Just because fans aren't able to be in attendance doesn't mean they won't overstep their boundaries.
The NFL season is heating up with games coming down to the wire. After heading the Colts and Packers headed in overtime, Green Bay receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling fumbled a pass from Aaron Rodgers while fighting for a first down.
Ths set up a 34-31 victory for the Colts. Following this mistake, the Packers' faithful bombarded Valdes-Scantling with unnecessary backlash.
"Death threats over a football game? Jesus you people need help. It’s actually sick. I’m good," Valdes-Scantling tweeted. "My team got my back."

During this time his ball security has been immaculate. In fact, this fumble was the first turnover of his career.
