The 30-12 final score of the New York Giants’ loss to the San Francisco 49ers on Thursday night is somewhat misleading. On the one hand, the 49ers seemed to be more or less in control of the game from the start - there was never a moment when the Giants’ win probability even came remotely close to 50%. On the other hand, the Giants fought valiantly all night and kept the game close through three quarters. With five minutes remaining in the third quarter they trailed only 17-12. San Francisco slowly pulled away after that.
