During Sunday’s Bills-Eagles game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Buffalo’s Shaq Lawson and Jordan Phillips got into a physical confrontation with an Eagles fan sitting behind the Bills bench.
The clip of the altercation went viral and led to Phillips and Lawson releasing statements, saying the Eagles fan made “life threatening” threats against them.
In the Instagram post, Lawson claimed the fan began making the threats before the game but was not removed by security after the Bills brought it to their attention.
He also apologized for the shove, saying he “crossed a line” and it was a “mistake.”
Phillips, meanwhile, called the alleged threats from the fan “a line that shouldn’t be crossed.”
According to Mike Catalana of 13WHAM in Buffalo, the National Football League is aware of threats reportedly made against the two players and their families.
The Eagles defeated the Bills, 37-34.
