Seahawks-Dolphins delayed when sprinklers turn on
It’s bad enough that the Dolphins are playing in front of a mostly-empty stadium Sunday. But Miami’s dismal home situation turned downright laughable in the third quarter, when its game against Seattle underwent a brief delay because the Sun Life Stadium sprinkler started running.

Both teams briefly retreated to their respective sidelines while the situation was resolved, a process took a couple of minutes. Seattle led 14-7 at the time of the sudden, uh, “rain delay,” and wound up losing 24-21.
