The San Francisco 49ers are taking on the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 13. It is a huge matchup with playoff implications, and emotions are running high on both sides. After a play in the third quarter, 49ers linebacker Dre Greenlaw exchanged words with a Philadelphia security guard, Dom DiSandro.
Greenlaw tackled an Eagles player out of bounds, and DiSandro was on the sideline. The two players started jawing at each other and DiSandro stepped between the two. Greenlaw didn’t take kindly to it and seemed to reach out and make slight contact with DiSandro. He started pointing fingers and yelling at Greenlaw, and both were ejected.
While this situation may seem chaotic and somewhat funny from the outside, the loss of Greenlaw is big for the 49ers. He was the team’s leading tackler to that point in the game with seven.
San Francisco is up 28-13 with four minutes to go in the third quarter.
