What is the worst collapses(or comeback) that you have seen in the NFL?

Its can be a game(Houston Oilers 1992) as a late-season collapse(vikings 2003) or other.

And what is the worst collapse(or comeback) your favorite team has made?

In recent memory, Fitz Magic going off for 35 points in the second half against us last season.

What makes this collapse special is not just that we gave up a big first half lead. But that we ended up getting blown out. I've seen teams blow big leads all the time, but go from having a double digit lead to losing by 18?

Lions made it to the half way point of 2007 going 6-2. They won 5 of their next 52 games.

But they've won their last 7.

For the Panthers it's pretty easy. 2001. We started the season with a win against the Vikings and then proceeded to lose every other game on the schedule.

2004 was the opposite. We started the season going 1-7. But finished going 6-2. Was easily the most satisfying 7-9 season in memory.

The only positive is that it separates the men from the boys. The fans from THE FANS. You survive the Millen era of Detroit, nobody can ever question your loyalty.

Favourite game comeback was When the Lions scored 34 4th quater points to beat the Bears 37-27...in 2007

Was a record then, not sure it still stands today for the most 4th quarter points, and of course least favourite as mentioned above....Winning 5 of 52 games over a 3 and a half year period is just heartache...

Bucs had a pretty big collapse in 2008. No team in history ever started 9-3 and missed the playoffs.

The 1999 Steelers started 5-3. Lost 7 of the next 8 games to finish 6-10.

Both of those are my favorite teams... so.

Most recent collapse I can name though would be the 2009/10 Broncos though. Started 6-0 to end up 8-8. Once they got 6-0 they only won 5 of their next 22 games under McDaniels.

For the Steelers, in 2009 it was a collapse, but in 1998 it was worse.

The Steelers were 7-4 and he plays a game against the lions, but the Steelers lose a game because of a coin toss in overtime that the referee had not understood.

They then finished the season 7-9 and they had a record of 6-18 was from this game.

Bucs collapse in 2008. May have been a blessing in disguise though, if it had never happened Donovan McNabb would probably be our QB right now and Gruden would still have his job. *shudder*

True cant lie....and the Passion still burns to this day...the run of 5/52 isnt so bad if your talking Hockey/Baseball/Basketball simply as its One Season....when its stretched out over 3 and a Half Years of your life....its just brutal....its like a Never Ending Nightmare You Just Dont Wake Up From Laughing

Though Touch Wood Despite The Lions Weaknesses...They Are A Completely Different Team Today

I'm surprised that more people don't remember this, or only remember parts of it, but 2008 (a strange year in general) was full of late season collapses.

Jets - Started 8-3, and after crushing the undefeated Titans on the road, they were getting Super Bowl talk. They collapsed against a pretty weak schedule and finished two games out of a playoff spot.

Broncos - 3 games ahead with 3 games to go, LOLs ensue to this day.

Cowboys - Started 8-4, fell apart at the end of the year to finish 9-7. Texas Stadium is closed out in style.

Redskins - Started 6-2, closed out season in pathetic fashion and finished 8-8.

Buccaneers - Started 9-3, then got embarrassed by Carolina on Monday Night. They didn't win another game and missed the playoffs.

Really, it's amazing how many teams crashed at the end of the year. Unprecedented.

The 1993 Dolphins started 9-2 and finish 9-7 and missed the playoffs

The 1994 eagles started 7-2. Lost last 7 games and finish 7-9 .

The 1995 Raiders started 8-2 and finish 8-8
