If all the lights where to go out can you imagine all the injuries and lawsuits at the NFL, Stadium, New Orleans, and the Electric Company? To call this an accident and it just happened you might as well believe the world is flat.
