Hakeem Nicks came up with the two biggest plays of the game for the Giants offense, including a 37-yard stunner right as time expired in the first half.
Ahmad Bradshaw set up the Giants, who had no timeouts, with a 23-yard run. Bradshaw started left, then cut back to the right and somehow got out of bounds with six seconds left.
Eli Manning then lofted the ball to the end zone, where Nicks out-leapt everyone and came down with the ball. The touchdown put the Giants up by 10 points instead of three.
Nicks had previously caught a 66-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He took a big hit and stayed on his feet before turning on the jets like he did last week against Atlanta.
Nicks had 165 yards receiving on seven catches, and he now has four touchdowns and two 100-yard games in the first two playoff games of his career.
Manning threw for 330 yards and three touchdowns. It was his first career 300-yard passing game in the postseason.
Immediately after a field goal put New York up 10, Kenny Phillips stripped Ryan Grant to set up the Giants with a touchdown, extending their lead to 17 in the fourth.
