Greatest comeback ever?

    No, it's not the greatest comeback ever.

    The Oilers played as close to perfect a half of football as a team on the road can in that game. It's not the 32-point differential, it's how conclusive the verdict seemed to be in the third quarter.

    It should go without saying, but it's worth noting that the Bills didn't have the option of a two-point conversion on Jan. 3, 1993. Unlike the Colts and the 49ers, who made a ridiculous comeback in the playoffs four years ago.

    The Bills/Oilers was much bigger.
    While I acknowledge that the Colts were on life support there for a period, this shouldn't be overblown.
    Once they got a stop, and Peyton registered a TD, the game was back close enough to where it was anyone's ballgame.
    21-3 aint so bad
    21-6 is even more manageable.
    Let's not overblow this.
    Joe Montana's Cotton Bowl comeback over UofHouston, now that's a comeback
    This was just 18 points, in the first half. Not as big of a deal as one might think.
