Indianapolis Colts Vs Minnesota Vikings Biggest comeback in NFL
The Minnesota Vikings staged the biggest comeback in NFL history to upset the Indianapolis Colts 39-36 after trailing by 33 points at the half.
The Colts' defence shut down the Vikings' attack, scoring twice on interceptions and punt blocks that were both returned for scores as they ran out to a 33-0 lead.
However, the Vikings reversed the course of events in the second half, scoring five touchdowns, including a run of 64 yards by the Vikings.
When time ran out in overtime, Vikings kicker Greg Joseph connected on a 40-yard field goal to seal the comeback victory after both sides were forced to punt despite having possession of the ball.
After the unexpected victory that sealed the NFC North, the official Minnesota Vikings Twitter account shared a picture of the squad with the phrase "The Kings in the North."
The Buffalo Bills' 32-point comeback against the Houston Oilers in the 1992 Wild Card round was the previous-largest comeback in NFL history.
Entering Sunday, teams with a 30+ point lead had an 1548-1-1 record since 1930.
