Giants extend lead to 23-3 over 49ers

The New York Giants lead the San Francisco 49ers, 23-3, after the third quarter at Candlestick Park on Sunday.

David Wilson put the Giants in great field position with a 66-yard kickoff return to open the half. The Giants took advantage of the short field with a seven-play, 32-yard touchdown scoring drive that took 3:12 off the clock. Ahmad Bradshaw capped the drive with a one-yard touchdown run.

After the Bradshaw touchdown, Antrel Rolle set up field goals on New York's next two drives with interceptions of Alex Smith. After the Lawrence Tynes field goals from 30 and 22 yards, respectively, the Giants' lead was extended to 23-3. After the second field goal, the Giants' defense stood tall after a deep pass to Randy Moss had the 49ers down to the Giants 29. The 49ers tried to use Colin Kaepernick at quarterback to mix things up and he was promptly sacked for a loss of 11 yards. After the big loss, the 49ers eventually tried to go for it on fourth down and were denied.


Giants lead 49ers at halftime, 10-3

The New York Giants lead the San Francisco 49ers at halftime, 10-3, in a rematch of last season's NFC Championship game. Defenses have played especially well in this game as expected, with neither offensive unit particularly having its way in the first half.

San Francisco scored its only points in the first quarter, when the 49ers had just two offensive drives and both ending in field goal attempts. David Akers missed a 43-yard field goal after the first drive, but was successful on the second attempt from 42 yards out.

Then the Giants went on a run in the second quarter. Eli Manning hit Victor Cruz for a six-yard touchdown pass to cap a seven-play, 67-yard drive. Lawrence Tynes converted on a 34-yard field goal in the last three minutes of the second quarter to extend the Giants' lead.

Tynes attempted a 40-yard field goal toward the end of the half, but it was blocked. A 32-yard completion from Alex Smith to former Giants receiver Mario Manningham put Akers in position for a 52-yard attempt, which was no good.
