Week 3 of the NFL season kicked off Thursday with the San Francisco 49ers taking down the New York Giants (1-2) at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

Daniel Jones and the Giants were coming off a wild second-half comeback over Arizona in Week 2 that arguably saved their entire season, seeing as they had been outscored 60-0 in six quarters to open the season prior to the narrow win.

On the other side, Brock Purdy & Co. remain undefeated atop the NFC West. Both teams were without a key offensive catalyst, as Giants running back Saquon Barkley (ankle) and 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk (shoulder) were out due to injury.

Here are the top moments!

Giants vs. 49ers highlights

3s on the board

San Francisco methodically brought the ball down the field and got into the red zone to open the game, but it was held to a 28-yard field goal from Jake Moody. New York then moved the ball on its first drive but settled for a 44-yard field goal from Graham Gano.

Nobody blocked him

49ers star defensive end Nick Bosa got his first sack of the season late in the first quarter when he had an open lane to Jones and took the Giants quarterback to the ground.

 

 

 

Getting ’em down in bounds

A pair of screen passes on two third-and-longs to wide receiver Deebo Samuel and running back Christian McCaffrey — which combined for 47 yards — helped the 49ers get into the red zone early in the second quarter. Then on a third-and-5 from the New York 9-yard line, Purdy hit wide receiver Ronnie Bell, who got his feet in bounds near the pylon for the San Francisco touchdown.

 

San Fran doing what it does

Faced with a third-and-12 on the Giants’ 20-yard line, Purdy hit tight end George Kittle, who maneuvered his way through the defense for another 49ers first down; Giants defensive lineman Leonard Williams was flagged for roughing the passer, putting the ball on the 4-yard line. On the very next play, McCaffrey ran in a 4-yard score.

Giants steal 3

A 17-yard completion from Jones to wide receiver Darius Slayton got the Giants in 49ers territory on the ensuing possession, helping them get in range for Gano, who connected on a 57-yard field goal with 13 seconds remaining in the first half.

HALFTIME – 49ers 17, Giants 6

The 49ers controlled the first half, maintaining possession for 20 minutes and outgaining the Giants 242-88 in total yards. McCaffrey made NFL history in the first half. According to FOX Sports Research, McCaffrey’s rushing score made it 12 consecutive games that he has reached the end zone (including the playoffs). If he scores next week, McCaffrey will break a tie with Jerry Rice (1987) for the most consecutive games with a touchdown in 49ers history.

Giants take advantage

The Giants and 49ers each punted on their first possessions of the second half. Then a fair catch interference penalty on Shemar Jean-Charles put the ball on the San Francisco 37-yard line for New York.

On the second play of the drive, 49ers defensive back Deommodore Lenoir was penalized for pass interference. One play later, Matt Breida powered in an 8-yard touchdown run for the Giants. They failed to convert a two-point conversion, though.

Deebo keeps going

On the first play of the ensuing drive, Samuel somehow evaded four tackle attempts en route to a 40-yard pickup. The drive ended with a 21-yard field goal from Moody. San Francisco led 20-12 with 4:08 remaining in the third quarter.

They just won’t go down

After forcing a Giants three-and-out, the 49ers put together another field-goal drive, which was set up by a 29-yard completion from Purdy to Kittle — who put a stiff-arm on safety Xavier McKinney and kept going through the New York secondary on the play.

Finding Deebo

San Francisco forced another New York three-and-out, and then it took a three-score lead. On the eighth play of the next drive, Purdy hit a contested Samuel for a 27-yard touchdown. The 49ers led 30-12 with 5:58 remaining in the fourth quarter.

INT for good measure

Jones had his pass tipped multiple times, and 49ers safety Talanoa Hufanga ultimately came down with the interception.

Commissioner of Police in Ogun State, CP Abiodun Alamutu, affirmed the progress, stating, “Aside from those licensed to bear firearms, no other person is permitted to possess them. Anyone found in possession of firearms after this will be treated as a criminal.”

He emphasized the importance of ongoing profiling and the forthcoming stage of the program, which will involve the public parading of those who have renounced their involvement in cult activities.

“After adequately profile them, they’ll be paraded. What we will encourage members of the community so that they don’t treat them as outcast because we know from experience that some of them found themselves in this fold , it was after they have been entrapped in it, they now understand what cultism is and it’s never easy to opt out because of fear of attack. Now that they’re bold enough to surrender what we should do is to reintegrate them as legitimate and law abiding members of the community .”

Acknowledging the complexities surrounding cultism, the Akarigbo of Remo Land Oba Babatunde Ajayi emphasized the need for community engagement and support in facilitating the reintegration of former cult members.

 

 

 

He highlighted the collaborative efforts between the community, law enforcement, and armed forces in addressing the security challenges and expressed optimism in the willingness of surrendered individuals to contribute positively to society.

Special Adviser to the Ogun State Government on Security Matters, Olusola Zubair, commended the collective endeavour that led to the surrender of arms, attributing it to the perseverance and resilience of all stakeholders involved.

He underscored the potential for replicating such initiatives in other areas grappling with similar issues, emphasizing the paramount importance of peace for sustainable development.

“We know that development can only strive where there’s an atmosphere of peace and that’s what we’re clamouring for here. I want to use this opportunity to appeal to all other sectors of this state that what we are doing in sagamu today, is doable in other places also . I want to thank the Governor of Ogun State for giving us that support .

“I want to say this is not all the arms that they have been using but just as the Akarigbo said , it’s a continuous process , we are still in that process of recovering these firearms and am sure that most of them will know now that crime doesn’t pay so it is better to live in peace . All of us should live in unity and that’s what will bring development to our state.”

The Director of Department State Services (DSS) Folashade Adekayajo represented by Deputy Director of Operations and Intelligence, Sikiru Kolawole, echoed the call for individuals involved in cult activities to embrace peace and renounce violence.

He emphasized the crucial role of community members in providing information to aid law enforcement efforts in curbing criminal activities.
