The Cincinnati Bengals confirmed the report Sunday night.

"We are aware that there was a medical incident during the game," Bengals director of business development Bob Bedinghaus said Sunday evening. "It's our understanding upon arriving a Christ Hospital he was pronounced dead. Police were there. Police looked into everything. From what I heard it was some sort of medical issue that he suffered."

The Enquirer reported that paramedic and police "responded to the incident a little after 3 p.m" where they attempted to revive him. The Associated Press adds that the fan collapsed in one of the Paul Brown Stadium restrooms. His identity is being withheld until his family is notified.
