One of the was in 1992, when the Cowvoys built a 34-0 lead on the Giants. The Giants would come back and Phil Simms would throw 3 TDs passes to make it 34-28. There wasn't much time left though, and the Cowboys picked up a 1st down to run out the clock


Another one was in 1997. The Bills fell behind on the Broncos 20-0 but somehow came back in the 4th quarter behind Todd Collins to tie it at 20 and force overtime. It was all for naught, however, as the Broncos kicked a field goal in overtime to win

Jets/Steelers in the 2011 AFC Championship Game. The Jets were down 24-0 with 10 seconds left in the second quarter. The final score was 24-19. Mark Sanchez was awesome that game.

My thinking as well.

How many of these performances were road playoff games?

Yep. Pats were down 31-3 in the third quarter before scoring 28 unanswered, only to finally give up the game-winning TD to the 49ers.

Earlier this season, Denver had one against Atlanta, and one against Houston, but each made a first down late to put the game away.

Also, in the 1976 NFC Title, the Vikes jumped out to a 17-0 lead early in the third quarter. The Rams managed to get it to 17-13, but Dempsey missed a critical extra point that would haunt LA later. With about 2 minutes to go, Pat Haden fired a long pass to Ron Jessie, who looked wide open, but Bobby Bryant came out of nowhere to intercept it. The Vikes went down and put it away after that on a 12-yard Sammy Johnson TD rush.

Came here to say this. Of course, I may be slightly biased though.
