Sunday was just your average day at a Buffalo Wild Wings when a bunch of opposing football fans began beating the crap out of each other.

A group of rival football fans exploded into a ridiculous brawl outside the Buffalo Wild Wings in Downey, and the battle was caught by bystander Dave Amaro, who posted a video of it to Facebook.

As Amaro explains it in his post, the trouble began with some wild San Francisco 49ers fans who wanted to beat up a man for his grave crime of being a Pittsburgh Steelers fan. The Steelers fan shunned their hostile behavior and walked away. However, when the 49ers went outside, things got real.

You can see a number of men in New York Giants jerseys beating what appears to be the 49ers fans, while other bystanders try to calm them down. Amaro said the men bearing the brunt of the attack were the 49ers fans who started the whole thing. At one point, it looks like one of them got kicked in the face.

And if that's the case, then it was the second loss for those guys that day: the Steelers trounced the 49ers 43 - 18.

But wait, that's not all: on Friday, a group of 49ers fans brawled with a Vikings fan outside of Levi stadium in Santa Clara, prompting the City Council to consider banning alcohol sales during 49ers games.

Downey police said that the Buffalo Wild Wings brawlers had fled by the time they arrived, though the investigation is ongoing, according to ABC 7. No injuries were reported.
