After a 9-0 first quarter that saw the New York Giants absolutely dominate the New England Patriots, the Pats have finally begun to show life in their offensive game. A safety and Victor Cruz Touchdown paced the scoring until the very start of the second quarter when the Patriots finally got on the board thanks to a short range field goal.
The scoring remained stagnant after that as both teams traded drives through the midfield, but the Patriots finally got themselves into scoring position with a classic Tom Brady drive after the two minute warning which led to the first and only score of the second quarter. With 15 seconds remaining, Tom Brady tossed it to Danny Woodhead in the end zone for a five yard score.
Brady's 96 yard drive in the last two minutes ties for the longest Super Bowl scoring drive in the history of the game. The Pats will get the ball for the start of the second half.
