Trent Williams bodyslams Okay’von Wallace, each gamers ejected as tempers flare in Eagles blowout
After 56 minutes of irritating 49ers soccer, tempers flared in Sunday’s NFC championship sport.
With the sport all however over in Philadelphia’s favor, the Eagles stopped San Francisco’s Christian McCaffrey wanting a primary down on a third-down run late within the fourth quarter. A number of scrums broke out after the play, in the end resulting in ejections for each groups.
Eagles and 49ers gamers continued to bunch in a second scrum lengthy after whistles first blew. At that time, Trent Williams had apparently seen sufficient. The San Francisco 49ers left sort out grabbed Eagles security Okay’Von Wallace then slammed him to the turf. Wallace, apparently unfazed after being tossed to the bottom by a 320-pound man, popped up and instantly threw a punch.
Williams was out of vary by then, and Wallace’s punch related with the facemask of 49ers left guard Aaron Banks. Williams, in the meantime, was buying and selling blows with different Eagles gamers who did not take kindly to his aggression.
49ers gamers then poured on to the sector from the close to sideline, whereas Eagles’ bench gamers have been corralled by their teaching employees. Philadelphia nonetheless has one thing to play for.

As soon as the mud settled, officers known as Williams and Wallace for offsetting pointless roughness penalties. Each gamers have been ejected. Play ultimately resumed, and Deebo Samuel fumbled on the following play.
