The San Francisco 49ers have now played the New York Giants three times in less than a year. The two teams are very familiar with each other, and the games have all been intense physical battles.

Although the 49ers beat the Giants in the regular season last year, the Giants got the last laugh, as they vanquished the 49ers in the NFC championship game. That victory by the Giants earned them a trip to the Super Bowl, where they ultimately defeated the New England Patriots for the world championship.

The 49ers felt they should have been there, and it's Super Bowl or bust for this year's team. In 2011, it took two special teams blunders by Kyle Williams to eventually give the Giants the win in overtime.

The 49ers were out to rinse some of that bitter taste from their mouths and show the football world that last year's success was no fluke. Unfortunately, the 49ers were outplayed in every phase of the game and fell to the Giants, 26-3.

Let's take a closer look at some of the key 49ers who were "winners or losers" in today's contest.
