Super Bowl 2008

Finally, we know which teams will be playing in the SuperBowl. On February 3rd, the New England Patriots will play the New York Giants for the right to be called Super Bowl Champions. The New England Patriots beat the San Diego Charges 21-12, making this the Patriots fourth trip in seven years to the Super Bowl. The Patriots are a perfect 18-0 this season.

The New York Giants upset the Green Bay Packers 23-20 in OT. After a Corey Webster's interception, Lawrence Tynes who missed two previous field goals, one that would have won the game at the end of regulation, kicked the winning field goal in overtime. Tynes' third time was a charm.

The Super Bowl is a rematch between the Patriots and Giants who played each other on December 29th. The Giants led the Patriots by 12 points in the third quarter before losing 38-35. We'll see if the Patriots can go undefeated to a perfect 19-0 record. I hope the Super Bowl lives up to the hype, I'll be watching.
