49ers seahawks players scuffle leads to ejections as san francisco comes away with win

Christian McCaffrey dominated in the San Francisco 49ers’ win over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, but a fight between the two teams overshadowed the 28-16 victory.

After Seahawks quarterback Drew Lock threw his second interception, DK Metcalf was trying to bring down 49ers linebacker Fred Warner as the player pitched the ball to Dre Greenlaw. Metcalf used a WWE-style move to try to tackle Warner. The star linebacker took exception and responded with a pancake.

Metcalf then ran up to Warner and grabbed him by the face mask. Warner broke away from Metcalf. As the two were being separated, 49ers cornerback Deommodore Lenor shoved Metcalf for good measure. Both Metcalf and Lenoir were ejected from the game after a lengthy review.
