The New York Giants official Web site committed a super "oops" on the eve of Super Bowl Sunday.

Visitors to the page briefly saw an image Saturday announcing "THE GIANTS ARE SUPER BOWL CHAMPIONS!"

There were photos of several jubilant Giants stars along with with the Vince Lombardi Trophy.

There was also a link to let fans buy championship gear.

The page was only posted for a short time before it was taken down.

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."
