NEW YORK (AP) - Authorities in New York say two men have been charged with making and selling counterfeit tickets for the Super Bowl and other postseason NFL games.

Queens District Attorney Richard A. Brown and Police Commissioner William J. Bratton announced charges Tuesday against Damon Daniels, of New York City, and Eugene Fladger, of Philadelphia.

Information on their attorneys was not immediately available.

Authorities say blocks of high-quality fake tickets were also sold online for an AFC divisional round playoff game in Foxborough, Mass., and an NFC Wild Card game in Philadelphia.

They say other forged tickets were offered for the NFL Commissioner's Party at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in Manhattan, the NFL Honors Party at Radio City Music Hall, and Super Bowl parking.

The NFL's security division had tipped off the NYPD.
