Manning’s TD pass with 0:21 left lifts Giants past 49ers
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — 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.
