The 49ers couldn't handle the Giants in their own backyard of Candlestick Park, as the NFC West juggernaut lost 20-17 in overtime. Return man Kyle Williams had two costly fumbles that led to San Francisco's demise.
Quarterback Alex Smith completed 12 of 26 passes for 196 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. The Giants defense did a good job neutralizing stud running back Frank Gore as he pounded out just 74 yards on 16 carries. Gore also caught six passes for 45 receiving yards. After being the hero for the 49ers in the Divisional Round vs. New Orleans, tight end Vernon Davis put in another stellar performance with three grabs for 112 yards and two touchdowns. But wide receiver Michael Crabtree was a big disappointment with a measly one catch for three receiving yards.

There is nothing in sports as cruel as a game like this, modern-day gladiators pulverizing each other for four hours in the cold and sideways rain, only to watch bystanders decide championships.
But it is often the inherent truth of football, and especially playoff football, that the most riveting moments are not decided by heroes, but by goats. For more than seven hours yesterday...
In the end, the 49ers’ storybook season was slammed shut suddenly and in the most unlikely manner.
A San Francisco team that had built a magical season and advanced within one win of the Super Bowl by playing mistake-free football was eliminated by two horrific mistakes by punt returner Kyle Williams in the New York Giants’ 20-17 overtime victory Sunday over the 49ers in the...
