NEW ORLEANS (Reuters) - A power outage early in the third quarter put the Super Bowl on hold with the Baltimore Ravens holding a commanding 28-6 lead over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
Moments after Baltimore's Jacoby Jones opened the second half with a Super Bowl record 109-yard kickoff return for a touchdown, half of the overheard lights in the Superdome went out.
