Kyle Rudolph had a 3-yard TD reception and led the NFC with 122 receiving yards on 5 receptions. Blair Walsh hit FGs of 48 and 26 yards to go along with 8 PATs. Chad Greenway had a fumble recovery. Jerome Felton had a 4th quarter TD run. It was a good night for Vikings at the Pro Bowl.

Those contributions plus many others from the rest of the NFC squad led to a 62-35 victory over the AFC in the Pro Bowl. Rudolph’s TD came from NY Giants QB Eli Manning and it gave the NFC a commanding 31-14 lead as the squads went into the locker rooms at halftime. Felton’s TD came midway through the 4th quarter, with the game out of hand, and it gave the NFC its 62nd point and a 34-point lead.

Matt Kalil played much of the game while rotating between LT and RT, while Jared Allen also played much of the game and emphasized the importance of players participating in the game when voted in by their peers during a sideline interview during the 4th quarter. It’s notable that Allen made the statement because he’s played through a shoulder injury all season and did so once again during the Pro Bowl.

Adrian Peterson, who won Pro Bowl MVP honors after the 2007 season, had 5 carries for 13 yards and made a quick exit.

The NFC’s victory this year marks their 4th in the last 6 games.

Other standouts from the game included:

– Packers C Jeff Saturday snapping the ball to Broncos QB Peyton Manning. Saturday played for the NFC and Manning for the AFC, but the snap was a special moment because the two were long-time teammates with the Indianapolis Colts, and Saturday is set to retire this year.

– NY Giants DE Jason Pierre-Paul intercepting a pass intended for Houston DE JJ Watt and thrown by Indianapolis QB Andrew Luck.

– Bengals WR AJ Green grabbing 7 receptions for 119 yards and 3 TDs.

– NY Giants QB Eli Manning going 16 of 23 for 191 yards and 2 TDs.

– Seattle QB Russell Wilson going 8 of 10 for 98 yards and 3 TDs.

– Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson and NY Giants WR Victor Cruz combining for 16 receptions for 187 yards and 3 TDs.

– Saints QB Drew Brees throwing for 131 yards and 1 TD on 8 of 11 passing.

October 22, 2012

While Robert Griffin III is quickly becoming the NFL’s most exciting quarterback, there’s none better than Eli Manning with the game on the line.

Manning one-upped the Redskins’ rookie sensation with a pinpoint 77-yard scoring pass to Victor Cruz with 1:13 to play as the New York Giants overcame a late touchdown toss by Griffin to defeat Washington, 27-23, on Sunday.

‘‘With our offense and Eli at the helm, we’re never too worried,’’ Cruz said. ‘‘No matter what situation we’re in, no matter how many points we need or a field goal we need, we have the confidence we can do it. We have a lot of confidence in each other, and in Eli.’’

The Redskins (3-4) fell two games behind New York (5-2) in the division, as the Giants have won three straight.

The winning drive was the 22d of Manning’s career in either the fourth quarter or overtime, and eighth over the past two seasons. Manning finished 26 of 40 for 337 yards.

This pass might have been one of the most improbable. It came two plays and 19 seconds after Griffin capped a 77-yard drive with a 30-yard touchdown toss to Santana Moss. The rookie had kept the drive alive with a 19-yard pass off a desperate scramble on a fourth-and-10 play deep in his own territory, and a 24-yard run on the next play.

“It’s just more of the same,’’ said veteran Giants defensive tackle Chris Canty. “He continues to get better. He is probably the most deadly quarterback in the fourth quarter.’’

Redskins coach Mike Shanahan agreed, even though he was miffed that defensive backs Josh Wilson and Madieu Williams allowed Cruz to blow by them on the seam pattern.

‘‘Two guys have got one guy we focused on,’’ Shanahan said, ‘‘and they went down and beat us.’’

Griffin and everyone else on the offense felt they would use the final 73 seconds after Cruz’s TD to stage another comeback. But Moss fumbled at the Washington 43.

Ahmad Bradshaw and Andre Brown scored on 1-yard runs and Lawrence Tynes kicked a pair of field goals for the Giants, who won despite giving up 480 yards in total offense.

Griffin was 20 of 28 passing for 258 yards, with Moss catching both of his TD passes. Fellow rookie Alfred Morris gained 120 yards rushing and Griffin added 89.

