San Francisco rookie linebacker Chris Borland intercepted a fourth-down pass by Eli Manning at the 49ers 2 with 4:43 to play capping a goal-line stand in a 16-10 victory Sunday that sent the error-plagued New York Giants to their fifth straight loss.
Borland had two of the 49ers' five interceptions as the Niners (6-4) survived a game in which a big advantage in time of possession and takeaways did not translate into a blowout on the scoreboard.
Colin Kaepernick threw a 48-yard touchdown pass to Michael Crabtree and Phil Dawson kicked three first-half field goals as the 49ers won their second straight on the road.
Manning threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to tight end Larry Donnell on New York's opening possession, but the reeling Giants (3-7) only got a field goal from Josh Brown the rest of the way.
