Lawrence Tynes 47-yard field goal with 12:25 left in overtime lifted the New York Giants over the Green Bay Packers, 23-20, in the NFC Championship Game at frigid Lambeau Field. Tynes had a chance to win it in regulation but he badly hooked a 36-yard attempt as time expired. The Packers (14-4) won the toss in overtime but any excitement was quickly tempered when Brett Favre tried to hit Donald Driver on an out pattern. The ball was woefully underthrown and Corey Webster picked it off at the Green Bay 43. New York (13-6) was unable to move the ball and Tynes was given a second opportunity to win it with the 47-yarder. This time, the kick was perfect and split the uprights, lifting the Giants to Super Bowl XLII and a date with the New England Patriots.
