CLEVELAND (AP) -- Standing near midfield, players and officials watched as enraged Browns fans rained beer bottles, cups and debris down on them.Then the Jacksonville Jaguars ran -- scared.
Kyle Brady and the Jaguars had to dodge beer cups and other debris from Cleveland fans in the last minute of Sunday's game.
Probably make the right call right away; don't wait until the play's over to make the call. If the officials make the call at the proper time, none of this would have happened. The call was made after the spike play, and it seemed that's when fans got irate.
But fans are never justified acting like this -- there's never justification for throwing objects with the intent of injuring officials or players.
That's totally wrong, and I believe you'll see the Browns do something to try to curb this in the future.
