BOSTON (CBS) – The New York Giants web staff committed a major gaffe on Saturday and may have given the Patriots some bulletin board material for the Super Bowl.

On Saturday, NYGiants.com posted an ad on their website declaring the Giants Super Bowl Champions.

The ad also contained a link to buy championship merchandise.

Someone eventually noticed the error and took down the ad.

If you try to see the page now, you’ll be redirected to Giants homepage instead after getting a “Page Not Found” error.

Many Giants fans expressed via Twitter and Facebook they were worried the Giants were jinxing the game by declaring victory too soon.

Patriots fans sure hope so.

Tune in to Super Bowl XLVI between the Patriots and Giants on 98.5 The Sports Hub, the only place to hear the local call of the game. Pregame coverage begins Sunday, February 5 at noon.

    Hey, look, it’s the Big Crapple! Don’t be surprised if they have bought the refs to insure the win. After all, that IS how they do things there. It ain’t only the “Chicago” way…

      Heh. Obviously money talks! Maybe you “New Englanders” won’t be so friggin; cheap next time. After all, the refs gotta make a living. Can’t expect them to work for the peanuts that the NFL pays them. Not when some of the losers in the league are getting 7-figure salaries, anyway…

    so the logic is…

    predicting a superbowl win, and not getting it, provide proof positive of a jinx effect.

    predicting a superbowl win, AND getting it, proves nothing.

    I did not care who won this game until the giants assumed they had won already – now I’m pulling for the Patriots.

    Not the worst mistake the NFL ever made. This is:
