49ers Vs. Giants, Third Quarter Update: Second TD Connection Between Alex Smith, Vernon Davis Gives 49ers 14-10 Lead

The San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants are only one quarter away from the Super Bowl, and it's going to be a tight one down the stretch. But another Alex Smith to Vernon Davis connection have pushed the Niners ahead once

again, taking a 14-10 lead into the fourth quarter at Candlestick Park.
Both offenses came out struggling, trading punts to begin the second half. But Alex Smith and the 49ers got good field position around the 50 after a short Sean Weatherford punt. A 21-yard check-down to Frank Gore would set up a Vernon Davis 28 yard touchdown reception to give the 49ers back the lead with about six minutes left in the quarter.

The 49ers finished the quarter driving, including a defensive personal foul to set them up nicely in Giants territory.
Smith is 7/15 for 145 with two TD's, Frank Gore has 13 carries for 67 yards, while Vernon leads the way through the air with 101 yards on only two catches.
