Tonight's game

November 30, 1998

N.Y. Giants (4-7) at San Francisco (8-3)

Time: 8: 20, chs. 2, 7.

Line: 49ers by 13.

Vs. spread: Giants 4-7; 49ers 3-8.

Outlook: Remember when this matchup was something to get excited about? This year, you'll be lucky to make it to halftime awake. So will the Giants, who have lost three of their past four. The 49ers are still the 49ers, but they're in second place and looking at a wild card. Still, QB Steve Young is more than enough to beat the Giants by himself, and this might be the perfect opportunity to smooth things over with pouting WR Jerry Rice.

Notable: Young is 85-31 since becoming the 49ers' starter in 1991.


GIANTS: Probable: WR Ike Hilliard (ankle); DE Cedric Jones (knee); LB Pete Monty (knee); WR David Patten (back); S Brandon Sanders (knee); DE Michael Strahan (back).

49ERS: Out: DE Brentson Buckner (ankle); CB Antonio Langham (knee). Doubtful: CB Marquez Pope (ankle). Questionable: LB Lee Woodall (rib). Probable: WR Jerry Rice (knee); K Wade Richey (heal); DT Bryant Young (shoulder).
