The mother of an eight-year-old New York Jets fan reportedly claimed that her son, who was wearing a Jets jersey, was attacked and tackled by a drunken Cleveland Browns fan while leaving Cleveland Browns Stadium following New York's 26-20 overtime victory.

"As he was walking and holding my son's hand, a guy from behind tackled him," she reportedly said. "A drunken Browns fan tackled him and pulled him out of his dad's hand. He was on the ground crying."

The incident was said to have occurred outside of the stadium. The mother also said her son's ankle was scraped and bruised.

According to the report, Browns spokesman Neil Gulkis said that the organization is looking into the altercation and called it "unfortunate and disappointing."
