Patriots player hit with drink from stands in Pittsburgh takes high road

Earlier this season in the Buffalo Bills game at Cincinnati, a fan threw a beer at Bengals-turned-Bills receiver Brandon Tate.

Then, weeks later, a Bills fan threw a beer on the New Orleans Saints' Mark Ingram during a touchdown celebration.

Last week in Pittsburgh, New England Patriots center David Andrews was leaving the field when a cup of coffee was thrown his way. Andrews told reporters that he was actually in the process of taking off a glove to give it to a kid in the stands.

Andrews did not respond to the drink being thrown at him other than to shrug.

"It doesn't bother me after a win," he said, according to's Mike Reiss. "To me, that's part of being an athlete. There are going to be times that are up and down, and you can't retaliate. There might be times you don't like something in a game, and you can't retaliate and hurt the team, hurt yourself. It's another distraction that really doesn't matter."
