The 49ers came up with a huge stop inside the two-minute warning to take over again with 1:47 left in regulation. The Niners started their possession at their own 29 yard line. Quarterback Alex Smith was pressured and threw two quick incomplete passes to set up 3rd and 10. The Niners were 0-for-10 on third-down conversion attempts at that point, which would run to 0-for-11 when Smith threw another incomplete pass to force the punt back to the Giants with 1:29 left in the quarter.
