VIDEO: Second Touchdown Pass From Alex Smith To Vernon Davis Gives 49ers 14-10 Lead

The San Francisco 49ers are hosting the New York Giants in the 2012 NFC Championship Game. The 49ers lead by a score of 14-10 in the third quarter following the second touchdown of the game by Vernon Davis.

The 49ers got the ball back midway through the third quarter. Kyle Williams made the best return by either team thus far, running the New York punt back 24 yards to the San Francisco 46.

Frank Gore took the first-down handoff and picked up a couple of yards up the middle. On the next play, Smith hooked up with Gore for a 24-yard pass that took the Niners inside the New York 30-yard line. On the next play, Smith heaved another deep pass to Vernon Davis in the end zone for the second touchdown of the night for the pair, giving the 49ers the 14-10 lead.
