Super Bowl 2012 Halftime Score: Patriots Take 10-9 Lead On Record-Tying Touchdown Drive

It was bound to happen sooner or later: the New England Patriots finally got the sort of methodical touchdown drive they've made their trademark throughout the 2011 NFL season, with Tom Brady slicing and dicing the New York Giants and finding Danny Woodhead for a touchdown to cap a 96-yard drive that tied the Super Bowl record for longest drive and gave the Patriots a 10-9 lead heading into halftime.

After being pinned at their own 4 by a great Steve Weatherford punt and backed up their own 2 by a penalty, the Patriots clicked off a brutally efficient drive to take their first lead of the game. Brady completed 10 straight passes on the drive, and snuck a pass to Woodhead to complete it, despite Jason Pierre-Paul's best efforts.

You can see Pierre-Paul, on the left side of the Giants' line, break off his pass rush to drop into coverage. That turned out to be a bad decision.
