Anti-Trump protesters in Baltimore block fans from entering Ravens game

Dozens of football fans trying to get into M&T Bank Stadium for Thursday's game between the Browns and the Ravens had to fight through protesters before they could get inside.

The group of protesters were marching through Baltimore in what police described as an "Anti-Trump" protest. There have been dozens of protests across America in the two nights since Donald Trump was elected President on Tuesday.

According to CBS Baltimore, the Thursday protest started around 6 p.m. with a couple dozen protesters. Over the next two hours, the number quickly jumped to over 600.

As the protesters made their way through Baltimore, they eventually ended up at M&T Bank Stadium, where they blocked fans from getting into the game.

There were hundreds of protesters outside the stadium before the large group eventually moved on.

Although the protesters blocked the fans from getting into the game, Baltimore police reported on Thursday night that pretty much everyone has been protesting peacefully.

"During the protest, two individuals were detained by police. No one has been charged at this time. During the protest, some of the individuals blocked roadways and sat in streets. However, the majority have been peaceful and law abiding," Baltimore police said in a statement.

The Browns are gunning for their first win. If you want to keep tabs on the game, you can head over to our CBSSports.com GameTracker by clicking here.
