49ers' Jim Harbaugh says they have to move on from Giants loss

The 49ers suffered a surprisingly sound defeat at the hands of the Giants on Sunday, but a short week doesn't give them much time to dwell on the loss.

The San Francisco 49ers played their worst game of the season in a 26-3 loss to the New York Giants on Sunday, but with a Thursday night game against a division foe coming up, there isn't much time to think about that loss. The 49ers will spend most of their time preparing for the Seahawks this week, rather than trying to figure out what went wrong against the Giants.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh stressed to the media that the team has to get past the disappointing defeat, especially with a tough Seahawks squad coming up that just knocked off the New England Patriots. Harbaugh spoke about that with reporters on Monday, according to CSN Bay Area.

"I don't think any of us feel we had our best day," 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Monday. "Certainly, wouldn't be human if you didn't hurt today. But there's no time. You got to dust yourself and rise."

The 49ers will host the Seahawks at 5:20 p.m. PT on Thursday. Both teams hold 4-2 records and are tied with the Arizona Cardinals for first place in the division. This will be San Francisco's first of three-straight games against NFC West foes. It travels to Arizona to take on the Cardinals the following week before hosting the Rams after a bye.
