Giants-Steelers score update: New York, Pittsburgh scoreless after 1st quarter

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The Giant offense has struggled to move the ball, as New York and Pittsburgh are tied after one quarter of play.

The New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers are tied 0-0 after one quarter of play.

New York won the coin toss, and elected to receive the ball. Eli Manning and the Giants' offense, however, were completely ineffective for their first two drives, as the quarterback only completed one of his five pass attempts over the first two drives for 17 yards.

Fortunately for the Giants, the Steelers' offense also struggled to move the ball during its first two drives of the game. The Pittsburgh offense collected four first downs during its first two drives compared to just two for New York, but could not gain enough yards to put itself in scoring position.

On the third Giants drive of the game, Eli Manning completed a 41-yard pass to Victor Cruz -- easily the best play of the quarter for New York. Manning then followed up the play by throwing an interception to Ike Taylor, attempting to connect with Cruz again.

The interception gave Pittsburgh its best field position of the game, placing the ball near midfield at the Pittsburgh 42-yard line. The Steelers ended the first quarter driving the ball into New York territory.
