In an interview on ESPN's "E:60", Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs said he believes NFL commissioner Roger Goodell "most definitely" had something to do with the Super Bowl blackout. A power outage at the SuperDome delayed the game between the Ravens and 49ers for 34 minutes.
"I was like Vegas, parlor tricks, you know what I mean? I was just like, oh Roger Goodell, he never stops. He always has something up his sleeve. He just couldn't let us just have this one in a landslide, huh?" Suggs said. "I thought he had a hand in it. Most definitely. I thought he had a hand it in because we walk out on the Denver game. Linebackers are warming up on their sideline and who do we see talking with John Elway? It's like... hm? I thought you know, your commissioner supposed to be neutral."

Suggs' former teammate, Ray Lewis, also suggested that the power going out at the SuperDome was no coincidence during an interview for the 2012 Ravens edition of "America's Game."
"I'm not gonna accuse nobody of nothing because I don't know facts," Lewis said with a smile, per USA Today Sports. "But you're a zillion-dollar company, and your lights go out? No. No way."
Days after the Super Bowl, the company supplying the stadium with electricity claimed that the blackout was caused by a device installed to prevent a power failure, per the Associated Press.
