Super Bowl XLVI Score Update: Lawrence Tynes Answers With A Field Goal

The New York Giants have cut into the New England Patriots' lead in Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis, but not as deeply as they would have hoped.

The Giants got a nice kickoff return to start their drive at their own 35-yard line, and from there proceeded to go 45 yards in 10 plays, taking 4:37 off of the clock. On a 3rd-and-10 from the New England 25, Eli Manning connected with Mario Manningham for five yards, which brought up a fourth down and led to a 37-yard Lawrence Tynes field goal. With that, the score went to 17-12 with 6:43 left in the third quarter of play.

Thus far, both quarterbacks have been brilliant. Eli Manning is currently 18-of-24 for 153 yards and a touchdown. Tom Brady has been even better, completing 20-of-23 passes for 201 yards and two scores.

The Patriots are setting up at their own 17-yard line with about six and a half minutes left in the third quarter, and they lead the New York Giants, 17-12, in Super Bowl XLVI.
