The Atlanta Falcons - Seattle Seahawks game was delayed after a drone showed up over the field. Officials called a rare timeout for NFL Security and asked that the field be emptied. Between that and the corgi race, it was an incredibly noteworthy game.

The game would resume a few minutes later

In what is probably not much of a coincidence, Saturday night's game between the Stanford Cardinal and Washington Huskies was delayed because a drone. The NFL appeared not to show the drone on television so as to not encourage more drones to run onto the field during future games
