Giants Vs. 49ers, 2012 NFC Championship Game: New York Begins Second Half With Three-And-Out

In this 2012 NFC Championship Game, the New York Giants have either been able to move the ball into San Francisco territory or unable to move the ball very much at all against the San Francisco 49ers. Their first drive of the second half would certainly fall into the latter category.

After two Ahmad Bradshaw runs, the Giants decided to throw on third-and-one, but Eli Manning could not find anyone, forcing New York to punt. It was Steve Weatherford's fourth punt of the day.

The Niners, gashed by Victor Cruz in the first half, managed not to get burned by the salsa-happy Giants wideout on the first drive of the third quarter.
