Heartbreaker - Well, the Patriots went 18-1 but, like a dominating NASCAR driver who leads the most laps, the only lap that counts is the last one. The Giants played their game, kept the score low, and hit their marks when it counted. New York Giants over the New England Patriots, 17-14.

Sorry, Mike.

Does a perfect record count when it all goes the opposite way?

Patriots... yes McCain in the primaries... not McCain in November... the "power" of conservative radio... it just ain't gonna be Michael Graham's year.

3rd and 5. Patriots 14, Giants 10. Less than 1 minute left.

Eli Manning escapes the sack in an unbelievable play that could never be practiced, and thus, surreptitiously taped.

And David Tyree makes the catch of the game, right on top of steroid cheat Rodney Harrison.

Did you see Harrison, trying to pull the ball out of Tyree's hands after the play was dead? ( The Patriots tried that trick all night, and it never worked.

Hooray for the forces of good!

It damn sure worked for the Gaints running back who pulled a recovered fumble away from the Patriots in the pile. Didn't understand why Bellichek didn't challenge that one.

I remember that play. Although it looked like the Patriots player was the most likely to get possession, the football was still loose until it was obscured from view.

The oddest non-move by Bellichick was to not try for the first down or the field goal on 4th-and-3. And then the guy runs a play on 4th-and-13 soon afterwards.
