The Super Bowl Is Set

NBC got what they wanted yesterday as the New York Giants and New England Patriots both punched their tickets to Indianapolis thanks to late game plays made by kickers.

The Patriots made it to the big game thanks to a missed kick wide left by Billy Cundiff of the Ravens, where the Giants got in thanks to Lawrence Tynes nailing one from 31 yards out.

If the script seems eerily familiar that’s because we all saw this story before, as these two teams faced off Feb. 3, 2008 in Glendale, Ariz. We all know what happened back then, but as every boxing promoter will tell you, the money is always in the rematch.
