SAN FRANCISCO -- The New York Giants must like overtime in NFC Championship Games -- at least recently.
It was good to them again Sunday.
For the second time in the past five years, the Giants advanced to the Super Bowl with a dramatic overtime victory over the San Francisco 49ers, winning 20-17. They won when Lawrence Tynes nailed a 31-yard field goal to win it when Kyle Williams lost a fumble on a punt in the overtime to set it up.The Giants advanced to the Super Bowl XLVI to play the New England Patriots -- a rematch of the Super Bowl XLII, which was won by the Giants.
Sunday's game was tied at 17 at the end of regulation before the Giants won it in the extra period.
