CLEVELAND– The NFL Players Association says it contacted league security after a Browns fan threw beer on Titans players during Cleveland’s 43-13 loss.
Tennessee cornerback Malcolm Butler intercepted Baker Mayfield and returned it for a touchdown late in the game on Sunday. Then, Butler jumped into the stands to celebrate with a Titans fan and that’s when a Browns fan splashed his beer on the players.
Titans cornerback Logan Ryan took to Twitter to complain about the actions.

Retired Browns lineman Joe Thomas also weighed in on Twitter, saying jumping into the stands as the visiting team is against NFL rules.
Violation of league rules to jump into the stands as the visiting team: you should expect beer dumped on you every time (nobody would waste #73Kolsch by @GLBC_Cleveland, so expect piss water beer at that) https://t.co/2nH4OI6EsD
