The New York Giants have done a fair bit of pass rush harassment in recent weeks, disrupting the passing games triggered by Tony Romo, Matt Ryan, and Aaron Rodgers in their unlikely run to the 2012 NFC Championship Game. They're having the script flipped on them by the San Francisco 49ers on this Sunday, though.
Eli Manning took his fourth sack of the day early in the fourth quarter at the hands of Aldon Smith, and his passing game, at times unstoppable in the first half, has been gummed up in the second half.
But a miscue by San Francisco's Kyle Williams, who had a Steve Weatherford punt go off his knee and get recovered by Devin Thomas, may just be the spark the Giants need.
