AP: Giants smother hapless 49ers


Recommended Posts

From Post news services


Osi Umenyiora scored on a 75-yard fumble return and the New York defense helped account for 24 points as the Giants pounded San Francisco 33-15 Sunday at the Meadowlands to win their fifth straight.

The dynamic four-end defensive line of the Giants (5-2) had a field day against the NFL's worst offense. New York forced four turnovers by the 49ers (2-4), sacked Dilfer six times and made him play with his head on a swivel while Alex Smith rested his ailing shoulder on the sideline.

Michael Strahan had his biggest sack performance since 2003 with 2½ against his former defensive coordinator and current 49ers coach Mike Nolan.

Eli Manning threw touchdown passes to Amani Toomer and Jeremy Shockey, and Brandon Jacobs ran for 107 yards and a touchdown for the Giants.
