A vicious collision between San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson and fellow defensive back Tarell Brown during the NFC Championship game against the New York Giants left Brown sprawled out in the middle of the field before he was assisted off the field.


Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw the ball in the direction of his wide-out Hakeem Nicks when the two 49ers players both dove towards the errant pass and met each other helmet-to-chest.

Goldson rolled over the prone Brown— who was lying on his back motionless on the ground.

A medical team surrounded Brown as Goldson nervously watched his teammate from the sidelines.  Brown sat up after a few minutes, refused the services of a stretcher and was assisted off the field by two men.  He later walked unassisted to the locker room for observation.

The Giants should consider themselves lucky because it looked like an easy INT if the two players didn't crash into each other.

The nasty smash-up occurred with a minute left in the 3rd quarter with the 49ers leading, 14-10, in the defensive tug-of-war.
