Heartbreaking 30-27 loss for 49ers: Game recaps from Oct. 11

Oct 11, 2015 at 8:53 PM--


Late in the fourth quarter, San Francisco 49ers RB Carlos Hyde ran the football into the end zone for a 2-yard touchdown to give his team what appeared to be the go-ahead score. It would not be enough as New York Giants QB Eli Manning would engineer an 8-play, 82-yard drive capped off with a 12-yard touchdown pass to TE Larry Donnell, giving the Giants a 30-27 victory at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

It was a heartbreaking loss for the 49ers, who have now lost four straight since their season opening victory.

San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick didn't put up phenomenal numbers, but they were good enough to nearly give his 49ers the victory. He was fairly mistake free on Sunday night, completing 23 of 35 passes for 262 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions.

Eli Manning threw a career high 54 passes, completing 41 of them. He had 441 passing yards, three touchdowns, and one interception.


On the ground, 49ers RB Carlos Hyde had 93 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries. WR Anquan Boldin led the 49ers in receiving yards with 107 and a touchdown on 8 catches.

CB Tramaine Brock had the 49ers' lone interception.

With the 49ers down 13-6 at halftime, the two teams alternated scoring during the second half. The 49ers struck first and tied the game at 13-13. The Giants then went up 20-13 in the third quarter. In the fourth, the 49ers would tie things up again at 20-20. A Giants field goal would give them a late 3-point lead before San Francisco would jump ahead 27-23. Then the Giants would need just 1:24 to secure the 30-27 victory.

Next, the 49ers will face the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, October 18 at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.

For The Record - 49ers CB Deommodore Lenoir

My apologies for the delay on my end for the two-week hiatus--life comes at you fast! I plan on finishing off the "For The Record" series with the remaining players along with a full evaluation of the 49ers' draft class with consideration to the recent training camp injuries (safety Tarvarius Moore, offensive lineman Justin Skule). While NFL Draft pundits and fans alike can give instant reactions to their team's player selections, it's easy to forget that the true value of the picks cannot be fully assessed until after a couple of seasons. Some players become instant starters (Nick Bosa), while others remain works in progress (Javon Kinlaw). Having said that, I want to pull out the receipts on what draft analysts were saying prior to the draft, along with their

With a new NFL season around the corner, coaching staffs are starting to get a feel for the teams they will be marching into battle with. The San Francisco 49ers have spent the last few months solidifying their roster from top to bottom. With many key players returning from injury, the 49ers have a strong group, with most of the starting positions locked up. There will be several depth positions available for grabs. After a disastrous 2020 season, the 49ers learned that quality depth at all position groups is critical. Here are a few players who find themselves on the roster bubble and will all need to stand out in training camp if they want to earn a roster spot. Josh Rosen, QB



Where PFF ranks the 49ers secondary

Pro Football Focus continues its rankings of position groups across the NFL ahead of the 2021 season. The latest involves all 32 secondaries. Where do the San Francisco 49ers rank? You have to scroll down to No. 20 to find defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans' group. As for the rest of the NFC West, the Los Angeles Rams sit at No. 9, the Arizona Cardinals at No. 22, and the Seattle Seahawks at No. 26. San Francisco was able to keep much of its secondary together this offseason after much of it hit free agency. The team lost Ahkello Witherspoon to the Seahawks but re-signed cornerbacks Jason Verrett, K'Waun Williams, and Emmanuel Moseley. The 49ers also brought



Haberman and Middlekauff rank the injuries the 49ers must avoid in 2021

Injuries are unavoidable in the NFL. No team is going to make it through a now-17-game season without injuries. That's why having good depth is so important. However, there remain some players who, if they leave the lineup, could dramatically impact a team's production. We saw a lot of that with the San Francisco 49ers last season. Injuries plagued the roster as the team limped its way through a six-win season. You knew the loss of pass rusher Nick Bosa to a torn ACL in Week 2 would impact the season. On the offensive side of the football, the team lost Jimmy Garoppolo, and the quarterback went on to miss 10 of the last 14 games. The miserable injury luck continued this week. San Francisco lost two players to significant injuries during Monday's practice.
