Something stinks at FedEx Field, and it's not the Washington Football Team.

A video credited to Instagram account "tommyob5" surfaced on social media on Sunday, showing a burst pipe at the Washington-Chargers game as it spilled its contents onto unfortunate fans below. While it's uncertain exactly what was in the pipe, fans shown on the video believe it was raw sewage.

The FedEx Field Twitter account later responded to the incident, saying the pipe contained rain water and had since stopped spilling its contents. The account also said the fans in the effected area had been moved to suites.
