The San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants have faced off 39 times since 1952.
It's gameday as Week 10 of the NFL season is upon us as the San Francisco 49ers are set to host Eli Manning and the New York Giants. You know the drill. Keep it here throughout the game for news, notes and highlights as the 49ers try to get their first win of the season.
San Francisco's offense will get a huge lift with the return of Joe Staley. The 49ers allowed 16 quarterback hits and five sacks in Week 9 against the Arizona Cardinals. Improving in pass protection will be vital for the 49ers on Sunday.
K'Waun Williams is also back in the lineup after missing two games with a quad injury. He'll likely reassume his role as the 49ers starting nickel corner.
Here are the 49ers inactives: Solomon Thomas, Elijah Lee, Aaron Lynch, George Kittle, Trent Taylor, Darrell Williams Jr., and Pita Taumoepenu.
And for the Giants: B.J. Goodson, Devon Kennard, Keenan Robinson, Davis Webb, Travis Rudolph, Donte Deayon and Chad Wheeler.
