The Giants are going to the Super Bowl, thanks to Lawrence Tynes’ 47-yarder to seal the deal in the 2nd ever overtime in NFC Championship history!!
The Giants, seeded number 5 in the NFC Playoffs, knocked off three division winners, two first-round-bye teams, and all while on the road in hostile crowds in Tampa, Dallas, and Green Bay, while brutal weather conditions in Green Bay also.
The Giants have advanced to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2000, when they lost to the Baltimore Ravens, a wild card team at the time.
Eli Manning continued his playoff success with another interception-less game and he hasn’t thrown a pick since week 17 of the regular season.
A lot of credit should go to Steve Spagnuolo and what he did with the Giants defense this season. He turned them around from 0-2 and trying to find out who goes where to Champions of the National Football Conference and headed to Arizona for Super Bowl XLII. How does that happen? Wow.
The running back position has stayed together this year, whether it was Jacobs’ injury earlier this year, Ward’s injury 3/4 through the season, or Bradshaw’s emergence as a rookie, this squad has gone through several ups and downs this year and they were able to fight it out and have a successful season.
I’ll have more posted soon, but for now, the GIANTS ARE NFC CHAMPIONS AND WILL HAVE A REMATCH WITH THE NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS IN TWO WEEKS!
