|Lawrence Tynes sends the Giants to Super Bowl XLVI|
Overall, the Giants played a solid game on both sides of the ball, but will need to improve on running the ball offensively, and stopping the run defensively. The Giants struggled for most of the game running the ball. Brandon Jacobs and Ahmad Bradshaw were stopped for very little yardage on nearly every run. Defensively, the Giants had a hard time stopping Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter. If the Giants are going to win the Super Bowl, they will need to be able to not only run on the Patriots defense, but also prevent running back BenJarvus Green-Ellis from gaining significant yards on the ground.
One area in which the Giants excelled for most of the game was their passing game. Eli Manning picked apart the potent San Francisco defense throwing for two touchdowns and over 300 yards. Manning had a good connection with Victor Cruz who had ten catches for over 140 yards. If Manning can pick apart the Patriots defense like he did the 49ers, the Giants will have a good chance to beat the Pats in the Super Bowl.
