2012 NFC Championship Score Update: Eli Manning Finds Victor Cruz, Bear Pascoe On Touchdown Drive

The rain is coming down on both the New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers in the 2012 NFC Championship Game, but both teams are doing their level best to play through the weather. The Giants got things untracked on offense on their third drive of the da — thanks, as usual, to Eli Manning and Victor Cruz — and scored a touchdown to tie the game at 7-7.

This bomb to Cruz was the play that keyed the possession. It went for 36 yards, the longest play of the Giants' day.

Manning would eventually find Bear Pascoe for the scoring touchdown pass at the end of the drive.

Cruz and Hakeem Nicks, both 1,000-yard receivers in the regular season, have been important for the Giants early on, with each making three receptions. Cruz' have gone for 54 yards, while Nicks' three have covered 26 yards.
