The New England Patriots and the New York Giants will compete for this year's Super Bowl in Indianapolis after winning their respective conference titles.

In the NFC match, the Giants downed the San Francisco 49ers by a single field goal.

Lawrence Tynes was the man who booted the New Yorkers to their second Super Bowl appearance in five seasons in sudden-death overtime.

The Giants will now face the New England Patriots in the final game next month, just as they did when they won it in 2008. Four years ago it was the same man, Lawrence Tynes, who kicked the game-winning field goal in overtime in the NFC title game that put the Giants in the Super Bowl.

Meanwhile in the AFC, the New England Patriots were the first to book their place after beating the stunned Baltimore Ravens 23-20.

Tom Brady scored the winning touchdown in the fourth quarter with a yard dive bringing the Patriots from behind.

This was the Patriots 7th AFC championship title.

The final match is set for February 5 in Indianapolis.
