There was alot of stupidity going on late in that game, including players from both teams getting in after whistle fights in the last 2 minutes with a 1 point game. They both should be DQ'ed and give The Pack that spot
I don't think the Giants got screwed on this call. But even if they did, I can live with a New York team getting screwed for once. Usually it's the other teams that get screwed against New York, and I'm not just talking football here.

Hmm, Sunday Morning Sportcenter and all three pregame shows are talking about it. Monday(late Sunday) Sportcenter and Evening Sportcenter are talking about(as well as the NYC local news making it the number 2 sports story behind the Jets.)
Nope, it just got swept up and buried by the media.
Karma is already hard at work to right the cosmic balance of the NFL. Submitted for your approval:
1.) San Fran screws the NY Giants to get over...and gets hammered by Tampa Bay. Yer outta here!
2.) Atlanta screws GB (by "screws," I mean "played better than my beloved Pack, earned the victory, and killed a bit of Lambeau history")...and falls to Philly. Yer outta here!
3.) Philly will continue its dominance of the no-road-game-playoff-win-havin' Bucs, as the Vet gets one more win. This one's for Chad Clifton! (OK, not really.)
1.) The Browns, owners of such gimmicked losses as "The Drive," "The Fumble," "The Flag-In-The-Eye," and "The Helmet" come up with yet another gimmick loss: "The Clock," breaking my buddy's heart in the process. (Being a Browns fan, though, he's used to it.) Steelers get over...only to hand the Titans kicker another chance after the worse falling-down-to-draw-a-charge-call this side of March Madness. Pittsburgh...yer outta here!
2.) The Jets, who helped sink that dagger in Green Bay's back as much as that Vick dude, get rolled by my soon-to-be-brother-in-law's team. NY...yer outta here!
3.) Oakland beats Tennessee in The Black Hole (where's Ernest Borgnine, Maximillian Schell and that damn wise-ass robot V.I.N.C.E.N.T.?), setting up a rematch of Super Bowl XV...this time 100% Plunkett-free.
World Championship: Oakland 27, Philly 14.

I like it. It's ridiculous that defenders could be penalized for a helmet-to-helmet hit in cases where the ballcarrier is just as responsible. And if they're going to actually care about concussions (or pretend that they care)
