Super Bowl XLVI Score Update: Giants On The Board First With A Safety

The New York Giants got on the board first in Super Bowl XLVI by scoring two points on a safety. After the Giants were stopped on their first drive down the field, punter Steve Weatherford was able to pin the Patriots deep back in their own zone. Tom Brady and the Patriots offense took over at the six-yard line. On the first play, Brady faked a hand off to BenJarvus Green-Ellis and then dropped back into the end zone looking for a receiver. He couldn't find one and just as Justin Tuck hit him, Brady threw a pass deep to nobody.

The referees talked about it and threw a flag for intentional grounding and since Brady was in the end zone, it resulted in a safety.