‘‘I’m pretty mad at the football gods for putting him [Griffin] in the NFC East,’’ Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said. ‘‘To face that guy twice a year is going to be a headache.

“He takes away from your enthusiasm for the game when you play a play perfectly and he still has 4.3 speed to make plays. I don’t think there is anybody in the league just like him. If I was going to run an offense and they asked me [Michael] Vick, Cam Newton or RG3, I’m taking that guy hands down.’’

Griffin was picked off by safety Stevie Brown and his 41-yard return late in the third quarter set up Bradshaw’s 1-yard touchdown.

Griffin moved Washington into position to tie the game on the next possession, but he fumbled after being sacked by Jason Pierre-Paul, and Linval Joseph recovered the ensuing fumble at the Giants’ 29.

On the next play from scrimmage, linebacker Rob Jackson intercepted a quick out by Manning and Kai Forbath kicked a 45-yard field goal to narrow the lead to 20-16 with 5:21 to go.

The Giants were forced to punt on their next series and Washington got the ball back at its 23. After gaining nothing in three plays, Griffin went back to pass on fourth down, eluded Pierre-Paul, and then danced around long enough to find tight end Logan Paulsen for a 19-yard gain and a first down at the 42. The 24-yard scamper got the ball to the New York 34, and two plays later Moss beat Jayron Hosley and hauled in Griffin’s perfect pass as Griffin lay on his back and celebrated like a snow angel.

Theoretically, it’s no bigger for the 49ers than the season opener in Green Bay or games against the Lions, Vikings, Jets or Bills.

But, realistically, many Niners players have extra motivation to beat the Giants at Candlestick Park. After losing to them in overtime in the NFC Championship Game in January, it’s understandable.

“I wouldn’t say it’s bitterness,” says 49ers strong safety Donte Whitner, of San Francisco’s attitude going into this matchup. “We can’t take bitterness into this football game. It’s disappointment. We understand we’re disappointed about that loss, and we want to go out there and win this one.”

The 49ers certainly are coming into the game as the hotter team, and oddsmakers have made them a 6½-point favorite. After beating Green Bay and Detroit to open the season, then dropping a game in Minnesota, the Niners are coming off consecutive lopsided victories over the Jets and Bills.

Against Buffalo, the 49ers offense was electric, with 311 yards on the ground and 621 total yards, a franchise record. Defensively, the Niners have given up just three points over the past two games and look perhaps even better than they did last season. They rank No. 2 in the NFL in total defense and No. 2 in passing defense.

Niners head coach Jim Harbaugh is a bit concerned that quarterback Alex Smith may not be completely healthy, having sprained the middle finger on his throwing hand last week, but Smith says it’s not a concern. He’s been throwing well in practice and says he’s fine.

“Alex is well documented how tough he is,” Harbaugh told reporters this week. “He talks about it not being a big deal. So we’ll see.”

The 3-2 Giants are coming off a 41-27 victory over the Cleveland Browns, and offense hasn’t been a problem for New York. The Giants are rolling up 429.2 yards per game (second in the league) and passing for 309 yards per game (third in the league). Quarterback Eli Manning has consistently played well in big games in his career, and he’s off to a good start this season. Already he has 10 TD passes, and receivers Victor Cruz and Rueben Randle have been getting open often for big plays. New York also ran the ball exceptionally well against Cleveland (243 yards), with Ahmad Bradshaw running for a career-high 200 last week.

But Bradshaw knows that running against the 49ers defense is always a challenge.

San Francisco is allowing just 81.4 yards per game, and lineman Justin Smith and linebackers Patrick Willis, Navorro Bowman, Ahmad Brooks and Aldon Smith are extremely active and also provide a terrific pass rush out of the 3-4 defense.

“They’re just physical,” Bradshaw told the Newark Star-Ledger this week. “They’re strong. They shed blocks better than anybody in the league. They hit people up front and they come back to the ball. If the ball gets past them, they make plays downfield, even the big guys. So they never quit, they never stop.”

In the January matchup between the teams in the NFC Championship Game, the 49ers basically stuffed the Giants’ running game, then tried to put the pressure on Manning, sacking him six times.

