The New York Giants finally snapped their five-game losing streak Monday night with a 27-23 win over the San Francisco 49ers. That should bode well for the 49ers ground game, which doesn't necessarily need to get in the end zone, but more so help to keep drives alive.

Mullens, who made his National Football League debut in last week's 34-3 win over the Oakland Raiders, completed 27 of his 39 passes for 250 yards and one touchdown.

Still, it appeared Mullens and the rest of the offense might have done enough.

Rams coach Sean McVay said he hoped Kupp would undergo knee surgery this week to begin to long rehabilitation road back for next season. "He played his game".

"It's a huge loss for our football team".

It was Beckham's first game with multiple scores this season. Mullens put on a show against the Raiders but faced little resistance.

"Those are the situations you want to be in", the Giants quarterback said after the game, as per the Giants' official Twitter account.

Defensive backs K'Waun Williams (stinger) and receiver Goodwin were banged up in the game against the Giants but aren't expected to miss any time.

Given a chance to lead a winning drive with 53 seconds left and the ball at the Niners' 25, Mullens came up just short.

The game ended when quarterback Nick Mullens, making his second career start, had his desperation heave from New York's 21-yard line sail out of the end zone.

On third-and-6 at New York's 15 with 2:59 to go, Mullens dropped back to throw with plenty of time to get rid of it. 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.

The Niners settled for a field goal rather than a potential winning touchdown or, at least, the opportunity to burn more clock before kicking the field goal.

Said rookie right tackle Mike McGlinchey: "We had the game in our hands the whole second half and we just couldn't finish". Coach Shanahan talks about the moment of truth, that is a moment of truth if you ever see one. "I say it's a good experience or step forward because I think he'll get better from each experience he has". Manning threw three TD passes in all as NY ended a five-game slide.

On the bright side, Mullens didn't back down at the first sign of trouble. Shepard had two receptions for nine yards and a touchdown.

Robbie Gould gave the 49ers a 23-20 lead with 2:46 remaining on a 30-yard field goal and Manning had the ball and a chance to end this losing madness. "He was great. He has a great voice". This is what I love to do.

"Nick's a stud", he said.
