After beating the 49ers last night, the New York Giants secured their spot and are now headed to Indianapolis to take on the New England Patriots at Super Bowl XLVI. This year’s Super Bowl takes takes place on February 5th. Here’s a blurb from FoxSports:
Five plays after the 49ers’ Kyle Williams fumbled a punt, Tynes kicked a 31-yard field goal in overtime, sending the Giants to the Super Bowl with a 20-17 victory over San Francisco in the NFC championship game Sunday.
In another tight one in this decades-old postseason rivalry, both defenses made key stops before New York capitalized on a rare mistake in San Francisco’s resurgent season. Williams’ blunder put the Giants in perfect position for another sensational finish in a season full of them.
”That was a tough game. We had to fight for every yard that we got,” Giants quarterback Eli Manning said. ”Defense was outstanding, special teams getting us two turnovers was huge. That led to 10 points.”
