Marquez Valdes-Scantling says he received death threats over his costly fumble in overtime against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.

Valdes-Scantling’s Green Bay Packers got the ball to start overtime with the game tied at 31. On the Packers’ second play, Valdes-Scantling lost a fumble that effectively cost his team the game.

The Colts got great field position and were able to kick a 39-yard field goal to win the game.

Valdes-Scantling said on Twitter after the game that he received death threats. He said those who sent threats were “sick” and “need help.”

Valdes-Scantling received support from his team despite his mistake. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers came to his defense. So did head coach Matt LaFleur.

The Packers are now 7-3 after the loss and still in good shape for the playoffs, but they can’t afford many more mistakes like that.
