The Minnesota Vikings pulled off a stunning comeback against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday night in what was possibly the best NFL game of the season to date.
The Colts raced out of the blocks to snatch a 33-0 lead by halftime, prompting some empty seats. Fans were so bored they began throwing paper planes around the stadium. And one such projectile managed to reach the pitch in what’s quite an impressive feat.
Check it out in the video below.
There wouldn’t have been any planes being thrown around if not for the deficit; fans wouldn’t be treated to the biggest comeback in NFL history either.
The Vikings managed to shake off their horrible first-half performance, storming out to outscore Indianapolis 36-3 and tie the scores. Kicker Greg Joseph scored a 40-yard kick to secure an overtime win for Minnesota, giving Vikings fans a night they will never forget.
So there was that paper plane, and then the actual game…
Matt Ryan Can’t Take Much More Of This
The 33-point stampede marked the largest in league history, as mentioned above, and replaces the 32-point rally engineered by the Buffalo Bills against the Houston Oilers during an AFC wildcard fixture in 1992.
The comeback also leaves Colts quarterback Matt Ryan on the losing end of two of the five largest-ever comebacks as he played for the Atlanta Falcons when they gave up a 28-3 lead to lose to the New England Patriots at Super Bowl LI.
The 2016 NFL MVP will have to live with the unwanted record of getting the short end of the biggest comebacks in both Super Bowl and league history.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
