Update: The Steelers-Cardinals game will resume play at 4:30 p.m. ET following a 10-minute warmup period for each team.
The Pittsburgh Steelers and Arizona Cardinals have incurred their second weather delay in Week 13. Rain has been intermittent throughout the game, but with lightning reported in the area, fans and teams have been instructed to take shelter with 7:18 left in the third quarter.
The delay was called just as the Cardinals took a 17-3 lead over the Steelers, scoring their second touchdown of the day, capitalizing on fumble recovery on a botched snap from center Mason Cole to backup quarterback Mitch Trubisky. Trubisky is subbing in for second-year quarterback Kenny Pickett after he was ruled out after the half with an ankle injury.
Winds have been active at the stadium, Brooke Pryor of ESPN has showcased with several videos on Twitter Sunday.
