Giants tops again in NFC rematch
SAN FRANCISCO — Safety Antrel Rolle and the Giants studied Alex Smith so much they practically knew what was coming.
On one play in the third quarter, even running back Ahmad Bradshaw screamed from the sideline: "Trail. He's watching you." Rolle responded, pretended he was playing the ball and sliced in front of Kyle Williams on a short hook.
"He threw the ball right to me," Rolle said.
Rolle intercepted two passes, corner Prince Amukamara picked off another and the Giants shut down San Francisco in a rematch of last season's NFC Championship Game.
"I think this is our most complete game all year long," Rolle said.
After outscoring the Bills and Jets by a combined 79-3 the previous two weeks, the 49ers met their match. New York rode dominant defense — including two sacks by former USF defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul — and four field goals by Lawrence Tynes to the win.
