Super Bowl XLVI Score Update: Lawrence Tynes Brings Giants Within Two

We're nearly through three quarters of play in Super Bowl XLVI, and while it appears that the New York Giants might be close to recapturing the momentum, the New England Patriots still cling to a two-point lead.

After the Giants forced a Patriots' punt, New York actually started out on the Patriots' side of the field. The Giants caught a bit of a break on one play, when Eli Manning found Hakeem Nicks in the middle of the field. Nicks made a couple of moves, but got the ball stripped away. Fortunately, Giants' fullback Henry Hynoski was in the right place at the right time, and immediately fell on the ball for New York.

A sack of Manning by Nick Minkovich, however, stalled the Giants' efforts, and they had to settle for another field goal from Lawrence Tynes, this one a 33-yarder to make the score 17-15 in favor of the Patriots.

That's where we stand as we go into the fourth quarter of play, folks. Looks like we're in for a fantastic finish in this one!
