49ers Vs. Giants, NFC Championship Game Score Update: New York Leads 10-7 At Halftime

The San Francisco 49ers are hosting the New York Giants in the 2012 NFC Championship Game. After the first half, the Giants currently lead by a score of 10-7.

The 49ers jumped out to an early lead in the first quarter on a 73-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith to Vernon Davis. The Giants tied things up early in the second quarter when Eli Manning threw a 6-yard pass to Bear Pascoe for a New York touchdown. The score remained tied until the final five seconds of the half, when Lawrence Tynes nailed a 31-yard field goal to put the Giants on top, 10-7.

The teams seem fairly evenly matched, with the disparity coming on the passing games of the two teams. Smith only has six passing yards other than the touchdown pass to Davis, while Manning and receiver Victor Cruz have basically been on fire since the rain stopped in the second quarter. Manning has 181 passing yards in the half, while Cruz has 125 receiving yards.
