The San Francisco 49ers dominated the NY Giants on Thursday night, posting a 30-12 win. That doesn't even come close to telling the whole story of the battle, though. For starters, some of the decisions made by the refs were a total joke. On top of that, we have to talk about three 49ers players.

There were multiple dirty, cheap shots recorded by the home side. In the fourth quarter, offensive lineman Jake Brendel took NY defensive lineman DJ Davidson down to the turf, but he also twisted his arm while falling to the ground. Davidson was banged up because of it. Come on, dude.

What was Brendel even thinking here? Davidson was in a ton of pain on the ground after this happened. Davidson ended up suffering an elbow injury because of that arm twist and you already know he's pretty dang frustrated with Brendel too.

That wasn't the only eye-opening play made by the 49ers during the final 15 minutes. A personal foul on Dre Greenlaw? Color us shocked. After Darius Slayton was wrapped up and the whistle had blown, Greenlaw flew into Slayton head first and leveled him.

Slayton was livid with the 49ers playmaker and really let him have it, causing for multiple players to get involved. This was dirty from Greenlaw, no doubt about it. The play was over and Slayton was just standing there. Absolutely no need for this to happen. Oh and it may have not happened in the fourth quarter, but we're sure you haven't forgotten about the Trent Williams incident either.

That came at the end of the first half and he somehow wasn't ejected. Why? The 49ers have plenty of classy players on their team, don't get us wrong, but these three plays are infuriating to watch. The 49ers got the win last night, but these three guys took home major Ls.
