The Minnesota Vikings completed the greatest comeback in NFL history against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday.
The game was crazy. Indianapolis was up 33-0 at halftime and appeared to be in complete control until the second half. Minnesota outscored the Colts 36-3 in the third and fourth quarters to send the game into overtime.
Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins orchestrated a six-play, sixty-yard drive in overtime to set up kicker Greg Joseph for the game-winning 40-yard field goal as time expired to shock the world.

The shocking win clinched Minnesota a playoff spot as they became NFC North champions. With the win, they will now have a playoff game in January when the postseason begins.
Can’t help but feel for Colts quarterback Matt Ryan here. Ryan was the quarterback behind the greatest Super Bowl comeback of all time in 2017 when his Atlanta Falcons blew a 25-point second half lead in Super Bowl 51 to lose to the New England Patriots 34-28.

This loss undoubtedly makes Ryan the face of making huge comebacks in football.
Unfortunately, his legacy will be largely defined by these two incredible losses to New England and Minnesota.
