The New England Patriots are truly going where no football team has gone before.

18-0. Even the undefeated '72 Dolphins never made it to 18-0. They only had 17 games to play (including a 14 game regular season). The Pats got their 18th win of the season with a 21-12 win over the San Diego Chargers today. It was a bit of an ugly win, but New England got it done and is going to the Super Bowl. Tom Brady actually looked human today, throwing three interceptions. The defense (holding the Chargers to just four field goals) and the running backs (Laurence Maroney and Kevin Faulk were both brilliant, especially in the second half) really won the game for the Pats.

We just found out the identity of the Patriots opponent. After Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes missed a field goal with regulation time running out, the Packers won the toss, getting the ball first in overtime. The legendary Brett Favre tossed an interception and gave Tynes another chance. The kicker hit a 47-yarder to send the Giants to Arizona. It should be a bit warmer there than tonight's weather at Lambeau Field (-4 degrees).

The Giants were victim #16 down at the Meadowlands a few weeks back. We'll see if the Pats can beat them again to complete the perfect season.
