Giants Vs. 49ers, 2012 NFC Championship Game: Ray McDonald Sacks Eli Manning Again

The New York Giants have done a decent job of neutralizing the big names on San Francisco's defense — sack artists Justin Smith and Aldon Smith have not heard their names called very often. But Ray McDonald has heard his a few times.

McDonald burst through the middle of the line on another Giants third down late in the third quarter of the 2012 NFC Championship Game, and led a pack of Niners that swarmed Eli Manning to force another Giants punt.

The sack gave McDonald, who has come into his own as an NFL player in 2011, 2.5 for the day. And with the Giants likely looking to pass from here on in, given their deficit, he may have more opportunities.
