There’s little doubt that the Giants will be able to bounce back from their first loss of the season. Eli Manning and crew flat out didn’t play well and should have a much better showing this week against a 49ers team that they should drill at home. At times this season, San Francisco has played well. But they haven’t been able to match their solid first half starts and continue to under perform in the second half of games. Expect the G-Men to get back on track this week and for not only Manning to perform better, but for New York’s defense to rise to the challenge again after they allowed Derek Anderson to shred them last week in Cleveland. We predict the Giants over the 49ers 38-17.
