The foul, which was a stupidly late dumping of Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith that was 100 percent a penalty, happened in front of Philly's bench, The Eagles were understandably upset at Greenlaw, and the latter for some bizarre reason put his hands on... the Eagles' security officer.
Yes, the security officer.
Greenlaw was rightfully ejected, and the Eagles took full advantage to score a touchdown and some much-needed momentum after San Francisco put up 21 unanswered points. The end result was the game was back to a single score, and the 49ers won't be able to have Greenlaw on the field.
Luckily, wide receiver Deebo Samuel produced some magic to halt the momentum and make it 28-13 to put a cushion back on the scoreboard.
Regardless of what someone might think about the Eagles, the dumping of Smith when he was out of bounds and the subsequent skirmish were horrific lapses of judgement from Greenlaw. The linebacker is extremely talented, but it isn't the first time he's hit someone late and drawn a personal foul.
The game has now gone up a level, as the 49ers try to hold on and gain revenge for their loss in the NFC Championship last year, while also chasing the No. 1 seed in the NFC that the Eagles currently possess.
