The Buffalo Bills’ comeback from a 35-3 second-half deficit was the most memorable wildcard game in recent NFL history. But what qualifies for the silver medal?
The Catch II – Terrell Owens makes a leaping catch of a 25-yard Steve Young pass with three seconds left to lift San Francisco to a come-from-behind victory over Green Bay in the 1998 playoffs.
The Music City Miracle – Kevin Dyson takes a cross-the-field pass from Frank Wycheck and runs 75 yards on a kickoff return to score the winning TD in a 1999 playoff defeat of Buffalo.
The Comeback II – Indianapolis rallies from a 28-point first-half deficit to score an improbable 45-44 come-from-behind defeat of Kansas City in the 2013 playoffs.
Tebowmania —Tim Tebow takes the first snap of overtime in the 2011 playoffs and launches an 80-yard touchdown pass to defeat the defending conference champion Pittsburgh Steelers.
Favre to Sharpe – Brett Favre throws a 40-yard TD pass to Sterling Sharpe with 55 seconds left to rally Green Bay to a come-from-behind defeat of Detroit in a game where Barry Sanders ran for 167 yards.
Earthquake in Seattle – Marshawn Lynch keyed a Seattle comeback with a 67-yard fourth-quarter run through six tacklers that provoked such a crowd response that it caused earthquake-like tremors in the Seahawks’ 41-36 defeat of defending Super Bowl champion New Orleans.
