49ers Vs. Giants, NFC Championship: Alex Smith, Vernon Davis Connect For 2nd TD, 49ers Lead 14-10 [VIDEO]

The San Francisco 49ers offense was sputtering against the New York Giants, but broke out late in the third quarter with another deep pass from Vernon Davis to Alex Smith, to take back the lead 14-10 in the NFC Championship at Candlestick Park.

After a nice check-down to Frank Gore for 21 yards, the Niners found themselves deep in Giants territory. Vernon ran a very similar route to his 73 yard catch earlier in the game, but would connect for a 28 yard connection, this time on the opposite side of the field:

That makes it four postseason touchdowns for Vernon now, while the Niners defense will try to lock down Eli Manning and the rest of the offense for another quarter or so to get themselves into the Super Bowl.
