Well, New York Giants fans. We are set up for a tremendous finish to Super Bowl XLVI, with the Giants trailing the New England Patriots, 10-9, at the half.

The Giants had the better of the action throughout much of the first half until the Patriots put together a Super Bowl record-tying 96-yard drive at the end of the half to take a 10-9 lead.

The Giants dominated the time of possession, 19:45 to 10:15, but could only get a safety on New England's first offensive play and a two-yard touchdown pass from Eli Manning to Victor Cruz. The Giants had a 9-0 lead in the first quarter.

Manning is 13-of-17 for 120 yards and one touchdown. Ahmad Bradshaw has 44 yards rushing on nine carries.

Tom Brady is 15-of-18 for 147 yards and one touchdown for the Patriots.

New England gets the ball to start the second half. Fasten your seat belts, Giants fans.
