So the 49ers did what they were supposed to do and beat the Giants and have thus kept this desperate season alive. It's an ironic stretch of 14 days that has seen the team face two relatively-recent Super Bowl champions.

That percentage drops to 13% for a team that starts off 4-5....

Once again, Ahmad Brooks sacked Drew Brees. Once again, Brooks went high, grabbing Brees around the shoulders. Once again, Brees fumbled. Once again, the Niners recovered, clinching the game. And in that split-second, you had to wonder if once again, the refs would agree, as Brees whined last year: "That's got to be a flag." But this time, they didn't. And to Brees's credit, he didn't...
