of game-winning drive that earned him two Super Bowl MVP awards.Manning
capped a 75-yard drive with a 3-yard touchdown pass to Sterling Shepard with 53
seconds left and the New York Giants snapped a five-game losing streak by
beating the San Francisco 49ers 27-23 on Monday night."It doesn't get

," said Manning, whose 36 game-winning drives are
the third most in the NFL since he entered the league in 2004. "It's fun. It's
fun playing in those games and having a two-minute drive to win it. Those are
the situations you want to be in. You want to have a chance."The Giants (2-7)
have failed to capitalize on those late-game situations this season, losing five
games by seven or fewer points as part of a disappointing stretch that has put
the 37-year-old Manning's status as starting quarterback in question.But Manning
delivered against the 49ers (2-8) to give New York a much-needed win."That's
what Eli is really good at, engineering those come-from-behind drives," coach
Pat Shurmur said. "That was terrific. He hung in there and made some really good
throws and got us into the end zone. That's the sign of a good
quarterback."Manning threw two TD passes to Odell Beckham Jr. and then
engineered the late game-winning drive with help from a pair of third-down
penalties against Malcolm Smith and Ahkello Witherspoon.Saquon Barkley then had
a 23-yard catch to get the ball into the red zone and Manning connected with
Shepard on third down to give the Giants the win."I just saw man-to-man

," Shepard said. "That's something we've been
practicing. I was able to capture the outside edge and Eli put the ball in a
perfect place."Matt Breida ran for 101 yards and scored two touchdowns for the
49ers (2-8), who were unable to win consecutive games under third-string
quarterback Nick Mullens. Breida's 23-yard run helped set up a 30-yard field
goal by Robbie Gould that gave the Niners a 23-20 lead with 2:46 to play.But the
49ers allowed the go-ahead score and couldn't pull it out at the end as Mullens'
pass from the Giants 21 sailed out of the end zone on the final play."Those are
the plays you have to make to finish the game," Mullens said. "That was a moment
of truth, and I didn't get the job done. I have to play better in those moments
of truth. We all have to play better."Mullens wasn't nearly as sharp as he was
in his NFL debut against the Raiders on Nov. 1 when he joined Hall of Famers Jim
Kelly and Fran Tarkenton as the only players with at least 250 yards passing,
three touchdown passes and no interceptions in the first career game.Mullens
threw for 250 yards and had an 11-yard TD pass to Breida that made it 20-10
early in the third quarter. But Mullens also threw two interceptions with the
first setting up a 10-yard TD pass from Manning to Beckham .Those two connected
again on a 20-yard score in the third quarter as New York rallied from 10 points
down to tie the game in the second half.HARD HITNiners receiver Marquise Goodwin
was hit in the helmet by Alec Ogletree on a catch late in the third quarter and
briefly left the game. On his first play back in to start the fourth
quarter Youth

, a pass from Mullens deflected off Goodwin's
hands for the second interception of the game by B.J. Goodson . Goodwin was slow
to get up after that play and went back into the medical tent for observation.
Goodwin returned to the game later in the fourth quarter.BAD REACTIONWitherspoon
got beat on Beckham's second TD catch and immediately threw his hands up in
disgust because he didn't get the safety help he expected from Antone Exum.
Teammate Richard Sherman and coaches talked to Witherspoon on the sideline to
tell him not to show up a teammate."Man up. Don't put that on tape," coach Kyle
Shanahan said. "We'll deal with that when we come in."CENTURY MARKBarkley rans
for 67 yards and added 33 receiving to join Eric Dickerson as the only players
since the merger to gain at least 100 yards from scrimmage in eight of their
first nine career games.MISSED OPPORTUNITYThe Giants entered the game converting
just 40 percent of their red zone trips into TDs. They missed a golden
opportunity for one late in the first half. On a third down from the 3, the
49ers left Beckham unguarded in the slot but Manning stuck with a run play to
Barkley that gained only 1 yard. New York settled for a field goal that tied the
game at 10.PLAYING FOR PARADISENiners GM John Lynch welcomed the high school
football team from Paradise, a town destroyed by the wildfires in Butte County,
about 175 miles north. Players and cheerleaders from the school were on the
field for the national anthem. The Niners raised more than

air quality for the game was at an unhealthy level because of the fires. The Air
Quality Index was at 161 at kickoff, which is in the unhealthy zone, and smoke
could be smelled throughout the stadium. The NFL had monitored the situation but
the AQI never got near 200, the level where the game would have needed to be
moved.UP NEXTGiants: Host Tampa Bay on Sunday.49ers: Visit Tampa Bay on Nov. 25.
