NFL Playoff Scores: New England Patriots, New York Giants Advance To Super Bowl

In case you missed it on Sunday, the New England Patriots and New York Giants are headed to the 2012 Super Bowl, reprising their Super Bowl XLII matchup in February 2008.

To get there, the Patriots beat the Baltimore Ravens 23-20 on Sunday. Joe Flacco threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns but threw an interception in the fourth quarter. And Billy Cundiff badly missed a 32-yard field goal that would have tied the game with just seconds remaining. Watching the Patriots in the Super Bowl is never fun, but at least Steelers fans can enjoy a bit of schadenfreude at Ravens fans' expense.

The Giants, meanwhile, knocked off the San Francisco 49ers, 20-17, in overtime. Eli Manning threw for 316 yards and two touchdowns on 58 attempts, and Victor Cruz had 10 catches for 142 yards. In overtime, San Francisco's Kyle Williams fumbled a punt, giving the Giants great field position, and Lawrence Tynes kicked a game-winning, 31-yard field goal.
