Three days ago, Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs orchestrated a tremendous comeback to snatch the Lombardi Trophy out of the hands of the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV. Well, Wednesday also happens to mark the three-year anniversary of arguably the greatest come-from-behind victory in sports history. Yes, we're talking about the New England Patriots overcoming a 28-3 deficit to defeat the Atlanta Falcons in Super Bowl LI.

A sweet memory for Patriots fans, while Falcons die hards are going to endure some unwanted flashbacks from that dreadful night.

Halfway through the third quarter, the Falcons looked to be on the verge of winning their first-ever Super Bowl. Then, thanks to questionable play-calling from Falcons offensive coordinator (and current 49ers head coach) Kyle Shanahan, Tom Brady and the Patriots gained new life.

And the rest was history.

The Patriots dynasty continued, while the Atlanta sports scene was more miserable than ever. Regardless, this game will go down as arguably the greatest Super Bowl of all-time.
