San Francisco 49ers leading the New York Giants by 14-10 with the 49ers getting the ball back after stopping the Giants on downs. The worst thing that can happen is a fumbled punt by a professional football player in a critical game. The play wasn't exactly a fumbled punt but the returned failed to get out of the way of the ball.
The play that could change the momentum of the game, especially in the 4th quarter of the game. The ball clearly hits the knee of the 49er player and then returned for a touchdown, but touchdown did not count because of a blown whistle. In all, instead of 49ers getting the ball, the Giants get the ball in 49er territory so we will see if this punt muff determines if the 49ers win the game or with the momentum swing, the Giants come from behind. Manning throws for a touchdown to put the Giants in the lead following the fumbled punt.
