San Fran's special teams turnovers give Giants NFC title

49ers punt returner Kyle Williams lost two late fumbles -- one off of his knee -- to allow the Giants to tie the NFC Championship in the fourth and then win it 20-17 in overtime. The New England-New York Super Bowl matchup is a rematch of the 2008 classic that saw Eli Manning, David Tyree and the Giants beat the previously undefeated Pats 17-14.
