The New York Giants just showed why they were Super Bowl champions last year with a big-time touchdown and two-point conversion to tie the game at 28-all with 3:21 left.
The Giants scored their touchdown with 3:21 left on Brandon Jacobs' 1-yard run, which came after Ken Lucas had a pass interference penalty. The Panthers had several chances to stop New York during the drive, but Eli Manning converted every time.
On the two-point play, Lucas got burned again, as Manning hit a cutting Domenik Hixon in front of Lucas for the successful conversion.
The Panthers do have the wind at their backs. When they get the ball back, they will have slightly more than three minutes left and all their timeouts. But if they don't make a first down or two, the Giants will also have a chance to win this game in regulation. If no one scores, we'll be going to overtime.
