There were dramatic scenes at the Nissan Stadium on Sunday as a pyrotechnic device caught fire ahead of the Tennessee Titans vs Indianapolis Colts NFL clash in Nashville.
The machine which shoots flames into the sky for the players entrance malfunctioned and produced a large fire just before the match started.
Black smoke filled the air and a large ball of fire surrounded the device in worrying scenes in the 69-000-seater stadium.
However, staff were on hand quickly to get the situation in control with fire extinguishers and the start of the game was not even delayed.
NFL reporters Mike Jones and Zak Keefer managed to get footage of the dramatic accident.
