49ers Vs. Giants Score Update: NFC Championship Game Going To Overtime, Tied 17-17

It looked like the San Francisco 49ers had taken momentum away from the New York Giants when they pressured Eli Manning and forced a punt deep in their own territory, but a miscue by Kyle Williams on the punt return gave the football back to New York. Eli Manning then made a connection with Hakeem Nicks and Brandon Jacobs before finding Mario Manningham in the end zone for a go-ahead touchdown to make it 17-14.


The 49ers responded quickly to tie things up. A big return by Williams put San Francisco at midfield. Two big rushes by Alex Smith for 17 yards and Kendall Hunter for 18 yards set up a David Akers 25 yard field goal to tie things up with just over five-and-a-half minutes left. Both San Francisco and New York's offenses stalled after that, and couldn't get into field goal range after that.
