(CNN) — Three people were injured in falls at two separate NFL games on Sunday, officials said.

A 48-year-old man suffered severe head injuries after falling down steps at the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore during the Ravens game against the New York Jets, Baltimore fire spokesman Ian Brennan said.

In a second incident, two people were injured at the Coliseum in Oakland, California, where the Raiders took on the Tennessee Titans. A woman fell roughly 50 feet from the third deck of the coliseum, according to Oakland Fire Battalion Chief Eleanor Bolin-Chew. A man on the second level tried to catch her, suffering non-life-threatening injuries. The condition of the woman, who had a large gash on her forehead, was not immediately known, Bolin-Chew said.
