Tom Coughlin says nobody is giving the Giants a chance. They can definitely win this game and should play well again in Candlestick. But I think the Niners will squeeze this one out.
|49ERS 20, GIANTS 16
I was on the field for the final 10 minutes of the NFC title game, and I've never seen more vicious hitting on both sides. Last year's loser is home and has more motivation.
|49ERS 17, GIANTS 14
This time, Kyle Williams won't fumble any punts and the 49ers will avenge their loss in the NFC Championship Game.
|49ERS 27, GIANTS 24
Another epic battle that could go either way -- I'll give San Fran the edge, because of home field and the revenge factor.
|49ERS 28, GIANTS 24
The Giants are solid, but beating the 49ers in San Francisco will prove to be a difficult task.
|GIANTS 26, 49ERS 24
The Giants pass rush will finally show up. Alex Smith's injured finger will leads to a couple of rare SF turnovers and Manning will shine in 'Frisco again.
|49ERS 21, GIANTS 17
The San Francisco defense will slow down Eli Manning.
|49ERS 24, GIANTS 17
The 49er offense will be too much for Jint D which won't be able to be to shut down Alex Smith and the SF D will be just enough to slow down Manning.
|GIANTS 27, 49ERS 23
This is a statement game for the G-men. The Giants' statement? We can repeat.
|49ERS 31, GIANTS 20
The Niners are the better team this time around. The Giants won't get the calls or turnovers they generated in January. Manning will keep it close.
|GIANTS 24, 49ERS 20
Tom Coughlin can't say I didn't believe in them. The D-line will get going and Manning's air strikes will continue.
