Two players were ejected following a scuffle in the final minutes of the fourth quarter before the Philadelphia Eagles advanced past the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC championship game on Sunday.
Star 49ers left tackle Trent Williams pulled Eagles safety K’Von Wallace by the back of his shoulder pads, and forcefully pulled him to the ground.
Williams and Wallace were both ejected after tempers flared with 4:13 left in the game.
The scuffle ensued after players from both teams were unable to separate after a fourth-down play in which 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel fumbled the football, which was recovered by Eagles safety Reed Blankenship.
Several players from the 49ers sideline ran onto the field after Williams’ takedown of Wallace.
