The Giants are going to the Super Bowl. Say it. Now, say it again. The Blue advanced to their fifth Super Bowl in team history with a 20-17 overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers at Candlestick Park last night and will now face the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI on Feb 5 in Indianapolis. QB Eli Manning played like the champion he is, fending off a never-ending 49ers’ pass rush to throw for 316 yards and two touchdowns. WR Victor Cruz had ten catches for 142 yards and WR Devin Thomas made several key plays on special teams last night to push the Giants past the 49ers K Lawrence Tynes kicked his second career overtime NFC Championship-winning FG to put the Giants in the Super Bowl.
