New, comments

The Giants got off to a great start, forcing Tom Brady into a safety via penalty on the Patriots' first offensive drive. They followed that up with a crisp touchdown-scoring drive as Eli Manning connected with Victor Cruz. The Patriots proceeded to march down the field, but the Giants' defense came up with a stop and forced a field goal to make it 9-3 Giants. The Giants seemed to be in control of the half, but the Patriots got the ball back for a two-minute drill and marched all the way down the field -- 14 plays, 96 yards, for the go-ahead touchdown. It is 10-9 Patriots heading into halftime.
