The New England Patriots captured the Super Bowl LI crown with the largest comeback effort in NFL history. The Patriots overcame a 25-point deficit in the first overtime period in Super Bowl history to earn the franchise’s fifth title.
How exactly did New England maintain its composure to forge forward and score 31 unanswered points? Bill Belichick answered that question on Monday morning.
We know it’s the largest comeback in NFL history, but here’s another stat to help put the come-from-behind effort in perspective.
Entering yesterday, teams w/ at least a 17-pt lead after the 3rd quarter were 133-0 all-time in postseason.
