The New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers renewed there rivalry that was very intense during the mid 1980's and early 1990's. This game was for the NFC Championship and a spot in the Super Bowl, to be played in two weeks in Indianapolis. The New York Giants defeated the San Francisco 49ers 20-17 in a overtime thriller when Giants placekicker Lawrence Tynes kicked a 31 yarder to send the G-Men to the Super Bowl.
Eli Manning won his fifth road playoff game of his career and now leads all-time. Eli Manning right now his playing his best football right now for the Giants and this team is better than the team that won the title in 2008.
The Giants will play a familiar foe, there opponent in the 2008 New England Patriots who then were going for the perfect season until the Giants knocked them off to become Super Bowl Champions. The Patriots held on to win the AFC Championship Game against the Baltimore Ravens to advance to take on the New York Giants.
The NFC Championship Game was very physical and it was played like a championship game should. They was plenty of high intensity. Giants QB Eli Manning was knocked down, sacked, and hurried numerous times in the game but he should why he is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL with his character and never give up attitude.
Besides the big touchdown play of 73 yards early in the game by the Niners TE Vernon Davis the Giants defense played championship football. They took the Niners quarterback Alex Smith out of his game and pressured him all game long. The effort by the Giants makes them 5-0 during the Super Bowl era in NFC Championship Games. The Giants hope to win their fourth Super Bowl in two weeks and they have an excellent chance against Tom Brady and company. The Giants are not affraid nor intimidated by the Patriots. It should be a great game in two weeks...
