A witness told Channel's Rachel Stockman the fight started after a 49ers fan passed by an upset Falcons fan.

They exchanged words and at some point, the verbal altercation turned violent.

The Falcons fan then punched the 49ers fan. The 49ers fan pulled out a knife and somehow got cut in the throat area, the witness said.

The injured man is being transported to a hospital.

The condition of the man whose knife was turned against him is unknown; Fox 5 Atlanta is saying his "throat was slit." No one has reported whether the fans attended the game or were just outside the Georgia Dome. We'll update as more information becomes available.
