    An altercation at M&T Bankd Stadium in Baltimore ended with a man in critical condition and two others behind bars. On Sunday afternoon at the stadium, 55-year-old Joseph Bauer got into an argument with a group of Raiders fans near a concession stand. Bauer was knocked to the ground and his head hit the pavement, knocking him unconscious.

    He is now in the hospital with a serious head injury – a subdural hematoma, causing blood to pool on the brain. Reportedly, Bauer has only a 30 percent chance of survival.

    Two men were arrested and charged with first- and second- degree assault on Monday. The duo were identified as 30-year-old Scott Smith of Mt. Vernon, NY and 31-year-old Andrew Nappi of Eastchester, NY.

    The Ravens organization issued a statement about the incident: “Our sympathies and prayers go out to Mr. Joseph Bauer, his wife Sharon and the rest of his family. We have reached out to the family and have received a report on Mr. Bauer’s condition.

    “We are deeply concerned about this assault and are learning as much as we can about it. Safety for our fans is a top priority. Confrontational and inflammatory behavior is never tolerated and is unacceptable at Ravens home games.”

    Coach Harbaugh also released a statement:
