SANTA CLARA Jalen Hurd San Francisco 49ers Jersey , Calif. (AP) — Eli Manning showed he still has what it takes to lead the kind of game-winning drive that earned him two Super Bowl MVP awards.Manning capped a 75-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard with 53 seconds left and the New York Giants snapped a five-game losing streak by beating the San Francisco 49ers 27-23 on Monday night.“It doesn’t get old,” said Manning, whose 36 game-winning drives are the third most in the NFL since he entered the league in 2004. “It’s fun. It’s fun playing in those games and having a two-minute drive to win it. Those are the situations you want to be in. You want to have a chance.”The Giants (2-7) have failed to capitalize on those late-game situations this season, losing five games by seven or fewer points as part of a disappointing stretch that has put the 37-year-old Manning’s status as starting quarterback in question.But Manning delivered against the 49ers (2-8) to give New York a much-needed win.“That’s what Eli is really good at, engineering those come-from-behind drives,” coach Pat Shurmur said. “That was terrific. He hung in there and made some really good throws and got us into the end zone. That’s the sign of a good quarterback.”Manning threw two TD passes to Odell Beckham Jr. and then engineered the late game-winning drive with help from a pair of third-down penalties against Malcolm Smith and Ahkello Witherspoon.Saquon Barkley then had a 23-yard catch to get the ball into the red zone and Manning connected with Shepard on third down to give the Giants the win.“I just saw man-to-man coverage,” Shepard said. “That’s something we’ve been practicing. I was able to capture the outside edge and Eli put the ball in a perfect place.”Matt Breida ran for 101 yards and scored two touchdowns for the 49ers (2-8), who were unable to win consecutive games under third-string quarterback Nick Mullens. Breida’s 23-yard run helped set up a 30-yard field goal by Robbie Gould that gave the Niners a 23-20 lead with 2:46 to play.But the 49ers allowed the go-ahead score and couldn’t pull it out at the end as Mullens’ pass from the Giants 21 sailed out of the end zone on the final play.“Those are the plays you have to make to finish the game,” Mullens said. “That was a moment of truth, and I didn’t get the job done. I have to play better in those moments of truth. We all have to play better.”Mullens wasn’t nearly as sharp as he was in his NFL debut against the Raiders on Nov. 1 when he joined Hall of Famers Jim Kelly and Fran Tarkenton as the only players with at least 250 yards passing, three touchdown passes and no interceptions in the first career game.Mullens threw for 250 yards and had an 11-yard TD pass to Breida that made it 20-10 early in the third quarter. But Mullens also threw two interceptions with the first setting up a 10-yard TD pass from Manning to Beckham .Those two connected again on a 20-yard score in the third quarter as New York rallied from 10 points down to tie the game in the second half.HARD HITNiners receiver Marquise Goodwin was hit in the helmet by Alec Ogletree on a catch late in the third quarter and briefly left the game. On his first play back in to start the fourth quarter, a pass from Mullens deflected off Goodwin’s hands for the second interception of the game by B.J. Goodson . Goodwin was slow to get up after that play and went back into the medical tent for observation. Goodwin returned to the game later in the fourth quarter.BAD REACTIONWitherspoon got beat on Beckham’s second TD catch and immediately threw his hands up in disgust because he didn’t get the safety help he expected from Antone Exum. Teammate Richard Sherman and coaches talked to Witherspoon on the sideline to tell him not to show up a teammate.“Man up. Don’t put that on tape,” coach Kyle Shanahan said. “We’ll deal with that when we come in.”CENTURY MARKBarkley rans for 67 yards and added 33 receiving to join Eric Dickerson as the only players since the merger to gain at least 100 yards from scrimmage in eight of their first nine career games.MISSED OPPORTUNITYThe Giants entered the game converting just 40 percent of their red zone trips into TDs. They missed a golden opportunity for one late in the first half. On a third down from the 3, the 49ers left Beckham unguarded in the slot but Manning stuck with a run play to Barkley that gained only 1 yard. New York settled for a field goal that tied the game at 10.PLAYING FOR PARADISENiners GM John Lynch welcomed the high school football team from Paradise, a town destroyed by the wildfires in Butte County, about 175 miles north. Players and cheerleaders from the school were on the field for the national anthem. The Niners raised more than $100,000 to support relief and recovery efforts.The air quality for the game was at an unhealthy level because of the fires. The Air Quality Index was at 161 at kickoff, which is in the unhealthy zone Weston Richburg Jersey , and smoke could be smelled throughout the stadium. The NFL had monitored the situation but the AQI never got near 200, the level where the game would have needed to be moved.UP NEXTGiants: Host Tampa Bay on Sunday.49ers: Visit Tampa Bay on Nov. 25. The Cardinals hold the keys to the kingdom for the time being. Arizona is picking No. 1 overall and they have a host of options to consider. Ohio State edge rusher Nick Bosa is viewed by many as the best prospect available. On the other hand, Quinnen Williams is climbing media and fan draft boards, and some think Bosa is not necessarily the best fit for Arizona’s changing defensive scheme. And of course, they also could trade the pick away to a team looking to draft a quarterback, or one of the non-QB prospects.The 49ers are left to watch and wonder what the Cardinals will have in mind. Quarterbacks Dwayne Haskins and Kyler Murray are two wild cards for now. If a team decides they can’t live without one of them, they could convince themselves they need to move up to one of the top handful of picks to ensure they get the quarterback. The first three teams in the 2019 NFL Draft (Cardinals, 49ers, Jets) are not picking quarterbacks. After that, nothing is certain. The Raiders probably will not spend the No. 4 pick on a quarterback, but all it takes is one other team thinking it might happen to convince them to deal up into the top three.My guess is in the end the Cardinals do not trade down. I can’t say for certain if Bosa or Williams ends up the pick for them, but I feel pretty comfortable saying it will be one of those two. They could surprise us, but those seem like the most likely results when April 25th arrives.ESPN’s Nick Wagoner chatted with 11 scouts and other personnel types around the NFL to get a handle on what league insiders think the Cardinals will do with the pick. Most believed if a trade was possible, the Cardinals would do that so they could add draft picks, but most also did not think a deal would ultimately get done. Three people predicted a deal would happen and the Cardinals would move out of the No. 1 pick. Six people predicted they would end up drafting Bosa, and the final two thought Williams would be the pick. What do you expect to happen when the No. 1 pick is on the clock?
