A man was injured in a fight outside the Georgia Dome and taken to nearby Grady Hospital following Atlanta's loss to San Francisco in the NFC title game.
 
   Georgia Dome spokesman Jason Kirksey emailed a statement to The Associated Press Sunday saying an altercation occurred in a parking lot outside the dome at 6:40 p.m.
 
   The 35-year-old's name was not released. The statement says he is in stable condition and that it is unclear "if anyone involved in the altercation attended the game." Georgia Dome and Atlanta police "are investigating the incident."
 
   WSB-TV reported a Falcons fan and a 49ers fan argued after game and the Atlanta  fan punched San Francisco fan, who pulled out a knife. They reported one of the two men was stabbed in the neck.
