Giants top 49ers on Eli's late TD pass
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Larry Donnell’s spectacular catch over two 49ers with 21 seconds remaining lifted the New York Giants past San Francisco 30-27 on Sunday night, capping Eli Manning’s sensational clutch performance.
Manning had a career-best 41 completions and his perfect throw to Donnell finished off an 82-yard drive with a 12-yard touchdown. It made him the winningest quarterback in team history with 102.
New York (3-2) has won three straight and leads the NFC East. San Francisco (1-4) has lost four in a row.
Carlos Hyde’s 2-yard run with 1:45 remaining gave the 49ers the lead. But on a night of huge plays and lengthy drives, Manning had the topper.
