The Chicago Bears game against the Baltimore Ravens has been temporarily suspended.
The Chicago-land area has been hit with severe thunderstorms throughout the weekend and those storms turned into tornado warnings on Sunday morning. No word on when the game will resume play. But the expectation is that the delay will last until 1:20 p.m. at the earliest.
Stay tuned to Da Windy City as we will have continuous updates on the delay in the game between the Bears and Ravens.
Here are some tweets from the reporters in attendance at soldier field.
