Vikings’ comeback from 33-0 is the greatest in NFL history

This wasn’t Kirk Cousins’ first time piloting this kind of comeback, even this year. And even if this one was, at least statistically, unprecedented over 103 seasons of NFL games.

So as the Vikings quarterback left US Bank Stadium in downtown Minneapolis on Saturday afternoon—wearing a loud purple sport coat with Vikings logos and his family in tow—he thought about another comeback. Only this one was with another team, and with another coach, and perfectly encapsulated what it took to rebound from a 33-0 deficit to the Colts and turn it into a 39-36 overtime win.
