(KWCH/KCTV) An equipment failure in Jacksonville caused CBS to leave the Kansas City Chiefs game for the Browns game.

A CBS Sports spokesperson released the following statement Sunday afternoon:

“Due to a power outage during the Kansas City-Jacksonville game, viewers were switched to the Tennessee – Cleveland game and then to the Buffalo – NY Jets game.

We regret that we were unable to return the audience to their scheduled game before power was restored.”

Bezu Halliwell, who works for CBS, shared a photo on Twitter saying the truck there lost power during the break and was unable to keep streaming the game.
