For the ninth time in 20 playoff appearances, the New England Patriots are just one game from advancing to the Super Bowl. That game will be played at Gillette Stadium on Sunday, Jan. 20 at 6:30 p.m. against the Baltimore Ravens. It's the second consecutive season the Patriots and Ravens will meet in the AFC Championship game, with the Pats topping the Birds 23-20 in last year's matchup to punch their ticket to Super Bowl XLVI.

If you're a local football fan, the New England Patriots' controversial Sunday Night loss to the Baltimore Ravens probably left you with a bad taste in your mouth and a strong opinion about the status of officiating in the NFL. The much-discussed replacement referee issue was forced front-row center again Monday night when a nationally-televised game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers appeared to be determined by an incorrect call made by a team of back-up officials. So, we have to ask - what do you think about the quality of officiating in the NFL? Do you think the league owes it to the players, owners and fans to put the best product on the field, no matter what it costs? Should League Commissioner Roger Goodell bend …

From Eli Manning to Victor Cruz and New England's lousy defense, the Giants have all the advantages in their corner.

In sports, I’m a big proponent of sticking to things you’ve been successful with throughout the year in order to win the end game. The same applies at the Super Bowl. “This is a big game for the Giants organization,” said Eli Manning. “This is a big …
