We're back for Week 6! The 49ers continue their homestand, hosting the New York Giants in a rematch of last year's NFC Championship Game, and last year's close Week 10 battle. Both teams are right back in the thick of things this year, which could make for an exciting matchup. I'd prefer a "dull" 49ers blowout, but we'll see how this one plays out.
Today's game kicks off at 1:25pm PT, and the 49ers will look to continue building towards a sustained postseason run. We are only a third of the way through the season, but playoff positioning will become more prominent in the coming weeks. A win over the Giants would put the 49ers in a strong position in the NFC.
This game will be our third game-day in this new SB Nation United look. We'll continue providing four game threads as part of a big story stream. The stream will include the threads, but I will also mix in updates surrounding the game, including interesting GIFs and injury updates. During the game we'll have a one-up cover, which features just the stream. I've found it to be a pretty slick look for these singular events. The picture is on the left and the right side features the bullet points of stories that are part of the stream.
With a later game today, we'll have inactives at approximately noon pacific, and the first of four 49ers-Giants game threads at approximately 1:15pm PT. Before that we'll have a morning game thread at 9:45pm PT and a Sunday Night Football thread around 5pm PT.
Game Time: 1:25 p.m. PT

49ers Vs. Giants Odds
The 49ers are seven point favorites heading into today's game, with a few places offering 6 1/2 points. I do think the 49ers can cover this one, particularly at home, but it would not surprise me if this ended up a fairly close matchup. I'd much prefer the 6 1/2 points since a touchdown would win it, but I suppose I can live with hoping the 49ers can nail this one down by double digits.
