The NFC Championship had seen it’s fair share of brutal hits, but none were more brutal than the shot that NaVorro Bowman took to his knee during a goal line stand against the Seahawks late in the game. The play was nasty for the Niners for a couple of reasons, but most devastating of which was the fact that Bowman’s planted knee got rolled on and proceed the bend a way that human knees are not meant to bend.

In the heat of the moment, the scrum for the football took over the attention of the referees, but even in all the confusion, both Seahawks and 49ers players were hollering to the sideline to get someone out to help Bowman.



Given how bitter this rivalry is, you know something is severely wrong when everyone is in unison in trying to get someone some help on the field. Things were amplified when even the Seahawks friendly crowd groaned loudly and averted their eyes when the replay was shown in the stadium.
