The San Diego Chargers and New York Giants won in thrillers that came down to the final minutes in what was supposed to be a showdown between Peyton Manning & Tom Brady and Tony Romo and Brett Favre. The Chargers and Giants obviously had other plans. San Diego won 28-24 and the Giants 21-17.
The Chargers won with Tomlinson missing time in the second half and Rivers injury giving way for back up Billy Volek to lead the way to the AFC Championship. Peyton threw for over 400 yards in a phenomenal game. It appears the other Manning will be planning in a championship game. Eli managed an efficient game down to the wire as the Giants Defense held up to win the game in a dominant defensive fashion as Romo saw the Dallas turf as he was constantly pressured.
Home field now shifts to Lambeau Field for the NFC. The script is almost complete for Favre to head back to the Super Bowl and stand before the Pats perfect season. The cast is almost complete and if anything can be learned from today's games is that anything can happen once the game begins. It should make for a wild ride in an entertaining season
