Manning silences critics to spark Giants comeback

Manning silences critics to spark Giants comeback

"No, we don't do that if we want to win football games".

After the game, however, Mullens was far more upset by a pass on the previous possession.

Mullens, who made his National Football League debut in last week's 34-3 win over the Oakland Raiders, completed 27 of his 39 passes for 250 yards and one touchdown.

His first interception setup the Giants first touchdown of the game as he caught a pass that was deflected by Janoris Jenkins, and ran it back to the 49ers 12-yard line.

"Any time a player puts a winning performance on the field, he should feel good about it at least for a day or so", Shurmur said.

Robbie Gould gave the 49ers a 23-20 lead with 2:46 remaining on a 30-yard field goal and Manning had the ball and a chance to end this losing madness.

Still, it appeared Mullens and the rest of the offense might have done enough.

Matt Breida had 17 carries for 101 yards and a touchdown. "It's just important that they get touches". The biggest play in the game-winning drive was a 31-yard hookup with tight end Evan Engram.

"It's just one of those things that comes with time", cornerback Richard Sherman said.

Manning saw his team down by double digits in the second half, but he was never fazed, and never showed signs of letting up. The Giants proved a much feistier challenge, despite, like the Raiders, entering the game with just one win. Those sacks have amounted to 231 lost yards, nearly half as many as running back Saquon Barkley's total rushing yards (519).

Their 11-play, 60-yard drive was highlighted by Mullens.

"Nothing has changed about Nick Mullens", McGlinchey said. He had a touchdown get into the last guy in his progression. The two-time Super Bowl MVP answered the critics.

Manning finished with three touchdowns and 188 yards from 19 completions as the Giants improved to 2-7 in the NFC East. San Francisco fell to 2-8 and remain at the bottom of the NFC West.

His success had something to do with a lack of pressure.

And not only that, he can lead his team back from a deficit to win games late, which is exactly what he did in the 27-23 win at Levi's Stadium. "Like I told them I said, the ones that you have to fight the hardest for are the ones that should feel the best". He's got the whole week to kind of let it saturate, learn the play calls, spit them out easier, gets to throw some full-speed balls to all our players, where last week there wasn't one full-speed rep. "He's a starting-caliber player and that's what we'll do moving forward".
