According to ESPN Stats & Information research, no team in the last 20 years had blown two 15-point, fourth-quarter leads in the same season. The Falcons have now done it in consecutive weeks.
According to Elias Sports Bureau, the Bears are the first team in NFL history to win two games in a single season in which they were trailing by at least 16 points entering the fourth quarter.
Given that the Bears got behind and made a much-anticipated QB change, there were emotional swings for both teams. But for the NFL's GOAT lead-blowers, the internet was again an unkind place.
