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.”
Sources tell us that the NFL and Stadium security reps were told about threats made by the fan towards the Bills players.
The fan remained in that spot for the rest of the game.

Viewer react to Bills Players Confronted Life Threatening Threats:
I remember going to the Raiders Vs Jets playoffs game at the Coliseum and watching warm ups from the Other Black Hole. Man those were some crazy taunting coming from some raider fans as well as some racial slurs.
Thankfully the raiders won but I’ll never forget that experience as a young fan
Remember the old saying…”sticks and stones….”
Be the bigger person, and ignore it…Don’t go put your hands on someone because they got under your skin.

Eagle fans are the worst. They destroy their city if they win or lose a big game. Plus don’t forget that they threw beer bottles at Santa back in the day. Also they cheered when Michael Irvin had his career ending injury. Some dude makes a life threatening comment (allegedly) to a few players and so the players goes towards the person that threatened their life (allegedly). People like to get comfortable mouthing off thinking the other person won’t or can’t do anything about it. Like a little chihuahua yapping off at the dog behind a locked gate. But the second the gate opens they run away.
