Super Bowl 2012 Score Update: Giants Respond With Field Goal, Down 17-12 In The Third

The New York Giants responded to the New England Patriots with a scoring drive of their own. After starting on their own 35-yard line, Eli Manning led the Giants 45 yards on nine plays to the 20-yard line. Manning tried to hit Hakeem Nicks on a third down pass, and Nicks may have landed in bounds if not for a nasty hit by Patrick Chung.

Lawrence Tynes snuck the 37-yard field goal inside the left upright to make the score 17-12. The Pats were forced to punt on their next drive. The Giants had a slight scare when Jason Pierre-Paul left the game with an apparent head injury right before the commercial. He came back in on the next play, however, and appears to be okay.
