The Buffalo Bills-Houston Texans game was interrupted by a loss of power at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York. The incident caused some difficulties during the CBS broadcast but the game did not appear to be seriously affected.

According to WIVB in Buffalo, its report said that, “TV screens suddenly went blue around 3 p.m. as the Texans were punting with about 5:20 left in the third quarter. CBS cut to commercial and was able to regain its game feed shortly after, but could not immediately get broadcasters Beth Mowins and Tiki Barber back on the air.”

The CBS studio crew, led by James Brown, offered commentary over the video feed. CBS appeared to be adding in fake crowd noise, similar to what networks did during games with empty stadiums during the pandemic.
