The New York Giants tied the game at 7 following an Eli Manning 6-yard touchdown pass to tight end Bear Pascoe. Manning had to improvise his throw on the touchdown. He has had success with improvisation so far in the first half and especially on the touchdown drive.
Pascoe had zero touchdowns and only 12 receptions during the regular season. For the Giants, his first touchdown couldn't have come at a better time. The catch capped a 10-play, 69-yard drive for the Giants.
The Giants had trailed 7-0 after the first quarter. The only score in the first frame came on a 73-yard touchdown pass reception by 49ers tight end Vernon Davis.
