Day before SB46, web page proclaims Giants winners

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Oops. Talk about a Super Mistake.

Some 24 hours before the Super Bowl, this showed up on the web: "The Giants are Super Bowl CHAMPIONS," complete with an image of the Lombardi Trophy and a link to order championship gear. The problem: Kickoff was more than 24 hours away.

And quicker than you can say "Eli," it was gone.

The NFL said Saturday night that the web page was set up for possible use after Sunday's game between the Giants and Patriots, but was "inadvertently available for a brief period of time."
