2012 Super Bowl, Giants Vs. Patriots Score Update: New England Takes 17-15 Lead Into 4th Quarter

The New England Patriots have a slim 17-15 lead over the New York Giants heading into the fourth quarter, as the Giants continue to have trouble finding their way into the end zone.

New England took a 17-9 lead early in the third quarter on a touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Aaron Hernandez. After that, New York managed to put together a couple of solid scoring drives but had to settle for field goals in or near the red zone on both occasions. Lawrence Tynes nailed both to bring New York back within two points.

Eli Manning has completed 20 of 26 passes for 178 yards and a TD for New York, while Tom Brady is 21-26 for 212 yards and two touchdowns.
