Washington fans appear to turn on each other in loss to Eagles

Things didn’t go as planned for Washington in their season opener and fans took their aggression out on each other in the stands.

A fan shared a video on Instagram Sunday showing what appears to be two Washington supporters going at it in the bleachers.

One man wearing a grey shirt lands two heavy punches on another in the video before other people in the section jump in to separate the two. The fan looked like he was still trying to stomp on the other man as the fight was being broken up.

Normally in a division rivalry game you’d expect Eagles and Washington fans to be going at one another, but that wasn’t the case at FedEx Field Sunday. The fan who filmed the video confirmed the fight was between Washington supporters and not a Philadelphia fan.

Washington’s season got off to a horrible start Sunday and this probably fueled frustrations in the stadium.

The Eagles won 30-17 in a game that was very sloppy for Washington. The team turned the ball over four times and was just 3-for-11 on third down.

They’ll look to turn things around against the Rams next week when they travel to Los Angeles.
