Giants Vs. 49ers, 2012 NFC Championship Game: Second San Fran Sack Stops Giants

After scoring their first touchdown of the day in the 2012 NFC Championshipnship Game, the New York Giants reverted to earlier, sloppier form. And a lack of protection on a short third down made a sack of Eli Manning possible for the San Francisco 49ers.

Ray McDonald and Navarro Bowman made their way past the Giants' offensive line for the Niners' second sack of the day, stopping New York and forcing a punt late in the second quarter that gave San Francisco the ball with enough time to score points before the end of the first half.

Manning has thrown for 125 yards and a touchdown, making up for a running game that is averaging around three yards per carry.
