Player of the Game: Victor Cruz

In a season that was dominated by offense, it was the defense of the Giants and 49ers that prevailed, sending the two teams on a collision course at The Stick and a shot at the Super Bowl. And while Alex Smith continues his "I'm not a bust" vindication tour, it's Eli Manning who steps up big-time in this game, throwing for 303 yards and two touchdowns in the Giants 23-19 victory. Victor Cruz was a beast for New York all game long, catching seven passes for 103 yards, including a 31-yard touchdown in the third quarter that proved to be the difference in the game.
