The teams for the U.S. National Football League's Super Bowl XLVI championship game are set with the New England Patriots facing the New York Giants.

In the first of two conference championship games Sunday, the New England Patriots defeated the visiting Baltimore Ravens 23-20. The Patriots claimed the American Football Conference title when the Ravens missed a short field goal attempt with just 11 seconds remaining in the game.

The second game provided an equally exciting conclusion. The New York Giants kicked a field goal in overtime to defeat the host San Francisco 49ers 20-17 and claim the National Football Conference title.

The Giants and Patriots will play in the 46th Super Bowl on Sunday, February 5, inside the domed stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana. The same two teams played in the 2008 Super Bowl, with the Giants shocking the Patriots, 17-14.
