Despite a poor first half, the New England Patriots went into halftime of Super Bowl XLVI up 10-9 over the New York Giants. The Giants dominated the first half, holding the ball for 19 minutes to the Patriots’ 6 minutes with 4 minutes to go in the half. Then the Patriot offense got into a rhythm, and marched 96 yards down the field to score a touchdown to take the lead. TE Rob Gronkowski looked to move well enough but didn’t have a catch until a 20-yarder in that final drive.

The Giants have been able to move the football with some relative ease but haven’t been able to finish drives. The Giants struck first with a safety when Brady threw the ball deep down the middle to no one from the end zone, resulting with a safety. The Giants were then able to score a touchdown with an Eli-to-Victor Cruz connection. The Patriots were then able to start to get their rhythm.

Here are some halftime stats:

Tom Brady: 15/18, 147 yards, 1 TD

Danny Woodhead: 5 rushes for 13 yards; 3 catches for 23 yards and a TD

Aaron Hernandez: 5 catches for 40 yards

Eli Manning: 13/17, 120 yards, 1 TD

Ahmad Bradshaw: 9 rushes for 44 yards

Hakeem Nicks: 3 catches for 42 yards
