If Eli Manning's going to lead his seventh game-winning fourth quarter comeback this season against the Niners in the 2012 NFC Championship Game, the Giants are going to have to get him the ball back to do it. The Giants went three-and-out after the Niners rallied to tie the game at 17-17 in the fourth quarter.
Manning threw to Travis Beckum on short passes on first and third down of the drive, but his second down overthrow of Mario Manningham will hurt the most. Manning had him located, and Manningham had a step on the San Francisco defense, but the ball whizzed well beyond his reach.
