Even sports like the NFL have been filled with amazing comebacks.
Who can forget the comeback win by the New England Patriots over the Atlanta Falcons back in Super Bowl LI?
The Falcons were up 28-3 to the Patriots.
But poor Matt Ryan had to see one of the biggest comebacks by Tom Brady while sitting on the sideline after the Patriots scored drive after drive to pull off the major comeback.
Well, Ryan just had another awful day and was on the receiving end of another unforgettable comeback.
The poor guy probably had flashbacks.
Matt Ryan and the Colts ran up the score on the overrated Minnesota Vikings 33-0 in the first half of the game this past weekend.
But that’s when the worst case scenario happened for the Colts.
After being dominant in the first quarter, the Colts could barely move the ball in the second half thanks to a lackluster offense being run by Matt Ryan.
And the Vikings were out for revenge after getting stomped for two quarters.
And the Vikings started their curb stomping of the Colts by only allowing three points in the second half and scoring in the last five touchdowns the last two quarters.
It's pure PA.

By the end of regulation, the game was tied 36-36 with a two point conversion by Vikings tight end T.J. Hockenson with just around two minutes left.

And as the Colts were in shock, the Vikings won the game in overtime by a field goal.
The Colts gave up the biggest lead in the history of the NFL, a whopping 33 point lead washed away.
To put that into perspective, teams with a 30+ point lead had a 1,548-1-1 record since 1930 in the NFL.
Someone needs to put Matt Ryan into counseling after giving up the biggest lead in the history of the league even after losing Super Bowl LI.
