With 26 seconds left in the game, Eli Manning delivers, and throws a 12 yard TD pass in the NY Giants 30-27 win over the San Francisco 49ers.

Eli Manning is clutch! On a bruising Carlos Hyde 2 yard TD run, the San Francisco 49ers came from behind to take a 27-23 lead.  The 49ers left Eli with only 1:45 to drive the length of the field.  Manning, coolly led the Giants on an 8 play 82 yard drive that was capped off when Manning threw a perfect, 12 yard strike over the hands of two 49er defenders and into the hands of third year tight end Larry Donnell for the game winning TD.  On the drive, Odell Beckham Jr. returned from an early injury to draw a pass interference call deep in 49er’s territory.
