Fifty Super Bowls went by before an NFL championship game went into overtime when the New England Patriots took down the Atlanta Falcons 34-28 in the 2016 season from NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. This was one of the wildest Super Bowls to ever happen as the Patriots trailed 28-3 late in the third quarter and pulled off the biggest comeback in the game’s history.
New England tied the game at 28 with less than a minute left when James White scored a 1-yard touchdown, followed by a successful 2-point conversion from Tom Brady to Danny Amendola. In the only overtime possession, the Patriots drove right down the field, and a 2-yard TD for White sealed the victory.
The Patriots appeared in the two Super Bowls after that victory, including a 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams. As for the Falcons, they made the playoffs the following season but haven’t been back to the postseason since.
Update — You can throw Chiefs-49ers into the group of Super Bowls to go to overtime.
