Yeah, I was wondering about that, I suppose your odds of having them miss a kick are about as good as a long TD drive, but I'd rather have it in your own teams hand than hoping the other guy misses. Although, maybe they would have pulled a Westbrook and ran to the 1 and fallen over. Then they could have killed more time and probably punched it in anyways.

DT, I posted that same thing earlier in the thread. In my bracket, I have them beating NE as well (then losing to Indy).

So, if Pitt just kicks those two extra points, they force Jax to go for the TD at the end, and possibly would have sent the game into OT.

Sure looks like the Giants left everything on the Giants Stadium field from last week. I had a feeling that would happen. Not strong enough to bet TB though - I laid off because I can never figure out what the Giants are going to bring.

To easy... Tampa needs to stop going for the ball and start going for the tackle.

That's just one of the many "ifs" from the Steelers "game plan" - and yes I use that word very, very loosely

All their troubles throughout the season showed through yesterday, as it usually does in the playoff rounds. The Steelers have many concerns on both sides of the ball and with the coaching staff. I was trying to enjoy last night's game as much as possible because it looks like they might need a few more years to be a "true" playoff team again.

And just like that, it all turns around. Classic light-switch game from the G-men.

down 10 with just over 3 minutes left and TB kicks it long? I guess they're giving up

down 1 score ok but down 2 you've gotta onside kick it there

If that incomplete is reversed for an INT, game over Tampa Bay.

EDIT: Game over. Giants win!

Sorry, I got distracted counting my money.

I loved watching those jokers at Fox unanimously pick the Bucs. I wasn't sure about my pick until then.

Good overall performance by the Giants. It seemed like they had a lot of fan support in that stadium too. Should be a fun game against the Cowboys.

Joey Galloway caught 1 pass for 9 yards. That shoulder must be pretty bad.

Nobody picked the Giants to win. Booyah!

I don't care what they do next week against the Cowboys. I don't have to sit here and listen to these freakin' Bucs fans overrate their team for another week. Thank God.

Rivers throwing a wet ball today could be interesting.

Collinsworth picked the Giants. I picked the Giants. And they were less than 3-point underdogs on the road, which means a great deal of bettors picked them as well.
