Steelers and Cardinals game delayed twice for inclement weather before Arizona wins 24-10

ESPN: Steelers head coach received shocked letter from fan to….

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Arizona Cardinals’ 24-10 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers was delayed twice Sunday because of inclement weather.

Halftime at Acrisure Stadium was extended by more than 30 minutes after an initial round of heavy wind and rain swept through Pittsburgh. The second delay lasted nearly an hour and came with the Cardinals up 17-3 midway through the third quarter.

Pittsburgh treated the breaks as extended halftimes, with players trying to keep warm while the coaches tried to come up with adjustments on both sides of the ball.

The Cardinals, meanwhile, said they held a dance-off while trying to put the finishing touches on just their third win of the season.

“The energy in the locker room (during) both (delays) was really good,” first-year Arizona coach Jonathan Gannon said. “The detail, the focus of what we’re trying to get accomplished when we go back out I thought was really good. They handled it really well. It’s kind of disjointed a little bit, but came out ready to play however many times we walked out of the locker room tonight.”
