Niners linebacker Chris Borland is having himself a season. The rookie defender continued his strong run of play, this time picking off Eli Manning twice as San Francisco outlasted the New York Giants on Sunday. Along with 12 tackles, it was a good enough performance to secure Borland as Week 11's Pepsi Rookie of the Week.