Giants guard Kevin Boothe said this week that for New York to move the ball on offense and win, it’s going to need to make yards consistently on first down Sunday.

“That’s our challenge, to get yardage in the early down and distances,” he told the Star-Ledger. “Whether it’s run or pass to set up manageable third downs and situations like that where we can have an open playbook rather than everyone in the stadium knowing, ‘Hey, they have to be in shotgun, they have to throw the ball because it’s third-and-8-plus.”

October 14, 2012

With just under 10 minutes remaining in the fourth quarter, 49ers quarterback Alex Smith took the snap, dropped back to pass and immediately saw Giants linebacker Mathias Kiwanuka rushing toward him, as if Kiwanuka were running straight down Nob Hill.

Smith tried to retreat, spinning and turning as he went backward, but there was no escape. Kiwanuka smothered Smith, lingering over his twisted body for just a moment as the Giants’ sideline exploded. Across the field, 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh — hands placed firmly on his hips — could only stare.

The sack could be seen as the knockout blow from the Giants, although in many ways it came much earlier. After two epic games with San Francisco last season that both hinged on late dramatics, the Giants shredded the 49ers, 26-3, on Sunday in a performance led by their resurgent defense.

“The defense played outstanding,” quarterback Eli Manning said. “We were just waiting for them to play like we knew they could play.”

Kiwanuka’s sack was one of six for the Giants — Jason Pierre-Paul had two — and safety Antrel Rolle recorded two of the Giants’ three interceptions. The Giants stifled a 49ers offense that entered the game tied for third in the N.F.L. in scoring and that became the first team in league history to record 300 yards passing and 300 yards rushing in one game, in a blowout of Buffalo a week ago.

Given those credentials, it seemed unlikely that the 49ers might end up as the lowest-scoring local team in action Sunday — the San Francisco Giants played the St. Louis Cardinals here in the National League Championship Series later — but as the fans at Candlestick Park filed out midway through the fourth quarter, most likely hoping to beat traffic and get home in time for first pitch, that grim reality was impossible to ignore.

“We came out here with great purpose,” Giants Coach Tom Coughlin said. “I think the defense finally decided they were going to go out there and play — and they did.”

The Giants’ offense, which has so often carried the team, was inconsistent, twice failing to get into the end zone after forcing turnovers but ultimately doing more than enough. Manning passed for just 193 yards and a touchdown, but running back Ahmad Bradshaw flourished for a second straight week, rushing for 116 yards on 27 carries: a worthy follow-up to his 200-yard performance against Cleveland last week.

“Ahmad is tough,” Coughlin said. “You’re going to have to hogtie him to get him down.”

Victor Cruz caught six passes for 58 yards, Domenik Hixon had 78 receiving yards, and Hakeem Nicks, playing for the first time since Week 2 because of an injured foot and knee, returned with three catches for 44 yards.

The Giants’ most productive offensive player was kicker Lawrence Tynes, who connected on four field goals (and two extra points), though one other field-goal attempt was blocked.

The blowout dampened a matchup that was expected to be emotional. Though the teams are separated by roughly 2,500 miles, the rivalry between the Giants and the 49ers has taken on almost a divisional feel recently. Sunday’s meeting was the third between the teams in less than a year, and the increasing familiarity has, not surprisingly, led to a measure of contempt on a variety of levels.

On the lighter side was the good-natured trash talk between Giants players and their former teammate Mario Manningham, the receiver who joined running back Brandon Jacobs in bolting for the 49ers over the off-season. (Jacobs was inactive Sunday.) Manningham, who finished with five catches for 72 yards, said he had stayed in close touch with Nicks, and the two certainly engaged in some banter this past week. As Manningham said, “nobody is going to say their team is going to lose.”

But that sort of repartee was tame compared with the back-and-forth between Cruz and 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers. The two have a feud that dates to last season, when, after recording an interception, Rogers mocked Cruz’s trademark salsa dance. Cruz labeled the act disrespectful and excoriated Rogers in his autobiography, which was published in July.

In the buildup to this game, Rogers initially said he might reprise his not-so-well-intentioned tribute but then recanted after he was informed, he said, that the dance was designed to be a testament to Cruz’s late grandmother. Once Rogers learned of the family connection, he said, he decided that his mockery was in poor form — though he missed an opportunity to show his restraint when he dropped what would have been a critical interception five minutes into the third quarter.

