Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
While the Giants' defense was terrorizing Trent Dilfer and the 49ers, Amani Toomer made some history on offense, setting a franchise record for touchdown receptions.
Burress has his six-game touchdown streak ended. ... Tynes has missed two extra points this season. ... Moran Norris blocked Jeff Feagles' punt for a safety. ... Toomer's TD catch was his 49th, giving him the Giants' career record with one more than Kyle Rote.
A combination of turnovers converted into scores, a blitz package that confused the 49ers' O-line and the Giants' offensive line overpowering the San Fran led to a New York win. Between Michael Strahan and Osi Umenyiora coming off the edge coupled with well-timed run blitzes and safety blitzes flustered the 49ers'front line. It also contributed to four San Francisco turnovers that turned into 24 New York points. The Giants' zone-blocking scheme was also instrumental in the win; New York controlled the line of scrimmage, allowing running backs Brandon Jacobs and Derrick Ward to run to the outside and up the middle effectively. The interior dominance on both sides of the ball lead to an easy and impressive New York victory.
