49ers' Anquan Boldin shoves Panthers S Quintin Mikell while on ground (GIF)


The San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers are duking it out in the NFC Divisional Round. With the score at 7-6 in the first half, it already looks like it will be a higher scoring affair than the Panthers 10-9 win at Candlestick Park earlier this year.

It has been a chippy match up between these two teams, thought he Panthers secondary has really been the ones playing the role of the bullies. Panthers defensive back Captain Munnerlyn head butted 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree. Then Panthers defensiveback Drayton Florence shoved, and sent flying, a 49ers receiver.

49ers receiver Anquan Boldin is fighting back though. After winding up on the ground with Panthers strong safety Quintin Mikell, Boldin gave him a little shove as he got up.
