It was an ugly first half of football as the 1-7 New York Giants and 0-9 San Francisco 49ers largely lived down to expectations.

The game started out horribly for the Giants, with Jason Pierre-Paul overpursuing a run by Carlos Hyde, giving up a 28-yard gain on the first play of the gain. That quickly turned into a 43-yard gain thanks to a late hit out of bounds by Darian Thompson. The drive ended in a field goal after penalties and some good play by the Giants’ defense.

The Giants’ ended their first two drives in field goals of their own, but the defense gave up a pair of touchdowns on long plays. The first was of an Eli Manning fumble, when Janoris Jenkins was beaten by Marquis Goodwin for an 83-yard touchdown. The next possession Jenkins was beaten again, this time by tight end Garrett Celek for a 47-yard touchdown.

As has become customary, the lone bright spots for the Giants have been Sterling Shepard, who leads the team with 4 receptions for 72 yards, and Evan Engram who has three receptions for 18 yards, including this touchdown.

The Giants will get the ball to start the second half.
