1:25 The 49ers will receive the opening kickoff.
1:25 The kick rolls out of bounds. The Niners start from their 40-yard line.
1:30 On the first play of the game, Carlos Hyde takes a pitch to his left, cuts back, gains 28 yards around the right end, takes a hit as he runs out of bounds and draws a 15-yard penalty. The Niners get the ball at the Giants 17-yard line. Then Trent Brown commits his weekly false start. Then Hyde catches a pass for no gain. Then Matt Breida catches a pass for a loss of six. Then Breida catches another pass for a gain of three. Then Robbie Gould makes a 46-yard field goal. I was worried the 49ers might actually score a touchdown for a second. They lead 3-0.
1:40 Aldrick Rosas makes a 47-yard field goal, and the Giants tie the game at three.
1:48 On fourth-and-1 from the Giants 36, Kyle Shanahan calls a handoff for Kyle Juszczyk, who gains no yards. Turnover on downs.
1:55 Rosas makes a 42-yard field goal, and the Giants lead 6-3. Let’s see if Shanahan abandons the run game now that he’s trailing by a field goal.
2:00 The 49ers will face first-and-10 from their 36 when the second quarter begins.
2:09 The 49ers drive to the Giants 30, then Juszczyk commits a holding penalty, then he catches a screen pass and fumbles and Giants recover. Classic 49ers sequence. Giants ball at their 46.
2:15 Ronald Blair beats the right tackle around the edge and sacks Manning, who fumbles. Eric Reid recovers. Blair’s rush was better than any of Solomon Thomas’ rushes this season.
2:18 On third-and-8 from the 49ers 17, the Giants blitz, Carlos Hyde blocks the extra rusher, Marquise Goodwin runs deep, beats Janoris Jenkins and catches an 83-yard touchdown pass. Niners lead 10-6. Beautiful block by Hyde and terrific throw by Beathard.
2:28 On second-and-five from the 49ers nine-yard line, Eric Reid gives up a touchdown pass to rookie tight end Evan Engram. Manning’s pass flew right pass Reid’s face. Giants lead 13-10. Engram ran a Stick Nod, which is a killer route in the red zone.
2:40 On first-and-10 from the Giants 47, C.J. Beathard hits tight end Garrett Celek deep over the middle, Celek catches the ball in stride running a deep crossing route, Marquise Goodwin blocks free safety Darian Thompson and Celek runs into the end zone. Niners lead 17-13 with 28 seconds left in the first half.
2:44 The first half ends. The 49ers have their first halftime lead of the season. They gained 281 yards in the first half. Amazing how well they play when they face a team that quit two weeks ago.
3:09 Rosas misses a 34-yard field goal.
3:15 On first-and-10 from the Giants 12, Logan Paulsen commits a holding penalty. Next play, Kyle Shanahan calls a screen pass to Breida, and Beathard throws the ball right to Olivier Vernon, who makes the interception. Giants ball at their 25.
3:25 Adrian Colbert breaks up a deep pass intended for Tavarres King on third-and-16, and the Giants punt. Colbert has been one of the 49ers’ best players in this game.
3:26 During the punt return, Victor Bolden fumbles and the Giants recover. But the 49ers challenge, and officials reverse their ruling on the field. Niners keep possession.
3;38 The 49ers will face third-and-2 from the Giants 11 when the fourth quarter starts.
3:40 On third-and-2, Beathard rolls to his right, keeps the ball and runs into the end zone for an easy touchdown. 23-13 Niners. That was an 11-play, zero-penalty touchdown drive. Who are these guys???
3:44 Beathard hurt his hand during his TD run. But he’s throwing on the sideline. He looks fine.
3:46 On third-and-13 from the Giants 22, Manning overthrows Sterling Shepard deep, and the Giants punt.
3:53 On first-and-10 from the Giants 33, Breida makes one cut and explodes up field for a long touchdown run. The Niners lead 31-13. They’re playing very well, even though the Giants aren’t playing hard. The Niners haven’t made the self-inflicted errors they made the first nine games of the season. Remarkable.
3:59 The Giants go three-and-out. This is a blowout.
4:05 Niners go three-and-out, but it doesn’t matter. This game is over. Stay tuned for my postgame Periscope, game story and grades.
