Things are getting chippy in the game NFC Divisional Round match up between the San Francisco 49ers and the Carolina Panthers. Panthers defensive back Drayton Florence shoved 49ers receiver Quinton Patton and sent him flying back wards.
Patton stumbles and tries to regain his balance before landing on his butt. This has been a pretty physical match up and it looks like it is going to remain that way for the rest of the game. The Panthers could be trying to make the 49ers receivers uncomfortable to gain an early edge mentally.
Here is Florence’s shove:

We also saw Panthers cornerback Captain Munnerlyn headbutt 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree.
