Niners Nation Prediction: 49ers win 17-10

And so after a bye week, the 49ers return to the field with Vernon Davis playing and Alex Smith not. They spent much of the off time trying to solve the offenses woes. Now we get to see what comes of that. The offense was performing best in the last game The Disease played in, so hopefully he can bring back some of that explosiveness.
I've gone with a relatively low-scoring prediction and think yet again, the only way for the 49ers to win is to shut down the Giants offense. Keep an eye on Jeremy Shockey as he could definitely be a guy who makes things happen for the Giants. We lack a shutdown cover linebacker, so it'll take some big time team work to keep him from tearing our defense apart.
