49ers move to 8-1 after taking down the Giants 27-20

Justin Smith batted down Eli Manning‘s pass in the waning seconds, stopping the New York Giants and giving the San Francisco 49ersa 27-20 victory Sunday in a matchup of NFC division leaders.

With the Giants (6-3) trailing, Manning completed two long fourth-down passes and marched his team to the red zone with 1:53 to go. Unlike New York’s rally last week at New England, Smith made a leaping right-handed smack of the ball on fourth-and-2 from the 10.

The 49ers (8-1) won their seventh in a row and didn’t rely on Frank Gore, whose franchise-record streak of five consecutive games with 100 rushing yards ended with a knee injury.
