NEW ORLEANS -- No, it wasn't Beyonce's fault.
"There's no indication at all that the halftime show had anything to do with this," Goodell said.
Goodell said the problem was something that can be fixed and prepared for. The league still is investigating the causes of the outage. The commissioner lauded the job New Orleans did as a host city and indicated the power outage would not hurt the city's chances of getting another Super Bowl in the future.
The Superdome, meanwhile, confirmed that Beyonce's halftime show ran on generated power that was not using the power inside the stadium.
