The San Francisco 49ers are set to defeat the Carolina Panthers to advance to the NFC Championship game. Things have been chippy with some head butts and shoving after plays.
49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton was blocking Panthers defensive back Josh Thomas, who eventually threw Patton to the ground. Then while they were on the ground, Thomas threw a swing at Patton. Fortunately he missed and it looked like Patton didn’t even notice.
The Panthers are clearly frustrated to see their season come to an end, but this isn’t any way to handle it.
