But according to the Buffalo Bills, a fan went too far in his attempt to impact Sunday's contest. According to Bills coach Doug Marrone, quarterback Kyle Orton and kicker Dan Carpenter, a fan used a laser pointer to distract the team, including shining it into the eyes of holder Colton Schmidt on a missed 50-yard attempt in the third quarter. "It was shining on Colton on the hold," Carpenter said after the Bills' victory Sunday. "As far as that goes, I understand the NFL security is looking into it to see if they can figure anything out." Carpenter missed the kick, bouncing the ball off the upright, leaving the score, 14-6. Marrone confirmed he reported the issue to NFL security. The Lions released a statement late Sunday n

A Buffalo Bills player says an opposing fan shining a laser pointer in his eyes caused the kicker to miss a field goal Sunday in the game against the Detroit Lions. 

Video from the game clearly shows a green light on Colton Schmidt's face as placekicker Dan Carpenter attempts a 50-yard field goal. The kick went wild and didn't even come close to the uprights. 

Earlier in the game, quarterback Kyle Orton complained to refs after he, too, was blasted in the eyes by a green laser before a missed pass attempt at Ford Field in Detroit.

The Bills filed a formal complaint with the NFL and the league said it is investigating the incident. 

Orton was left fuming after the game, saying he was nailed by the laser at least twice.  

A fan named Marko Beslach bragged on Twitter that he was responsible for the laser light and league officials say he could be banned from NFL stadiums if is proven he is responsible.

'Got Kyle Orton complained to the ref when I got him with the laser,' Beslach tweeted Sunday.

He has since deleted his entire Twitter account.

Laser pointers are banned in NFL stadiums and are capable of causing permanent damage if they are shined directly in the eyes. 

Small, powerful laser pointers are widely available for less than $50 and can focus a beam of light up to 300 yards away. 

Despite the interference, the Bills managed to power their way through the game and win.

Carpenter got sweet revenge when he kicked a 58-yard field goal to win the game, 17-14.
