2012 Super Bowl Score, Giants Vs. Patriots: Victor Cruz Puts New York Up 9-0 With TD

The New England Patriots are off to a downright nightmare start in the Super Bowl. The New York Giants have had the play for 19 plays, while the Pats have had it for just one -- a safety. Following the post-safety free kick, the Giants drove down the field with ease for a touchdown, though they were given one gift by the Patriots. The Giants lead by a score of 9-0, thanks to a touchdown by Victor Cruz.

The biggest play on the 10-play, 78-yard drive was a massive run by Ahmad Bradshaw, who ripped off a 24-yard rush to get the Giants well into field goal range. New England almost forced a turnover and prevented a score, but a Cruz fumble on third down in the red zone was undone by a 12 men on the field penalty. That gave the Giants first and goal, and they converted with a TD pass to Cruz.
