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.
