A BRAWL erupted in the stands during the early December matchup between two bitter AFC North rivals, the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears.
In a recent video, a fan wearing a Bears hat threw another man down the steps at Soldier Field during the December 4th visitors’ win.
Aaron Rodgers and his Packers bounced from behind in the fourth quarter of the duel, keeping their tenuous playoff hopes alive.
A late touchdown by rookie Christian Watson and Green Bay’s subsequent two-point conversion gave the Packers a 28-19 lead.
Cornerback Keisean Nixon then intercepted Justin Fields’ pass to end Chicago’s comeback attempt with just 0:44 left on the clock.
Emotions were running high both on and off the field as a newly emerged video shows two NFL fans getting into an argument during the game.
A man in a blue sweatshirt and Bears hat and another in a green Packers top and Bears scarf stand in one of the upstairs sections of Soldier Field.
The former stood on the stadium’s concrete steps, while the latter was near his seat.
The man in the hat then reached over a metal barrier and slipped his arm around the other fan’s neck.
After a brief scuffle, the match visitor in blue managed to pull the scarf-wearing fan away from the row of seats and fall down the stairs.
After landing a few rows down, the latter then came back up to continue arguing with the other man – where the video ends.
The Bears were in disastrous form in the weeks leading up to the incident, posting five straight losses.
And after the matchup with Green Bay, they extended their losing streak to seven games, falling 3-11 in the season with a five-point loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Dec. 18.
