After fumbling twice in last year’s NFC Championship, 49ers’ Kyle Williams says he is looking forward to this Sunday’s game against the New York Giants (Credit: AP Photo)


While there are plenty of players on both teams that remember last year’s NFC Championship game, Kyle Williams probably remembers the game for all of the wrong reasons.


Williams fumbled two punts that the Giants recovered and turned into points in that game, including the game-winning field goal in overtime. Williams wound up getting death threats from unhinged “fans” of the team and there were a lot of questions this offseason about his ability to get past the mistakes.


Now Williams is getting another chance to face the team that helped cause the worst day of his professional career. The Giants come to Candlestick in Week Six and Williams admitted that he’s had the date circled on his calendar for a long time.


“After what happened last year, I definitely want to get back at these guys. … We look at it as if they had something we should have had,” Williams said, via Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group and Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee.
