QUICK GAME REPORT

FOXBOROUGH -- Houston, here we come! Ty Law intercepted Peyton Manning three times, and Adam Vinatieri was a perfect five-for-five in field goals, as the Patriots punched their ticket to Super Bowl XXXVIII with a 24-14 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game.

New England will now play in two weeks at Reliant Stadium in Houston and try to win their second Super Bowl in three years.

Antowain Smith rushed for exactly 100 yards, and Tom Brady fired a touchdown pass to David Givens in the first quarter.

Manning threw four interceptions total, and Jarvis Green registered three sacks of Manning. The fans exploded in celebration at game's end, with snowy conditions dominating most of the contest.
