Goodell says Monday that the backup system was ready, but Entergy New Orleans, which provides power to the stadium, and Superdome operator SMG were able to reboot the original system.
The 34-minute delay in the third quarter forced the league to consider contingency plans if the game between the Baltimore Ravens and San Francisco 49ers couldn't resume. But NFL vice president of business operations Eric Grubman says there was virtually no chance of not being able to continue play Sunday night.
Baltimore led 28-6 when the lights went out, and wound up winning 34-31.
