A broken fire alarm is shown in the visitors locker room at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati, Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018. The New Orleans Saints played the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. Saints coach Sean Payton says he broke a blaring fire alarm in visitor’s locker room at Cincinnati’s Paul Brown stadium and that he intends to ensure the repairs are paid for.
