The  New England Patriots  pulled off the best comeback in Super Bowl history.

No team had  ever come back  from a more than a 10-point deficit to win the championship. The Patriots were down 25.

ESPN charted  the Falcons' win probability at 98 percent with under nine minutes left in regulation.

There aren't too many other  NFL playoff comebacks  that measure up.

The Buffalo Bills still hold the record for biggest comeback. They were down 32 points against the Houston Oilers in the 1993 playoffs but came back to win in overtime.

On the whole, the Patriots' comeback ranks third in playoff history — which was probably just fine with Patriots fans Sunday.
