Super Bowl 2012: Giants' Website Briefly Claims They're 'Champions!'

The flub is about the same as The Miami Herald proclaiming the NBA's Miami Heat World Champions in their advertising section. The Heat lost the championship to the Dallas Mavericks in six games. Oops.

Will this really provide Tom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick with extra fuel? Probably not. They have other things to worry about, like Victory Cruz and Osi Umenyiora
