Off to Glendale
The AFC game went as expected with the Patriots dominating a banged up Chargers squad much of the game. Sure, Brady had a so so game. But their running game showed up again with Lawerence Malrony running for over 100 yards in the second half so that kept the Charger defense honest much of the second half. The Chargers were without LT since the 1st quarter so he was not a factor in the loss 21-12. So the Pats path to perfection continues on and all roads lead to Glendale, Arizona.
The NFC was a totaly different story. Now this was an exciing game. With fans from each side frozen to the gills and on the edge of thier seats waiting for who was going to make the next play.The NY Giants have been a team that has been counted out all seaon and nobody gave a shot to win a playoff game let alone make it to the the NFC Championship game after knocking off the #1 seed Dallas Cowboys.With all the fans wanted to see the Brady vs. Favre showdown. It did not happen. The defense did a very good job shuting down the GB running game. SO then the Pack was nothing but a one dimensional offense. I was so happy to see the Pack going down at ALL MIGHTY GREEN BAY.In OT after the Giants failed to make two field goals within regulation. After another Favre interception, he set Giants up with decent field position. Lawerence Tynes nailed a 47 yard game winning field goal to sent the Giants to the Super Bowl. The 1st time since 2000.
