Trent Williams of the San Francisco 49ers and K’Von Wallace of the Philadelphia Eagles were both ejected from the NFC Championship game at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday.
The 49ers were unable to cope against a tough Eagles attack, especially when quarterback Brock Purdy suffered a shoulder injury.
It began with Eagles safety K’Von Wallace yelling at some 49ers players while standing nose-to-nose with others. Williams was clearly frustrated, and when a fight started, he took it out on Wallace by smashing him to the ground.
Wallace continued and the two began throwing punches. The incident happened late in the fourth quarter when the Eagles were winning 31-7.

Both benches rushed to the center of the field as referees threw their flags and tried to separate the players. Meanwhile, Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts remained still and saw the chaos.
The Eagles’ offense appeared to be in sync on Sunday, capitalizing on inopportune mistakes by the 49ers and employing a balanced approach, as it has all year.
Jalen Hurts, the third-year quarterback who thrived in his second full season as a starter, had just 121 passing yards, but he extended plays with his legs, running for 39 yards and a score.
However, The Eagles won the game, and they have been one of the most complete teams in the league this season, judging from their performance on Sunday. With the victory, they will face either Kansas City or Cincinnati in their first Super Bowl since winning the championship in 2017.
