Colts have historic collapse vs. Vikings

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Indianapolis Colts were up 33-0 with 8:30 left in the third quarter of Saturday’s game, and they ended up losing 39-36 in a wild second half turnaround for the Vikings.

The Colts actually had a 99 percent chance to win the game when they were up by 33. It all came crashing down by the fourth quarter when Minnesota staged an incredible run. The Colts weren’t able to answer them on both ends of the field, allowing the Vikings to score 22-0 and complete the comeback in overtime.

It is the biggest comeback in NFL history, and it helped the Vikings clinch the NFC North. The Colts not only had the biggest collapse in the NFL ever, but they have also now lost four straight games as their playoff hopes get bleak.

At 4-9-1, the Colts will get eliminated if the 7-6 Tennessee Titans win or even just tie their game against the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.
