New York Giants earn dramatic win over San Francisco 49ers to end five-game skid

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — One down, seven to go.

The Giants are keeping Odell Beckham Jr.'s win-out proclamation alive — barely.

Eli Manning certainly missed some throws Monday night.

But with so much speculation about his future as the quarterback of the New York Giants, Manning made the ones that counted most.

The biggest was a 4-yard, perfectly-placed strike to Sterling Shepard for the game-winning touchdown as the Giants snapped a five-game losing streak by topping the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football, 27-23, at Levi's Stadium.

This was Manning's first fourth-quarter comeback victory since Week 10 of 2016.

The Giants drove 75 yards in nine plays in 1:53, taking advantage of two 49ers defensive penalties to keep their decisive drive alive. Manning found Saquon Barkley on a catch-and-run that brought possession inside the 10.

Then came the touchdown to Shepard, who made a leaping grab while falling out of bounds near the front left pylon to give the Giants the lead.
