San Francisco 49ers vs. New York Giants: Live Score, Highlights and Analysis
49ers trampled by the Giants 26-3
In Sunday's Week 6 showdown in the Bay, the visiting New York Giants emerged the victor. Both teams moved to 4-2 records after today's game. The Giants record got a boost and the Niners fell, tying with NFC West rival Seattle Seahawks.
This NFC Championship rematch was hardly a rematch. The Giants handled the 49ers in all three phases of the game. San Francisco played a mistake-riddled brand of football, that included Alex Smith throwing an uncharacteristic trio of interceptions.
The 49ers did not even score a touchdown versus Big Blue. The Giants front finally came alive this season, coming up with a handful of sacks against the Niners. This is a very demoralizing loss for the 49ers but the first real statement game for the Giants this season.
Regardless of how this ended, neither of these teams would be surprised to see one another in the post-season.

The Giants have kneeled in the victory formation, running the rest of the clock out. This one is over.
Frank Gore: 8 carries, 36 yards. The 49ers got away from the run, just like they did in the NFC championship game.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) October 14, 2012
Colin Kaepernick in...
And is firing strikes, helping the 49ers get downfield. One might be wondering at this point, "Why didn't the 49ers put him in earlier?"
Lawrence Tynes field goal...
Is useless but on the stats sheet nonetheless. The Giants extended their lead to 23-points, leading the 49ers 26-3 with a minute left in the game.
2 Minute Warning...
The Giants maintain their 23-3 lead with two minutes left in the game. New York has the ball and San Francisco is out of timeouts. This game has been over for quite some time. It will officially come to an end here in a few minutes.
This will be an incredibly tough pill for the 49ers to swallow.
How much time do you have?

The 49ers had stopped the Giants and were going to hold them to a field goal. But an offsides call of Tarell Brown gave the Giants a fresh set of downs. The Giants will run it here to try and close out the game.
Bradshaw first 100 yard rusher vs 49ers at home in the last 23 games. Impressive by the World Champs— mark schlereth (@markschlereth) October 14, 2012
49ers top skill players are no-shows...
Patrick Willis, Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree...
These guys have not been factors today for the 49ers and it's put them on the losing end of this battle. San Francisco has not been able to get any production out of them, and not one of them has something highlight worthy today.
The Giants were able to limit three crucial figures for the 49ers. It's probably what gave them an edge in this game.
Couldn't seem more bias in this game. His tone of voice during the play-calling has been genuine excitement for the Giants plays and shots here and there at the 49ers. Granted, San Francisco is playing like garbage, but the commentating should be subjective.
A lifeless 49ers team continues to take the field...
Alex Smith has been sacked four times -- 49ers lacking energy in almost all phases, especially offense— Cam Inman (@CamInman) October 14, 2012

And the 49ers can't convert third and six...
It brings up 4th down and forces the Niners to punt the ball back to New York. It's getting harder and harder to point out the 49ers flaws in different ways because they keep repeating them over and over. San Francisco couldn't do anything right today.
11:16 remaining in the 4th quarter...
There is no upbeat chatter in the social media wire about this game. There is no talk about a comeback because it seems beyond the 49ers at this point. The reality is, San Francisco might not score a touchdown for the rest of the game.
The talk already seems to be looking toward next week.
Ahmad Bradshaw needs 14 more yards to reach 100. no running back has reached that mark against the 49ers so far.— Matt Barrows (@mattbarrows) October 14, 2012

And the 49ers look poor in all aspects. Ahmad Bradshaw has been running through the 49ers defense which couldn't be more uncharacteristic of this team. The Niners pride themselves on stopping the run but they are just getting embarrassed at home today.
In all three phases, San Francisco has been beat today.

Ug-ly performance for the 49ers today. Giants came in here and made a statement.— Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) October 14, 2012
The 49ers offensive game plan...
To use two quarterbacks instead of one finally seemed to backfire. Kaepernick lost yards more than a few times and put Alex Smith in bad situations when he would sub back in. This back-and-forth has not been working, but the Niners look just about out of options.
49ers being very nice to Giants. They keep killing their own momentum by changing QBsevery few plays.— Dan Graziano (@espn_nfceast) October 14, 2012
