  • Coming back from 25 points behind in Matt Cassel Jersey the Super Bowl just doesnt happen. Never happens. Its unfathomable, unimaginable. Its as inconceivable as coming back from down three games to one in the NBA Finals.Or coming back from being down 3-1in the World Series.Somehow, in the last eight months, between June 2016 and February 2017, the championships in Americas three biggest pro sports were decided when teams dug out of near-unprecedented holes to achieve the impo sible.What the Patriots did to the Falcons in Super Bowl 51 on Sunday night in Houston, as astonishing as it was, merely mimicked what the Cavaliers did to the defending-champion Warriors in the NBA Finals last June, and what the Cubs did to the Indians in the World Series in November.MORE: How Pats pulled off epic comebackAll saved the most dramatic for last, too. In subduing the Falcons 34-28 in overtime, the Patriots had tough acts to follow Kyrie Irvings three-pointer with 53 seconds left in Game 7, and the Cubs hanging on in the 10th inning in their Game 7 (their first title in 108 years, its worth mentioning again).Tom Brady and the Patriots may have topped them. Like the Cubs, they had to go extra time to clinch it. But by the time they marched downfield with the overtime kickoff to James Whites winning touchdown, it all seemed like a foregone conclusion.The dirty work had already been done by Brady, recovering and reversing himself from a nightmare of a first half, overcoming deficits of 21-0 in the first half and 28-3 in the third quarter, to tie the game at 28 in the final minute.The Patriots shared this with the Cavaliers, too shutting down the reigning Most Valuable Player along the way. Stephen Curry couldnt complete the back-to-back NBA titles to go with the back-to-back Richard Ash Jersey MVPs, largely because the Cavs had a past battle-tested MVP of their own in LeBron James.Brady was LeBron to Matt Ryan, the Falcons Curry. (In the Cubs favor: they had the National League MVP on their side, Kris Bryant.)To go a step further, for a rare moment Brady looked rattled and borderline out of his own usually-steady head at one point, after he threw the first pick-six of his playoff career, in the second quarter, to give the Falcons the 21-0 lead.WATCH: Gisele freaks out when Patriots winSimilarly, James had gotten into the bizarre exchange with the Warriors Draymond Green in Game 4 of the Finals, in which Green got suspended for a game for kicking in James direction but which brought the fallibility of the superstar and his team in question.Ryan won the MVP the night before the Ezekiel Elliott Jersey Super Bowl andwas unstoppable in the first half, but he was on the wrong end of too many plays down the stretch a fumble when the lead was 28-12, a sack when the Falcons were deep in Patriots territory in position to put the game away, a sputtering, failed drive at the end of regulation.In the end, all Ryan had was a view from the sidelines when the Patriots never let him on the field in overtime.The Patriots, then, now have the two biggest comebacks in Super Bowl history they trailed Super Bowl 49 to the Seahawks 24-14 in the fourth Darrion Weems Jersey quarter, but this second-half deficit to the Falcons blew that one away.The Cavaliers were the first NBA team to come back from 3-1 in the Finals, something social media likely will never let the Warriors forget. The Cubs became just the sixth team to overcome the 3-1 World Series deficit.MORE: NFL players admit Brady is the GOATSo no, three such comebacks happening in e sentially one major-league sports season has never happened. The odds would be astronomical, and would get steeper, of course, as each sport reached its championship round.Apparently all bets were off, though, once Brady got involved.
