A FedEx Field railing completely collapsed and fans fell in a heap near Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, as he walked off the field after a 20-16 victory over the Washington Football Team on Sunday.
Hurts was about to leave the field via the visiting team’s exit tunnel and was being met by Eagles fans who reached over the railing to congratulate Hurts on the victory. That was more than enough to make that railing fail. It was a scary looking scene which could have ended much worse than it did.
In true FedEx Field fashion, that railing would be fixed with zip ties.
“I’m just happy everybody is safe from it,” Hurts said. “That’s crazy stuff right there. That was a real dangerous situation. I’m just so happy everybody bounced back from it, it seemed like. Passionate Eagles fans. I love it.”
Philadelphia improved to 9-7 with the win on Sunday, while Washington dropped to 6-10 with the loss.
