Watch: Seahawks DL Quinton Jefferson Nearly Entered Stands To Fight Fans Who Threw Drinks At Him

Seahawks DL Quinton Jefferson confronts fan.

The end of the Seahawks-Jaguars game was insanely ugly.

First, Seattle Seahawks defensive lineman Michael Bennett rolled into Jacksonville center Brandon Linder's knees while the Jaguars were kneeling out the clock.

A skirmish ensued, and Seattle's Sheldon Richardson was ejected for throwing a punch.

You can check that out below.

On the next play, Seattle defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson was also ejected, and was jeered by fans as he left the field. Jefferson took exception when some fans tossed objects at him, and when one tossed a bottle at the second-year pro, it got ugly. Jefferson tried to run into the stands and fight, which would have been a bad outcome for all parties.

Bennett is going to face discipline for what he did to Linder, while Jefferson will be disciplined for his altercation with fans.

However, the people who threw things at Jefferson, endangering his safety and those around him, need to be severely reprimanded as well.
