When it's all decorated the curtains are pulled up and back to open up the windows

Okay, it's the start of the 4th quarter and Packers lead 28-24. Not a comfortable lead, looks like I'll have to keep my defibulator close to hand... Oh crap. Giants just hit a 50 yard field goal and have moved to within 1 point. But, Packers get the ball now. Still 11.27 to go, and Charles Woodson just left the game with a possible concussion. OHMYGODDESS, NO NO NO!
Update 8:02 p.m.
The Giants scored a TD and successfully made a 2-point conversion near the end of regulation play to tie the score 35-35. This description of what happened with under a minute to play in regulation is from the Milwaukee Journal/Sentinel Online:
Turning point: After the Giants tied things up at 35-35, Green Bay took over at its own 20 with 58 seconds left. Rodgers hit Jermichael Finley for 24 yards, Jordy Nelson for 27, Greg Jennings for 18 and Crosby drilled the game-winner. It was easily the offense’s best drive of the season.
I believe the game-winning field goal was a 30 yard field goal by kicker Mason Crosby to win the game by 3 points.
Is it just a coincidence that the Wisconsin Badgers won the Big 10 title game game last night by 3 points?
Look at the body control by veteran receiver Donald Driver (age 37 and I assume will retire at the end of this season), scoring a much-needed TD late in the 4th quarter:
