Watch: Nasty fight breaks out among Steelers fans at Heinz Field

Fans get physical in the stands at Heinz Field during the Steelers-Chargers Sunday Night Football game.

The Pittsburgh Steelers weren’t the only ones who got smacked in the mouth last night.

Seems like losing a 16-point lead can put anyone in a foul mood. But imagine if you had paid good money to suffer through it live at Heinz Field.

A video posted to social media Sunday night showed two men β€” both seemingly Steelers fans β€” getting into a pretty nasty fight.

Luckily for interested fans, @katebrendel was a few rows back with her phone.

The video picks up just before one guy delivers a nasty headbutt on his opponent, sending him straight down. Then, a woman who appears to be with the man down throws a punch.

Beer gets spilled, more punches are thrown as the surrounding fans attempt to bring the peace.

At the end of the video, the man who got headbutted is escorted from the stands. According to @katebrendel, the headbutt-er was ejected as well.

A Pittsburgh police spokesman said they are aware of the incident and are currently investigating. No arrests or citations have been made.

As usual, Twitter has some interesting reactions to the fight.
