Final: Giants 23 - Packers 20

On the second play from scrimmage in overtime, Brett Favre threw his second interception of the game, allowing the Giants to take over the ball at about the Packers' 35-yard line.

The Pack gave the Giants opportunity after opportunity and they finally took advantage of it on a 47-yard field goal.

Congrats to the Giants.

And congrats to the Pack on a most unexpected -- and successful -- season. Too bad it had to end this way. This was not the Packers' best game, by any sense of the word.

The loss hurts for many reasons. It's a game the Pack could have and should have won. But more on this tomorrow. Including hopefully learning why the Pack stayed away from the running game from the get-go, never even giving it a shot to work.

If you care to express your opinion on the most disappointing aspect of the Packers' loss, I invite you to vote in the new poll (open through Friday afternoon) in the righthand column.
