Big half for Victor Cruz as Giants take lead in San Francisco

Giants receiver Victor Cruz has been the best player on the field in San Francisco this evening, and his team is a half away from the Super Bowl.

Cruz has eight catches for 125 yards at the half, giving the Giants a 10-7 lead over the 49ers. San Francisco’s defense has had one of the great games we’ve come to expect from the 49ers — other than when Eli Manning is throwing to Cruz.

For the 49ers, most of the offense came on one play, a 73-yard touchdown pass from Alex Smith to Vernon Davis on which Davis tiptoed his way down the sideline and into the end zone (where he picked up a penalty for excessive celebration). Take away that pass, and Smith is 1-for-6 for six yards passing.

Heading into the second half this game is wide open. But if the 49ers want to head to the Super Bowl, they need to find a way to stop Cruz.

    Eli can play above the refs. Alex Smith isn’t there yet. Hopefully, the Giants win.

    Joe Flacco says that Victor Cruz is getting too much media attention.

    Where’s the outrage about Vernon Davis getting a 15 yard penalty after his TD? If that’s Stevie Johnson the announcers are outraged but apparently no problem with Vernon Davis doing it?

    Victor Cruz is a stud!
