Eli couldn’t convert a fourth down for the third straight time–and that sealed the Giants fate. With 2:00 to go, Eli’s third, fourth down attempt was batted down at the line of scrimmage, sealing the win for the Niners.

The San Francisco 49ers showed America (without Frank Gore) that they are for real with a 27-20 against the Giants. Playing their second straight game without Ahmad Bradshaw, Brandon Jacobs and DJ Ware combined for 89 yards on the ground. Eli threw two beautiful touchdown passes to Hakeem Nicks and Mario Manningham. Eli did throw a key interception that turned into seven San Francisco points.

The Giants are still sit atop the NFC East with a 6-3 record, but are starting to feel a little heat by the 5-4 Dallas Cowboys. The Giants and Cowboys haven’t played yet, but I expect a hard fought contest.

The Giants will host the stumbling Philadelphia Eagles next Sunday night at Metlife Stadium. The Giants can put the 3-6 Eagles away for good next weekend.
