Last-second QB heroics this week were extraordinary

A 13-point lead with four minutes left in the game is usually money in the bank in the NFL.

Of 553 games over the last five years until last Monday night, only two teams overcame deficits like that.

And then it happened twice in four days with the same score.

Both winning teams were behind 16-3 and both scored two touchdowns to win in the final 10 seconds.

Tom Brady threw the game-winning touchdown pass with three seconds left to beat the Saints Monday night, and then Baker Mayfield — who had only joined the Rams two days earlier — threw the game-winner with eight seconds left to beat the Raiders.

What are the odds of that happening?

The problem is that many fans probably turned off their TV sets, thinking the games were over.

Next question is when and if it will happen again this year.
