PLAYOFF UPDATE: Giants Win, and a Tebow Time Upset Special

By Alan Schechter

Divisional week is set, and an interesting afternoon it was.

The early game was all Giants, after giving up a safety, the Giants put up 24 unanswered points to top the Falcons 24-2.  Eli Manning threw for 3 TDs, 2 to Hakeem Nicks and one to Mario Manningham to lead New York to a Green Bay trip next week.

Then, your upset special.  Tebow Time was back in Pittsburgh at the late game tonight, as the Broncos won in overtime, 29-23.  The Broncos led most of the way, up 10 late.  A furious Ben Rothlisberger come back sent the game to overtime.  The first potentially non sudden death OT game ended quickly however.  On the first play from scrimmage, Tim Tebow hit Demaryius Thomas with an 80 yard TD pass to stun the Steelers crowd and book a trip to New England for the Broncos.

So here are your matchups next week:
