NFL Championship Sunday: AFC – NFC Crown New Champions

For the seventh consecutive year, we have new NFL Conference Champions in both the NFC and the AFC. Congratulations are in order for the New England Patriots and the New York Giants as their Championship Sunday victories have propelled them into Super Bowl XLVI. The big game goes Sunday, February 5, 2012, at  6:29 PM ET from Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana.

New England Patriots Hang On – Defeat The Baltimore Ravens

It wasn’t pretty but the New England Patriots are headed back to the Super Bow for the fifth time in eleven years – thanks to a 23-20 win over the Baltimore Ravens. Backup cornerback Sterling Moore stripped a sure TD catch from Ravens WR Lee Evans, and then PK Billy Cundiff missed chip shot field goal, to seal the deal.

Patriots all world quarterback Tom Brady was not his usual self and later told the media “Well, I sucked pretty bad today, but our defense saved us.” Hey, a win is a win and it’s on to Indianapolis for Bill Belichick and the Brady Bunch.

New York Giants Get Their Kicks in OT – Eliminate The San Francisco 49ers

Over in the National Football Conference Championship the Giants and 49ers kicked the drama up a notch higher. New York took advantage of a muffed punt return to grab a 20-17 OT win over San Francisco. In a low scoring game, that was tied twice and had three lead changes, a Lawrence Tynes 31 yard field goal at 7:06 in OT sent Big Blue back to the Super Bowl for the second time in five years.

After neither team scored on their first possession in OT, the Giants second shot ended with a punt that was fumbled by 49ers backup kick returner Kyle Williams. The G-Men recovered the ball at the Niners 24 yard line setting up the winning field goal five plays later.

This New York Giants vs. New England Patriots Super Bowl XLVI contest is a rematch of Super Bowl XLII and we all know how that went down. Round Two should be a beauty!
