The Browns had another good drive to start the second quarter, which was capped by a short Phil Dawson field goal. Eli Manning continued his precision passing despite tight coverage by the Browns' secondary. The secondary did hold tough to hold the Giants to a field goal, making it a 17-10 game. After Cleveland was driving again, though Brandon Weeden made a poor decision on 3rd-and-1 that was intercepted.
A few plays later, Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for a touchdown, tying the game at 17-17. Things kept going south from there. Joshua Cribbs fumbled the ensuing kickoff, and the Giants proceeded to add ten more points before it was all said and done. The Giants lead 27-17 heading into the second half.
