Although Eli Manning has generally had a good day in Candlestick Park, it hasn't been easy, and the San Francisco 49ers defense has really been laying the wood on him. San Francisco has sacked Manning five times today, including two big hits that really stalled drives.
First Ray McDonald and NaVorro Bowman gang-sacked Manning to force a Giants punt.
Then Aldon Smith decided to make Manning feel the wrath.
If the 49ers do end up winning this game, the pass rush will be one of the key factors to victory.