The controversy apparently did little to faze Cruz, who happily demonstrated the authentic version of the dance after catching a 6-yard touchdown pass from Manning in the second quarter.

That sequence, which capped a 67-yard drive and punished San Francisco’s Smith for an ugly interception, drew a disgusted reaction from Harbaugh, who waved his hand and shook his head as the Giants celebrated.

Harbaugh’s frustration was not surprising because he was at the center of the most notable exchange of words between the teams. For whatever reason, Harbaugh was particularly miffed after Kevin Gilbride, the Giants’ offensive coordinator, said to reporters that 49ers defensive lineman Justin Smith “gets away with murder” in terms of holding and twisting opposing linemen.

Harbaugh had his own sessions with reporters later in the day and released a statement through the 49ers in which he labeled Gilbride’s assertion an “absurd analogy.” He also accused the Giants’ coaches of trying to influence the officials.

As it turned out, the officials were the least of Harbaugh’s concerns. The 49ers’ offense, which had been so dominant this season, was out of sync throughout the second half. Trailing by 20 points with about three minutes to go in the third quarter, Harbaugh opted to go for it on fourth-and-15 from the Giants’ 34.

The crowd, which had been so quiet, revived itself temporarily only to watch as Smith’s pass to Vernon Davis came up nearly 7 yards short. As Smith stared forlornly, the fans then booed their team’s once-vaunted offense off the field.

The Dallas Cowboys were so enamored with LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne that they were willing to trade up eight spots to get him at No. 6 overall in Thursday’s first round of the NFL draft.

The move cost the Cowboys their No. 14 overall pick and their second-round pick — No. 45 overall — which now belong to St. Louis. But when a general manager and coach find a player they believe is the most talented at a position of need, that cost is merely a means to an end.

“Use the word elite, we think he is,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “I think he’s the most consensus pick and the most consensus move I can ever remember on our draft day.”

That’s high praise indeed, and also a clear indicator that Jones and the Cowboys don’t give a hoot about the infamous Wonderlic test. If they did, Claiborne’s decision to blow off the 50-question test given to all prospects at the NFL scouting combine might have raised a red flag or two.

“I mean, I looked on the test and wasn’t nothing on the test that came with football, so I pretty much blew the test off,” Claiborne told reporters when asked about his score of 4 — the lowest reported score in 12 years, as noted by ESPN.com The average score for NFL prospects is 21.

“We talk about the test scores, but we also talk about, ‘What is his football IQ?,’” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said. “He has instincts, he has vision, he has the ability to make plays at his position at an elite level.”

Getting that type of playmaker in the secondary was critical for a team that allowed 244 passing yards and 1.5 touchdowns per game — numbers that ranked 23rd and 16th in the NFL respectively.

Claiborne intercepted 11 passes over the last two seasons and won the Jim Thrope Award, which is given annually to college football’s best cornerback. His speed and coverage ability will help Dallas defend against NFC East quarterbacks Eli Manning, Michael Vick and Robert Griffin III,Washington’s first-round selection. But while many considered him to be the top cornerback in the draft class (he was the second player on Dallas’ draft board), the Cowboys’ move to jump up the board to grab him at No. 6 still came as quite a shock.

“I didn’t see it coming in a million. I had no idea,” Claiborne said. “We didn’t talk none, none at all. That’s why it was shocking to me when I got the phone call.”

Living up to the lofty expectations for a top-10 draft pick can be challenging enough. But then Jones compared Claiborne’s talent to that of former Dallas Cowboys cornerback Deion Sanders, who the team selected in the 1989 draft.

Sanders discussed Claiborne’s potential Friday on ESPN Dallas 103.3 FM’s “Ben and Skin Show.”

“He ain’t going to be no shutdown corner coming right out of college,” Sanders said. “I don’t even know what a shutdown corner is right now outside of Charles Woodson and Darrelle Revis. That does not exist.

“But this guy here, he should be able to start if he can pick up the scheme. It’s not about the physical ability, because you’re going to take your bumps and bruises and you’re going to get beat. That’s how you learn. That’s how you process things in the NFL.”
