From the looks of this GIF, the San Francisco 49ers were playing with a 12th man of their own during Sunday night’s NFC Championship Game. The play came on a punt return for the 49ers. Seattle Seahawks gunner Jeremy Lane was attempting to avoid 49ers blockers when he was pushed out of bounds. As he gathered himself and looked to make his way back on the field, someone in a 49ers track suit appeared to clothesline him and knock him off his feet.
This was the same play that punt returner LaMichael James was destroyed while attempting to catch the punt.
