Lawrence Tynes Wins 2012 NFC Championship With Field Goal In Overtime, Sends Giants To Super Bowl XLVI

The New York Giants are going to Super Bowl XLVI. And for the second time in five years, they got to the NFL's ultimate game thanks to Lawrence Tynes making a field goal in overtime of the NFC Championship Game on the road.

Tynes put a 31-yarder dead center to give the Giants a 20-17 victory in the 2012 NFC Championship Game and set up a rematch of Super Bowl XLII against the New England Patriots.

Tynes had previously hit a game-winning overtime field goal for the Giants in the 2008 NFC Championship Game to beat the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field.

"Oh my gosh, twice," he told FOX's Pam Oliver after the game.
