Patriots’ pass rush shuts down Giants’ first drive

INDIANAPOLIS — The Giants’ first drive started out with promise, with Eli Manning marching them inside the Patriots’ 40-yard line.

New England’s pass rush shut down the drive, however, with sacks by¬†Brandon Deaderick and Mark Anderson, knocking New York out of field-goal range. The Giants had the ball for just under six minutes but didn’t score.

Steve Weatherford punted, pinning Tom Brady & Co. at the 6-yard line.
