DETROIT (CBS DETROIT) - After the Detroit Lions collapsed against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, allowing 28 points in the fourth quarter, an even uglier scenario apparently unfolded off the field.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, a 33-year-old Lions fan was walking out of the game, on his way to take a train home, when he said a half-dozen Eagles fans yelled at him, threw items at him and beat him until he lost consciousness.

Monday the Lions fan said he received treatment at a hospital for a concussion and minor injuries, and doctors also checked him for internal injuries after he urinated blood.

Capt. Laurence Nodiff, commander of South Detectives, told the Inquirer that the police are looking to see if video surveillance of the area captured the beating.

A Michigan native who has lived in Philadelphia for two years, the Lions fan’s Barry Sanders jersey and team hat were apparently what caused the group of fans in Eagles apparel to target him. Philadelphia fans also threw snowballs and other items at the Lions fan all throughout the game.
