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.

Fred Warner, Nick Bosa, 49ers defense shoulder blame in loss to Broncos

The Denver Broncos offense scored only nine points against the San Francisco 49ers defense on Sunday night. The Niners offense, Jimmy Garoppolo specifically, provided two of the home team's 11 total points after the quarterback stepped out of the back of the end zone for a safety. The 49ers offense couldn't get much going with Garoppolo at the helm. The quarterback finished the game 18-of-29 for 211 yards, a touchdown, an interception, and a passer rating of 81.3 in his first start of the season. Yet, the defense accepted the blame for San Francisco's record falling to 1-2 in a game in which they were favored. "We've got to play a full four-quarter game," linebacker Fred Warner said after the 11-10 loss in Denver. "It doesn't matter how dominant we are throughout



17 quick, aggravating observations from the 49ers loss in Denver

Well, that was about as aggravating as a loss can get. The San Francisco 49ers defense was dominant. The offense was offensive. Disgusting. Predictable. I could go on, but I'm guessing you already have a plethora of words to describe last night's offensive performance for yourself. So I won't add any more. At halftime, this game seemed strikingly familiar. Dominating a team on the road, but barely having any points to show for it. And just like that stormy game in Chicago, the 49ers sank in the second half, giving up the lead, and then failing to take the lead back. One difference was the quarterback. This one was more aggravating because you expect Trey Lance to struggle. We all knew he'd have some bad moments. But Jimmy Garoppolo should be better by now. And



49ers work out several quarterbacks, receivers, and tight ends ahead of Broncos game

On Monday, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan admitted that the team would look to work out running backs after losing rookie Ty Davis-Price to a high-ankle sprain for several weeks. The team will also seek another quarterback, with Trey Lance's season over due to a broken ankle. Those weren't the only injuries from Sunday's 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks. Tight end Tyler Kroft suffered an MCL sprain and will also miss several weeks. That prompted the 49ers to work out former North Carolina tight end Garrett Walston, who signed with San Francisco as an
