 INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -The Indianapolis Colts wanted a party atmosphere for their first NFL regular-season game at Lucas Oil Stadium, so they opened it up.
The Colts opted to play Sunday night's season-opener against the Chicago Bears with the retractable roof pulled back and the sliding glass window in the north end zone wide open.
Commissioner Roger Goodell, who attended the game, called the new stadium ``spectacular'' and said the windows on both ends made the Colts' new stadium different from any other in the league.
NFL rules allow the home team to make a decision about whether to open the roof 90 minutes before kickoff. It must remain open through the entire game unless the officials decide to close it for safety reasons.
