A Super Bowl comeback was as uncommon for a while as Tom Brady playing poorly. There had not been a game when a team overcame a deficit of more than 10 points since the inaugural Super Sunday in 1967. Nothing compared to the Buffalo Bills' incredible 32-point comeback triumph over the Houston Oilers in the 1993 AFC wild-card game.
In actuality, nine out of the twelve games played between 1984 and 1995 had a final score of 17 points or more; these games included five of the six most lopsided games in NFL history. Therefore, fans were free to flip the channel or just concentrate on the commercials and the chili because blowouts were the norm and there was no hope of rallying from a deficit of more than 10 points (as it had never happened before).
However, everything changed on February 5, 2017, when Brady and the New England Patriots made it very clear that it would never again be safe to witness a one-sided Super Bowl. On our list of the all-time great Super Bowl comebacks, it comes in first.
In the third quarter of Super Bowl LI, the Patriots fell behind Matt Ryan and the Falcons 28-3, leaving Brady's legacy in disarray. However, the all-time great quarterback started getting ready for the task of pulling off the biggest comeback in the 51-year history of the sport.
With 446 passing yards, 62 completions on pass attempts, and 43 scoring runs, the 39-year-old quarterback smashed Super Bowl records as the Patriots, who finished the regular season with the best record in the NFL at 14-2, scored 31 points in a row. Before announcing his retirement, Brady would go on to win two more Super Bowls, one with the Patriots and one with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
With two scores on the rush and 14 receptions for 110 yards and a touchdown, James White had one of his best performances ever. With 0:57 left in regulation, his 1-yard run and Brady's two-point conversion pass to Danny Amendola tied the game. Tom has experienced many incredible ones. Head coach of New England Bill Belichick told reporters, "Tonight was one of them."
To win the Super Bowl, just three teams have overcame fourth-quarter deficits of ten points or more. The 2014 Patriots (more on them later); the Chiefs of 2019; and the previously mentioned 2016 Patriots. At Miami's Hard Rock Stadium, Jimmy Garoppolo, the 49ers, and Andy Reid's group were trailing.
and the 2016 Falcons' offensive coordinator, Kyle Shanahan, 20-10, but Mahomes, 24, gave the Chiefs a 21-point surge in the last 6:13 to win 31-20. The victory ended the team's fifty-year title drought as well as Reid's two-decade wait after the Philadelphia Eagles rejected him for a Super Bowl berth.
