The New England Patriots have just beaten the Baltimore Ravens, 23-20, to advance to Super Bowl XLVI. They did so thanks to former Buffalo Bills wide receiver Lee Evans, who dropped a potential game-winning touchdown pass with less than 30 seconds remaining in the contest. I had no idea how to feel during that play; how did y'all react?
The Pats will face the winner of the NFC Championship Game, set to kick off in moments. There, the New York Giants - fresh off of upsetting the Green Bay Packers - will travel to the left coast to take on the host San Francisco 49ers, who have been season-long upstarts.
This is your open discussion thread for the second game of the day. Which team are you rooting for? Which team do you believe presents the Patriots with a better match-up?
