Amidst the chaos of a loss that saw QB Blake Bortles benched and an alleged screaming match break out in the locker room, a fight in the stands at the Jacksonville Jaguars game also broke out.

In a video shared by First Coast News, a Jaguars fan can be seen sucker-punching a Houston Texans fan in the stands.

The Texans fan was knocked out and security had to be summoned to regain control of the situation.

Afterwards, the Jacksonville Jaguars released a statement announcing that the individuals involved would have their ticket privileges revoked.

"The Jacksonville Jaguars and our stadium partners are firmly committed to maintaining a safe and enjoyable experience for all who visit TIAA Bank Field, including fans of the visiting team.

"We in no way condone the behavior during Sunday’s Jaguars vs. Texans game, which included a physical altercation between fans in the east stands. Per our Fan Code of Conduct, two individuals involved in the altercation were ejected from the stadium. Each party, whether a Jaguars season ticket member or a single game purchaser, has had their ticket purchasing privileges rescinded.

"The Jaguars are grateful for the immediate response by stadium security personnel to the situation."

The Texans beat the Jaguars 20-7.
