49ers fall on last minute go-ahead touchdown

49ers fall on last minute go-ahead touchdown

And it didn't end in a victory.

The New York Giants upset the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night, 27-23, to secure just their second win of the season and their fifth since the start of 2016.

This time around, Mullens didn't set records or find himself in the esteemed company of a series of Hall of Fame quarterbacks. Gould's field goal gave the 49ers a 23-20 lead with 2:46 to go. Mullens went 27 for 39 for 250 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions.

Rams coach Sean McVay said he hoped Kupp would undergo knee surgery this week to begin to long rehabilitation road back for next season. He's one of those guys, and that's why I think it's so important for running backs to be able to catch, that we can throw him the ball and sometimes if we throw it to him more than we hand it off, so be it. But several players stood out most and deserved game balls.

"It's a huge loss for our football team". Beckham dropped an easy slant pass on the first play of the game and became the Giants most reliable offensive weapon. Mullens put on a show against the Raiders but faced little resistance.

For his part, Mullens had a slightly different take: "Effort doesn't always win games", he said.

The 49ers not only failed to generate pressure, but they seemingly, again, failed to handle the pressure with the game in the balance.

Last summer, in a draft loaded with quarterback talent, Giants general manager Dave Gettleman chose running back Saquon Barkley with the number two overall pick, passing on the chance to draft one between Josh Allen, Josh Rosen and Sam Darnold-who ended up on the other side of the divide in NY. This is their first win since defeating the Houston Texans in Week 3.

The Niners settled for a field goal rather than a potential winning touchdown or, at least, the opportunity to burn more clock before kicking the field goal. "It was just frustrating". "Like I told them I said, the ones that you have to fight the hardest for are the ones that should feel the best".

His first interception setup the Giants first touchdown of the game as he caught a pass that was deflected by Janoris Jenkins, and ran it back to the 49ers 12-yard line.

Gould had hit earlier from 53 yards in the first quarter to open the scoring and from 36 yards with two seconds left in the half to send the 49ers into halftime with a 13-10 lead.

Tight end George Kittle was full of praise. "He was great. He has a great voice".

Last week, the Saints signed receiver Dez Bryant, but he tore his Achilles in only his second practice and never played a game for New Orleans.
