The game couldn't have gotten off to worse start for the Giants with Jerrel Jernigan losing the handle on the opening kickoff fumbling the ball forward into the arms of Oakland's Holmes on the Giants' 27. Andre Holmes returned it to the Giants' 5.

Two plays later, QB Terrelle Pryor dove over from the one to give the Raiders a 7-0 lead in the first minute of the game.

Later in the quarter, the Giants retuned the favor by blocking a punt and returning it for the touchdown for the first time since Sept 5, 1988. On 4-and-15 from the OAK 48, Damontre Moore bolted through the line, blocking Marquette King's punt cleanly. The ball was scooped up by Cooper Taylor on the 21, who took it the rest of the way for the score.

Raiders (+7) at Giants O/U 43.5

The Raiders are 0-3 on the road this season and are coming off a huge home loss in which Eagles' QB Nick Foles tossed for over 400 yards and tied an NFL record with seven TD passes. They face a Giants team that is on a two game winning streak and is getting healthier by the day.

From Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast....

Only two NFC East games this weekend, since the Redskins are on the bye week. Here are the other two games:

Giants at Bengals: FOX 1pm, Thom Brennaman, Brian Billick and Laura Omkin: How is this game getting more national attention than Falcons-Saints? I get that the Giants play in an enormous market, but isn?t Falcons-Saints way more compelling? Anyway, whatever. Good for the Giants fans around the country. This is one of those games, where if the Giants win, their fans get to kick back, relax, and laugh at the loser of the 4pm Cowboys-Eagles game. However, if the Giants lose, does a little tinge of worry begin to creep in about whoever wins the 4 o?clocker?

We all thought 49ers' TE Delanie Walker intentionally drew Giants' DE Dave Tollefson offsides by feigning a "shift". Walker did not shift at all. He stood up and moved backward a step. He never even appeared to be shifting. It was a false start and everyone knew it. Everyone except the officials....

"You have to understand that the intent to deceive is something that has to be determined," said Giants' coach Tom Coughlin. "The officials did not think that that was intent to deceive. We can disagree all we want. It happened before, on a fourth-and-one, for them and they were called for it. But it?s obvious that it?s a part of their plan and they execute it very well. On that particular play, the backside tight end did false start and that wasn?t called."

The Giants hung tough today, but mistakes put them in too big a hole to overcome this time around. QB Eli Manning appeared to be on the verge of another 4th quarter miracle, but the comeback was not meant to be.

They fell to the now 8-1 San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park, 27-20.

The New York Giants (6-2) travel to San Francisco to play the 7-1 49ers in a battle of division leaders and contrasting styles. The 49ers are a run-oriented offense with a run-stopping defense while Giants possess a dangerous passing game and a devastating pass rush.

After an exhilarating win over the New England Patriots last Sunday, the Giants (6-2) will now have to venture to the west coast for an important NFC matchup with the NFC West leading San Francisco 49ers (7-1).

The Giants have appropriately moved on from the celebratory high of beating the Patriots and are now solely focused on preparing for the 49ers. The 49ers are polar opposites of the Patriots, as they have one of the league?s best defenses and love to lean on their running game.

This game will be the definition of smash-mouth football. It will be a war won in the trenches.

It's that time again where we put our unabashed prognostications for the Giants' upcoming game. The spread is 49ers by 3 1/2 and the over/under is 42.

Fennelly: The 49ers are 7-1 and much-improved and have defeated both the good teams along with the bad. They are vulnerable to the pass, as illustrated in their games vs Dallas and Philadelphia. They are a highly-competitive bunch that mixes it up well and does not back down from a fight. New head coach Jim Harbaugh has them headed in the right direction. His handling of QB Alex Smith has been brilliant, taking him from bust to boom almost overnight.

They will attempt to exploit the Giants' run-challenged defense with RB Frank Gore and will most likely succeed. They want to avoid getting into a shootout with the Giants, where Eli Manning has endless options now that WR Victor Cruz and TE Jake Ballard have emerged as viable weapons.

One of the reasons the Giants have been yielding so many yards on the ground is because they deviate from their base defense, taking out the middle linebacker and inserting an extra defensive back.

This alignment protects the Giants from what sunk their ship last season - surrendering big plays up top (through the air) but leaves them short-staffed vs the power run teams in the NFL. ?The 49ers - the Giants' opponent this Sunday - is one of those power run teams. ?They have a beast of runner in Frank Gore and the Giants will need a presence in the middle to slow him down.

Our good friend and colleague Paul Dottino of WFAN always has some keen insight and tells it like it is. ?Here is his assessment of the Giants-Niners showdown this week:

Welcome to the NFL?s version of hockey?s neutral-zone trap: The San Francisco 49ers (7-1) rely on a power running game spelled by a short-pass attack, a rugged rushing defense and a very strong dose of special teams.

So exactly what are the Giants (6-2) getting themselves into when they head to Candlestick Park on Sunday?

Eli Manning

It's hard to bench someone playing as well as Manning is right now. The 49ers are middle-of-the-road in terms of fantasy points allowed to QBs. Although some are predicting a low-scoring game, it looks like Hakeem Nicks will play, bumping this matchup up a bit.

Matchup: 8/10

1. Packers (8-0) - The defense may be their Achilles Heel, allowing 460 yards to the Chargers. They did force three turnovers and score two touchdowns, though, so it's not all bad.

2. 49ers (7-1) - They continue to win ugly games, and now lead their division by a ridiculous five games.

3. Saints (6-3) - Few things are more important than starting off your day with a well-balanced offense. The Saints have the second best passing offense and the ninth best rushing offense.

If you don't read Mike Tanier's football analysis?every Sunday in The New York Times, you're doing yourself a disservice. Tanier is intelligent and funny, a good read for NFL fans. Here's his analysis of today's Giants-Cowboys game:

Many people hoped that Wade Phillips would survive one more week as the Cowboys head coach, though Wade Phillips was probably not among them. He can now enjoy the good night?s sleep that comes from a generous severance package and a Roy Williams-free lifestyle. The Giants, meanwhile, must worry about a Cowboys organization whose collective self-preservation instincts are now on overdrive.

Rest easy, Giants fans. The interim head coach Jason Garrett may have once beaten the Giants, 31-7, as a quarterback, but as a coach he?s just as responsible for the Cowboy debacle as Phillips, which makes him half as responsible as Jerry Jones. Jon Kitna is still the Cowboys quarterback, and Danny Kanell ? who lost that epic duel to Garrett in 1998 ? will not be in attendance. Expect a repeat of Week 7: the Cowboys will come out on fire, then stumble around for 40 minutes when the adrenaline wears off, then score some meaningless touchdowns so they look busy for the boss.

Average Ranking: 1.8

CBS Sports: 1 - They've ripped off five consecutive victories to stake a claim as the league's best. That pass rush is suffocating. Perry Fewell has done a heck of a job coordinating that defense.

ESPN: 4 - The Giants seem downright dominating, and they're improving week to week.

Cream Rising to Top; Opposite Also True

1. Giants (6-2) - An impressive win in Seattle, a place that had been tough on them in recent years. ?The win was as dominant as they come; the 41-7 score actually made the game seem closer than it really was.

2. Packers (6-3) - Their victory Sunday night was impressive, even if they were playing the worst team in the NFC.

3. Saints (6-3) - In throttling the Panthers, the Saints are just taking care of business, but Drew Brees has not been as dominant this season as in the past couple of years.
